Detailed NHB CTR

Spent all day yesterday giving the car a mini detail as it desperately needed it. My routine was as follows:

- 2 bucket wash (Chemical Guys Citrus Wash and Wax)
- Hand polish (2 coats of AG SRP)
- Poorboys Black Hole glaze (1 coat)
- FK1000P wax/sealant (2 coats on paintwork) (1 coat on alloys, lights, windows)
- Black plastics polished (AG Bumper Care)
- Tyres dressed (Chemical Guys New Look Trim Gel)

The car has serious swirling and all I've been able to do with the SRP and black hole is mask some of it and as you can see from the pictures it's worked. When the days are longer I'll be getting the rotary out for some correction (along with the clay bar).

Thanks for looking
















Managed to get my Parrot kit installed a few weeks ago and decided to put it where the heater seat switch would go



I also fitted my Spoon socks and earthing kit a while back so a quick snap of that was a must

I've been thinking for a while to get a hold of some Championship white FN2 alloys but a little unsure of exactly how they would look on a NHB FN2.

Are there any photoshoppers on the forum that would mind doing me a favour?

Also if I decide to go down this route what would be better? (in terms of cost and looks etc..)

a) Buy a second hand set of Championship white alloys and sell existing set on.

b) Get existing set fully refurbed and powdercoated in white.
