Volkswagen Golf mk1
Having previously been fully resprayed, the vehicle was in need of some refinishing to remove the bodyshop inflicted buffertrails and swirling before show season.
Masking marks and overspray:

Starting high on the roof.
Meanwhile, Matt from MH Services was fitting a Bluetooth handsfree phone kit and a Cooper S front bumper to my customers’ Cooper D.
NSF wing before:
NS door before/after:
Overspray spotted low down:
Light clusters before/after:
Moving onto the boot lid, lots of tricky curves and angles to navigate here; a timely process.

Outer edge completed as normal:
Rear screen was badly scratched. CarPro Ceriglass used via rotary to lessen the damage:
Far from perfect but a lot better:
End of day 1:
An early start and time to correct the rest of the bonnet:
OSF wing complete:
Once the machine work was complete, a thorough IPA wipedown was given to remove remaining polishing oils and protected with AMDetails’ AM Seal paint sealant.
Exterior black trim coated with G-Techniq C4. Britework with Jeffs Prime. Glass with 3M Glass.
