Finally finished photos!

Sorry for the delay! This is the first weekend I've had to give the beast a proper detail since I got it back a few weeks ago.

The guys at the panel shop have given it a light buff but want it back in the third week of September once the paint has cured when they will give it a final buff. As a result, there were a few areas where I can notice slight marks in full sunlight, but these are just where they have rubbed back small imperfections and will certainly be removed completely with the final buff.

Other than that, the paint is 100% perfect, and it would be almost impossible to pick that it's not original

I'm glad I replaced the headlight lenses (and cleaned & refurbed the internals - they are so much brighter now), and replaced all the black shadowline doorframe surrounds and bumper plastics. It looks incredible and the photos don't do it justice!

But it's highlighted that I need to replace the black door side moulds and re-tint the windows as both aren't perfect and are letting it down now that the rest is so good.

I've spent most of the day detailing it (it's now Sunday night here), including a coat of Turtle Wax Platinum Series (great stuff!) which has completely removed any buffings swirls. Yes - I'll have to do it again once they give it another going over! So a couple of photos are attached, and I'll get hold of a good camera and take some really nice shots once it's completely finished.

Nick

great shots Nick and it looks a treat!
I reckon updated lights or blue fog light lenses would help finish it off....

Hey Ben, it's running fantastic (I forgot how fast it was)! The problem was always intermittent and all that sitting around seems to have helped! But I've got all the gear I listed to do a lot of engine work and will do the vanos at the same time. It will have to be over Christmas when I've got some time off. Meanwhile I'm keen to catch up for a blast somewhere with you and the other Sydney guys...

SHOW AND SHINE
ALL GERMAN VEHICLES


Hi David, we're definiely keen for that!! But we will be coming back from a wedding at Coffs Harbour that day (probably not in the M5 until I know my vanos is 100% sorted). But we'll definitely come through for a look probably late morning. I'll give you a buzz!
