As I mentioned on my other post, the car is now at gtechniq being polished and protected..

They have just sent me some progress shots. The final shot shows the boot lid.

Once the job is finished there will be before and after shots to help demonstrate what they have achieved.

Collected the car yesterday and was very happy with the results. It actually looks a different colour and the detail in the metalic paint is easily visible.

The leather cleaned up really well, feels and smells new!

The company will be hosting some before and after hi-res shots soon, but here's a few shot on my own camera.

I'd love to get mine looking as clean, but with the mileage I'm doing it would only last an hour before I was back to square 1 :sad2:

......well coming from you Richard I'll take that, especially with the quality of your cars interior :trophy_bronze:.

I'll start looking for it immediately.....African sun isn't too kind to leather.

Thanks

Erik, I unfortunately spend more time cleaning my car than driving it...but have a pretty good knowledge and collection of polishes, waxes, wash-mitts, additional chemicals and towels etc!! Looking after leather is not hard, but takes some time and care.
