1992 CLX - Now with added shinyness!

Rather than doing what I should've been (i.e. fixing the Swedish hulk slowly dissolving on the drive!), I took advantage of the decent weather to clean the living daylights out of the Panda.

The pain was rather less-than-perfect before - lots of stains and badness. Most (not all) of those have come out - and it's now black, rather than grey!







Well pleased. And as we all know, cars are always faster when clean

Anyone else had a cleaning session?

Thumbs up Re: 1992 CLX - Now with added shinyness!

Very nice! Now get some Autoglym bumper and trim gel on...!

It's a nice feeling, though, isn't it, when you bring the paintwork back to life...?

That's quite a transformation! Nice work

Does feel great - though it getting dirty again is always a little disappointing haha!

I'll have a look at the gel you mentioned, too.

Black does respond well to a good polish doesn't it.

I can vouch for the Autoglym trim gel, it's good stuff!
