  • They say you can't polish a turd...

    I disagree, and have the proof.

    Here's pictures of what the vag looks like after Si spending the day working on it. Pictures truly don't do it justice, the dulled paintwork has been reinvigorated, scratches and bird-poo burns removed, and the shine on it is unreal. For the first time in years you get a clear reflection in the bodywork, not just a dull blur. Cleanest it's been for a long time. Hell, probably the cleanest it's EVER been. Consider me a very happy bunny and very satisfied customer.

    Oh, and Si, remember..... RAMMING SPEED!! lol

            You see Pete, THIS is what you get when you actually CLEAN a car - your challenge now is to KEEP it like this!

              Me, wash a car? Don't be silly boy, that's physical effort, I'm way too lazy for that these days. I'll just take it back to Si for a service wash every few months.

                Alas no (and I have the photographic evidence to prove it), but he's always telling me he loves to get his hands on some vag and make it all wet and soapy.

                        She looks fantastic from the pictures.
                        I'll inspect on Friday if she looks like a new car

                          Was a pleasure to work on your honourary Subaru.

                          The paint was exceptionally dull with literally zero reflection and a few minor scratches that just came out.

                          The whole car was only treated to a single stage polish all around with 2 passes completed on each panel. Then obviously dressed then sealed. But was prepped with a snow foam, wash, claybar then rewash.

                          Now there is actually a reflection from the paint work and I think Pete was happy with the results.

                            Hi Si
                            Mores the point I was very impressed with her
                            Remember I'm the one that has to be driven in her.
                            I love being driven in the Vag, but it felt even more special with that wonderful shine .
