Concours Detailing Day 3 of 5

Oh man, my body hurts! My arms, legs back and even hands and wrists! I even came down with a headache this afternoon which cut the day short.

It was only this afternoon that I realised that I was quite far behind time. The only paintwork I had completed was the roof, sunroof, the rear passenger quarter panel, both passenger doors, both C pillars and the section between the rood and doors. What's remaining is the driver side doors (right side), hood, boot, driver side rear quarter panel and both front quarter panels. Add to that the interior and that's a lot of work to do in 2 days! I may have to catch up during the week.

Anyway, I found a problem area where the previous owner mush have had issues with the paint above the driver side doors. The paint had completely gone, so I taped it up so I didn't make it any worse and polished around it.

As promised, a couple of photos of the roof polishing job. This is not quite the final product since it still needs some sealant and wax.

The money shot.

Today was a family breakfast in the morning so I started late and I came down with a headache in the afternoon so I finished up early. All in all, a total of 5 hours. Pathetic.
