Back on the road again!  Quickly fitted some PH stickers and two press studs so I could use the doors again.  Then picked up my son from his work and took the scenic route there and back.

Seeing as the back end is now finished for the time being, I thought it was also a good time to fit the SEiGHT sticker @maurici made for me.

Used my Ryobi cordless buffer for the first time since I bought it in Dec 2019 :o

First washed and then clayed the bonnet.  Then I used some Fine 3M Perfect-It gelcoat polish and the buffer (which is not that great).  The result is good for a first attempt, but I think I should have maybe gotten the Medium polish instead.

Up early to get to Westfield to collect a newly purchased taller windscreen.  Made feel very welcome by @Westfield Parts Dept and got a private tour of the manufacturing side.  Unfortunately a quality control issue with the pillars meant I returned home with an incomplete package, but I suppose this gives me time to clean up the scuttle after removing the old windscreen.

Removing the sealant is quite the job.  Used Screwfix's No-Nonsense Sealant Remover to get the majority off, but it's the last 10% that takes 90% of the time 😕

Got a DAS6 polisher on the way now though so should be able to get it looking like new-ish again, ready for the new windscreen.

The 3M fine compound is excellent and getting the majority of fine to medium marks out, but I found, really does need a proper rotary polisher and good mops to do so. (Not tried medium, but the course is also superb).

 

Not tried them with a DA, you typically find you don’t get quite as much “cut” as a rotary, but you can often still do it, it just takes longer.
