    Phone camera snap, overnight rain drops on a freshly detailed (a few days ago) NHB bonnet.

    The rest errrmmm ... I never finished :Whistle:

    Considering this was my first ever proper detail I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

    I spent 3 hours on the bonnet and 2 hours on the whole of the near side but did all of the stages right up to waxing as I knew I wouldn't be able to do the whole car.

    You should have seen what I had to work with. I don't think this thing had even seen a decent wash for a long long while, forget being detailed ! LOL

    I'll try and do a full thread on it soon.

    @Nels this thing is in very very poor condition. It was so bad that at first I thought I would need a full respray to get it looking good again.

    Pop over guys, I'll do you some nice curry instead of Pizza ! :Smile:

    If I can get the whole car done before I go in for my operation (now likely mid October) I'd be over the moon. The worst is done, that was the bonnet, the rest won't take us long.
