Not the best picture of the badge but it does look miles better.
How have you achieved such a nice finish on the rear windows, it’s it tint or vinyl on the outside? Difficult to do?

There were already done when I bought the van but it’s definitely vinyl as there are a couple of scratches which let light through.
The voices in my head made me do it..............

That's a lush caddy you have there mate! How did you get the internal part of the headlights that colour? Are they brought like that or can you spray them?

Went to buy a trolley jack to do a long over due oil change, had some shell helix ultra sitting in the cupboard for weeks, finally got round to it today.

I'd never heard of claybars before being on this forum, passed the autoglym section and thought id give it ago, it's not cheap but what a difference it makes!

Shampoo
Dry
Claybar
Wax
Buff up

It's almost a mirror finish!
Well worth the effort ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Done? DONE????? caddy’s and done are not words that belong in the same sentence unless the words ‘for today’ follow it
