Hi guys, fairly new to this forum and i got my golf a couple of weeks ago. As i am a very avid valeter/detailer I had to paint correct it as soon as i got it!!

I'll let the pics do the talking!
















I've got some more aftershots that i took which i'll put online later.

Spread the detail over 2 days and had to dodge the rain which was a pain!
the colour looks immense now!

I have plans for the car so it wont be standard for long!

Comments?

Splendid work!

I've got a question thought. I noticed that the chrome "golf" lettering on your boot-lid is gone. How did you remove them whitout damaging the paint?
Hi, it couldn't be easier!!! use a hairdryer or heat gun (on a low heat) and just heat the badges up a bit then pull them off. you'll be left with the tape underneath but just use your nail to pick it off then just use a tar/glue remover to get the sticky off. You may need to give your bootlid a quick polish if the paint has faded slightly.

Easy and effective mod :)
