Fiberglass, body panels, valences. Also interior pieces like seats, dashes, etc

Paint was pretty full before but after a day (almost) with the polisher and working out how to use the damn thing to best effects ( speeds, pressure etc) it came up ok.

Pretty happy with it now

Looks awesome! I swear, red cars always respond the best to some elbow grease when detailing.

Reds are quite satisfying, especially because of how oxidised this was when I got it..

Does look better in person, looks deeper. It's funny that you don't realise how faded it was,

It's raining here at the moment and its nice that its just beads and runs off

Lol, that would be a serious problem. I was going to comment that it was sunny and hot here in Germany but we've got a bunch of thunderstorms now :/
