Bought some presents for Fifi the 2nd :)

Recently traded my old White ZS in for a used Black Metal, but the previous owner didn't treat her properly & the paintwork is covered in swirls :(

 

Just need to book some time off work now to take the plunge into the world of machine polishing. Wish me luck!

I'm buying a set of more race-orientated tyres, RAC bailed me out this time :P did get a few videos, but unfortunately the phone strapped to the outside of the car fell off and got run over before being recovered, and I now can't get the case off lol.

Just take your time, keep away from the edges of panels, really should tape edges and mist water onto pad to keep cool, the pad heats up when dry and thats when you run the risk of burning paint, if you polisher has the function turn it down till you get the hang of it, then coat up after with a couple of coats of decent wax, poorboys do a lovely glaze product for black cars called poorboys blackhole, this will actually hide minor swirls and imperfections, then coat with wax. at least the DA is a lot milder than a rotary polisher that can give you more swirls than you started with when using a compound too coarse.

Drilled six 20mm holes in the front right side of the Air box lid to help induction,
Took it for a run afterwards, induction noise has increased and pick up seems a bit smoother when crushing in 5th gear and put the foot down seems smoother on pick up
