Unfortunately this isn't a full write up (yet) as I have misplaced the memory card with the first part of the detail on (washing stages), so I only have a few pics of the correction work and a few quick 'afters' to show people how Desire looks on black.

Please excuse the current state of my unit also - most of the walls are now painted, but the storage units aren't in yet and I need to hang a few banners, paint the floor and get the electrics all sorted out - which should all be progressed in the coming week.

So, first up, a few pics from the correction stage - the paint was pretty heavily swirled and littered with RDS. However, I completely unexpected just how soft the paint would be, with a lot of combinations leaving very heavy marring and hologramming in place. After trying a LOT of combinations, I settled on Megs 105 on a Polishing Pad, followed by 205 on a Finishing Pad, which worked a treat:

I called in my wheels and tyre specialist to work her magic:

She also kindly bought some cheap heating (will do for now):

AF Revive was used on the plastic trim:

It adds quite a bit of colour!!

To finish up, after discussing options at length with my customer, we opted for Auto Finesse's Desire, to see how it holds up over Winter and how it looks on metallic black:

and now, the afters...

Thanks for reading and apologies once again for the partial write up and the state of my unit at the moment :)

Thanks,

If only you were nearer i would be disposing of my hard earned to you sir!
Well I have insurance soon to drive any car up to £100k... so I could always pick her up for you. :)

I'm going a bit OTT for a part time business, but I'd rather do it properly, if I'm going to do it at all...

Nice work as usual! How do you find the durability of the AF revive?
It's been good - not as good as something like GTechniq C4, but as something which is so cheap, I am seeing 3-4 weeks on external plastics.

It's lasted REALLY well on my door rubbers though - 3-4 months and its still there
