Well this one has been on the cards for some time now but the weather has always put it off, finally the weather was good so matt arrived at 9am and since i was up every thing was ready so i cracked straight on.
With the exception of a few before pictures all the pictures were taken by matt throughout the day until he dropped his camera in some water so then had to take the finished shots with my camera phone...(sorry quality is not perfect)
When the car arrived it had the usuall swirls and dirt, but matts main problem was it had a faded bonnet, boot, roof and passanger wing and since we just had the 1 day for now this is all i really concentrated on apart from a quick pass on the rest of the car just to bring up some gloss....baring in mind this is the first time i have ever done anything on 2 pack paint, and dam its not fun to work with...
Any way before pictures..

Dryed again, and this is when matt dropped his camera so no more pics from him.
