look on the first page for my plans and tell me what you think .
Yes they look very good mate, bit ambitious though you must have a lot of money

I would say just remove the side strips don't spray them gloss back, pain in the bum to put back on as well, you might bend them getting them off as well.

No harm in washing your car twice mate

What amp you got? i have a 2400 watt one

Re: 1PuntoCarl2's Progress thread!

I'll be keeping my eye on this thread, I have the exact same car

I have a few dents and scratches similar to yours, so keep up the progress with whatever you do to sort them out i'd be very interested.

Also, how much did you pick the bumpers up for mate?

i was actually considering removing the side strips, then completely flushing the boot, ie, debadging, de-wipering and fillin the boot lock hole.

yea lol, i guess i might aswell clean it with the products i have no if i can't get my hands on the 'good' stuff :P. then clean it again when i get my new cleaning goodies lol.

well atm i have 1 amp, just an alpine t222 i think it is, running the front speaker. and i should hopefulyl have in the post, a jbl gto 7001, to power the sub.

picked up my bumpers AND passenger wing for 100 quid, but then i payed 33 quid for all 3 items to be sent. so 133 in total, well worth it imo.

yea its a shame we have dents, just means we need to spend that little bit more . i hope you get yours out aswell.

Ye thats a good idea dont personalise it with your name though

Teseo blues are a nice colour, just hard to get bumpers for! Come up really well after a nice shining though!

Re: 1PuntoCarl2's Progress thread!

cleaned my car today:


i know some people on here aren't very keen on turtlewax products, but thats all i have atm.

used the 2 bucket method with turtlewax platinum car shampoo
and then waxed the car with turtlewax platinum car wax.
i didnt bother doing the wheels as i just have steelies.
only took about an hour.

i then hoovered inside and just made sure there was no streaks on the windows.

pics:
















noticed this scratch on the bonnet aswell.. pissed me off a bit...

Re: 1PuntoCarl2's Progress thread!

i still got loads of crap on the roof, cant manage to get it off, can you recomend anything?

and i also found loads of stone chips on the bonnet, all this is more work i need to do along with the passenger side dent and boot dent. . ahh well.. lol

but yea, i think it is quite a good clean considering it only took about an hour.. .

next on the list is to remove the dents. depending on how much it costs, or maybe tinted windows

Re: 1PuntoCarl2's Progress thread!

Looks nice, good luck with the mods.

Re: 1PuntoCarl2's Progress thread!

thanks for that mate.

yea colour coded are alot better, but mine look look a slight different colour to the bodywork. especially the pic of the back end, the rear bumper looks too dark compared to the boot.

do you have any pics of your sisters cc bumpers?
