thanks mate, should be finished tomorrow, white gauges have to go, and must show k's only, just got a complete speedo cluster european 300k, its now fitted, new screen gets fitted tomorrow, had a crack in it, hood has to be replaced with original, man I could tell you some story's, with me going through it in NSW means no one else has to, as mine has set the standard for our state, you wouldn't beleive what we have had to do for RAWS.
And beleive me RAWS is bullshit, 100K and climbing and we ain't finished, seems our North and South cousins are not required to go through the same process, so you can still get some sh** through other states, so after what we have gone through, its the same old story, upfwyg
(you pay for what you get), well not quite, you pay the same for s***, something, but when you don't have anything to compare it with you think its not bad, and thats another story
anyway off the soap box, I hate Jim Beam it makes me honest but pees off others

Kim,your so right about the roof at castle hill hothothothot oouucchh,had problems logging on past 24 hours but finally got through,bought some of that BOWDENS WAX its ok but much prefer FLASH,it says you have to put it on then take it off when its wet and from what they say you have to put it on in a horizontal direction,I did all that and found it was OK ,even did it in front of Greg M at corvette conversions just for an unbiased appraissal(dammstill cant spell for sh.t).looking forward to that stuff from adams,BTW my last two cars I polished and took all swirl marks out of and scratches was a BLACK PAJERO and a FORD TERRITORY, BOTH TOOK TWO DAYS

yeah its a pretty good product, but far to hard to use, and you can only do a panel at a time, you can't run a business using a product thats hard work you waste to much time
were is greg in Blacktown,

thanks, just brought a random orbital buff, gave it a quick polish this arvo, its a machine anyone can use, yep used Adam's polish and a bit of swirl remover, now looks even better than ever and I haven't put the wax on yet, gunna do it all again next week, got a couple of small scratches I wan't gone, then from clay bar through to wax, the machine makes it so quick, I could post a pic but you probaly wouldn't note the difference, I can
then I will have a couple of these :D

I have one of those too, but prob not as good as your version.

Clay barring is THE biggest eye-opener of all that I have ever experienced in paint care; It just did my head in when I did the Vette then Hog with a clay bar; AMAZING how much difference it can make! :o

That seems to have been a common over sight in their manufacturing process over there :-x
