    Limited Edition RS500

    This is one of six i have booked in at present of the 101 allocated to the uk.
    Full matt wrap supplied by 3m and mountune 350bhp upgrade as standard.
    The car was done at a Ford dealership ready for the customer to collect upon finish of pdi.
    Was fun to do and everything had to be perfect with no cross contamination so even my buckets were washed out with isopropanol and everything was bought brand new including mitts , cloths and drying towels. The matt wrap needs a fully fledged oil free product range so swissvax opaque was used but timing on this range is critical i think therefore i didnt use halogens as i didnt want the extra heat.

    It's very clean as usual, good job with that. However, the car ... it looks dull, boring & lifeless. It's like the local chav sanded it down with some wet & dry and sprayed it with some Dulux matt paint.

    Not at all impressed, £35,000 for a car with no real shine and still no Brembo's!!

    Oh and whats with the clear non-tinted rear lights? Totally ruining the arse of the car!

    Sorry for going off topic.

    Not to my taste, but works well - never find that 303 stuff to be much cop, it doesn't last long on exterior plastics and just runs down the bodywork and streaks it when it rains...

    That's because you don't understand the product as it's not designed to make trim look fancy it's designed to offer uv potection to plastics and rubber parts so that in 10 years time your door seals will still be as fresh and supple as when you bought the car.
    Pilot error I'm afraid not product.
    You want a product to snaz up your plastics and interior try something like black wow for exterior with it's heritage in the max factor silicone era or a specific trim enhancer.

    Yep the 500 is marmite without any doubt at all and all criticism is duly noted because for the money personally it's a mega boo boo in my eyes but hey I have two to do this coming weekend one in Eastbourne to do sat and one in Surrey Sunday so they are growing on me

    i do love the look of an RS but agree with others, it doesnt appeal to me in matt black!

    But what a difference you have made, awesome work!
