How Ross Used Our Products
My Honda Civic Type-R EP3 (2002)
Ultimate cleaning. All wheels removed for brake, calliper and under arch cleaning. Metal work behind discs painted black and callipers red.
Tried everything on alloy wheels and in the end my brother discovered oven cleaner to be the best (don't leave on the wheel to long).
Bodywork has been hand washed, chamois leathered T-Cut colour restorer and Asda Polish. Additionally touch up paint added to any viable marks and t-cut down to blend. Yet to apply 2 stage Guard-X protection as well as acid rain protector and Bird Muck protector.
A tip I will share and can be used on new or old paint which in 8 years of doing has never caused any damage is furniture polish - spray onto lint free cloth or mitt and wipe round the car after it has been washed and chamois. Ultimate Shine.
Wheels - been minted until I can afford to get them dipped and sprayed.
Brakes - rear of brakes/discs cleaned an dremel then painted black, calipers dremel to remove rust painted and decals added.
Engine Bay - cleaned, rocker cover painted, custom air intake for better cooling. White LED strip light fitted to underside of bonnet via on/off switch for lighting up engine if break down in the dark.
Bodywork - touch-up, scratch remover, t-cut, waxed, door/window rubbers cleaned out, door trims, boot trim spotless.
