Gorgeous. Cost of it all? Both the repair work and detailing combined?

Looks naked without the decals!

You can't beat a proper detail clean though, the results are truly satisfying

Post by GreySilver Beast » Fri May 17, 2019 12:22 pm

The Stripes were removed as they were starting to look shabby :( , mainly caused by the flight path from Gatwick Airport as they circle above Horsham :!: :!:

A whole 9 Stickers were also removed off the car :shock: , which I mainly did while Neil was trying to remove the decals off the Bonnet and Roof #-o

Left the Japfest 2014 Top Gear Stickers on either side of the car :twisted: and the Pipercross one under the Bonnet to remind Toyota every time the car is Serviced :lol:

So the total bill including Hotel, Fuel, Food and Drink was = £497.96 =D> =D> =D> =D>

It would be a damsite more in West Sussex or Surrey :!: :!: :!: :!:

That's crazy cheap! The local guy that I go to for detail cleaning was gonna charge £450 to ceramic coat my MX-5 (very steep considering there's very little car to actually coat)

I liked the body stripes, only ever seen one other 86 with them but I'll admit the car looks very sleek without.
