    It's the attention to detail that makes all the difference.
    If you didn't stop to take al the photographs, how long do you think this job would take?

    That's good. I really liked the fact that you gave it all a good clean too.
    Did I spot a little rust where the mirror bolts to the door?

    I always clean as I go and yes you did any advice on tackling it?

    Rust is always difficult.
    If it goes behind the upright, then that's a little trickier. You really need to access it all.

    I would clean it all off and then use one of the 'rust eating' products, primer, colour and then clear coat.
    I don't think that patch is visible when everything is back, so you could apply the paint etc with a small, artist-type brush.
    All you really need is to try and re-seal the metal.

    I'm sure the bodywork experts will be able to give you a better solution.

    Yeah it's not visible when the mirror is on so will do what you said and apply with a small brush to seal it :Niceone:

    Thanks for the kind reviews @Nels and @SpeedyGee appreciated and has been a while since done one :Smile:

    I could do one for carbon wrapping the B pillars too as I'm sure there are a few that have marks on theirs and might want to do them in black?
