Not bad for a standard un modded cat :LOL:(y) well done Spencer.
The short answer to your question is.....NEVER..............


Take it from another cougar owner who bought his cat for the same reason we all did, no intentions at all of modifying it, afterall, it's a damn good looking car as standard anyway. :confused:............but we just do it!

elbow grease for that one as it would take the paint of it,try a local hardware store for brushes as b&Q are expensive 8 quid each then i found some in my builders merchants for under £2 each plus grinding stone attachments my tbh is alrady polished but i stripped the maff down as not to damage sensor and this is what i came out like

Or better still, I found some really cheap brushes in a quid shop. Actually much better than the cheaper ones I bought a few days earlier in Focus.
I know what you mean though... decided to take up detailing so I can learn how to make the car look much better rather than just buy off the shelf polishes. Outlay this month has been in excess of £200!!
Next grooves for my machine are same as you've got up there ST200 throttle, lim/uim or ultimately an engine swap with an st200 or just a cylinder head plus some st200/220 wheels. Long may it continue.... lol, at least it proves we are alive dun't it? :D
