Well my photobucket account has finally reset so my photos can be seen Time to setup my progress thread on here. Copied from: http://www.zroadster.net/forum/viewtopi ... 68&start=0 September 19th 2010 Ok well as some of you know I recently sold my S50 to my brother because an identical S54 came up at a good price. Old S50 thread: http://www.zroadster.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=20225 I drove the car back on Friday and woke up this morning with the idea of giving it a 'little' clean. So 8 hours later the outside is done!! What I did: Engine bay & door shuts: The bay was filthy (my S50 put it to shame!!). I started with the underside of the bonnet using swiss vax brushes and AG Engine machine cleaner to agitate the dirt. I kept rinsing at intervals and made sure none of the exterior paint was exposed to the cleaner. I repeated the same process with the door shuts, they came up lovely! : - I then coated the enginer bay in AG Vinyl care and using a sponge to coat evenly - I also coated the paintwork in the engine bay/door shuts with AG wax then buffed off - I replaced the worn foils to protect the paintwork The outside - Jetwashed then went round washing with AG Shampoo followed by a further rinse - Dried with Dodo juice towel - Rubbed on a layer of AG Super Resin polish (inc the wheels to remove marks) and buffed off - Followed with a coat of AG High Definition Wax, then buffed off - Rubbed HD wax into wheel arch paint and buffed off - Rubbed on Tyre Shine - I used autosol to bring the exhaust tips back to their former glory (they are WIP though and require more elbow grease) The spec: - Jan 02 - 45k on the clock - HK Stereo system - Strong Strut Problems i've noticed already: - Dented door sill needs looking at - Rear wheel has large kerb mark which is very deep, so might be on the lookout for a single rim - All wheel refurb is needed - Headlight washer missing The Car now looks great! I'll be doing a full work over on the interior once the audio & ACS hoops are fitted. Comments welcome!!
