Took the car back to the bodyshop yesterday as I wern't happy with a couple of area's that hadn't been buffed up properly. I also had a moan about swirl marks, visable when freshly polished. They did the buffing there and then and then Sean the owner gave me a bottle of stuff called Finesse made by 3M. Its a cutting polish similar to T-Cut but with no amonia. The stuff is fanstastic, without much elbow grease I had the whole car gleaming in an hour and no swirl marks anywhere. Here's the pic's:

Dont look at the wheels or the windows, I didn't get that far with the cleaning!

Looks fantastic mate, I wish my car was that pristine. Only suggestion I can make is remove the headlight covers, but thats just me...

Looks fantastic Ste (y), the little fiesta in the pics isnt looking as healthy I must say...

PS. I think I would remove the front covers/masks too "maybe keep them for Halloween" :ihih:

Cheers m8, the reg is a private plate, my car was originally on a V plate (2000). Bought it from DVLA website approx 18 months ago for ?ú250 which includes the ?ú80 transfer fee, bargain I thought! It did cost me an extra ?ú25 to keep the the reg as DVLA only hold them on retention for you for 12 months, so you have to pay ?ú25/year to keep it until you transfer it onto a taxed, mot and insured vehicle. I like the blueflame m8, I like its sound on tickover and its sound as you floor the car. Best bit about the blueflame though is it quietens down at higher rev's so on motorways there no droning noise from the exhaust.

Will post some more pic's up tomorrow as I've finished refitting the interior.

Cheers
