No polishing has yet been done by me as it rained, so the car is still wearing it's dealer applied filler glaze, but I'll get round to it soon. I gave it a quick coat of AF Finale and had a crack at the tail pipes with some autosol to finish. Hope you likey

Aaahhh! I was dead confused, I took 70 pics, and on other forums I'm on, they just link across and I can do my usual commentary as I go

Yes, you should

Hopefully tomorrow, I'll get claying and polishing and finish it properly

Thanks for the positive comments so far
