    mike had a few scratches to remove on his bonnet.

    these were inflicted by those drying blades so beware.

    Only use drying towels not blades or shammy's!

    products used:

    hexlogic orange pad, medium to heavy cut.

    scholl s17 compound.

    the scholl compound is very good and can be worked for longer without drying out.

    ive found the meguires compounds not as good :(

    Thanks Badman for your help & advice in trying to eliminate Monty's stubborn blemishes, it was good just to see you and Rocket Man! :)
    Some pics to show that we were actually working, not just polishing off the Fish & Chips;)

    Is it an optical illusion? Is Badman's rear window bigger than ours??

    Is it me or does it look as if there was a lot of sitting down and drinking tea? Did you get "that scratch" out Mike? Mark, I can't wait for Rocket boy to take another chunk out of my trousers...lol

    Yes Macca, If you want good British workmanship then the Workers need to be kept constantly supplied With tea=))
