    • "Rockets on the road again, wearing shiny clothes again"   Used most of last week, whilst the family Cadillac was in for a wheel bearing. Running and driving great.
    • 4 days to complete. That's just the first level of cover. There's an intermediate and a high end coating aswell.    It was done at the Steading Car Valet an Detailing by a Diamas trained tech. 
    • Carefully smashed my head into the steering wheel and hammered the dash earlier today, after three attempts at a hot start with cut out and misfires.    Back to square one. Again.
    • I checked the headlight switch and noticed the head lamp adjusters funny the things you don't notice not driving the car in 4 years!
    • All I can say is I feel your pain/anger/frustration. My VR has not long since been back from having paint work/rust treated removed etc done, Merc vent in front wing (I supplied) rear boot badge delete and smooth and front wings, bonnet and boot painted.. Now before car went in the bloke said he would remove rear screen to treat rust problem at the time of badge delete, front wing off to cut hole and weld in vent. The list goes on but this is to name just a few. Now whilst all this was being done I called over on a whim to see that the boot had been painted without the rear screen having been removed and the d=ck had even masked round the number plate (wtf) and the boot still had 2 tiny dints in which he didn't sort before painting. On looking further the front wing hadn't been taken off and the hole for the vent and vent had been welded in place with it still in situ, as I can now see this as there is rust and the original white paint on the inside of the vent. Further more after he had painted the bonnet there had obviously been a reaction/silicones in the paint as there were a few tiny pot marks? He said these were stone chips.? Stones chips I asked? He said you never said sort the stone chips, just paint the bonnet... Who paints something without sorting it out beforehand? Anyhoo on final finish of all paint work etc I go to pick car up to find runs in the lacquer and sanding marks under the paintwork to which he said, I think you're being a bit picky.... The bloke is a complete tool.. Thing is though he restores Splitscreen campers and the like and that's his business. With the work he did on my VR its a wonder he's got a business....
