... well a whole tin of Turtlewax polish anyway. Had the quick spray wax in one hand and the tin of wax in the other, and though what the hell its a nice day use the slow wax. The day got real warm and I spend a good few hours sweating and regretting, but I got there in the end. Really highlights in a bad way where the grill has stone chips and some laquer peel in places, but as I'm prioritising on getting it running right before worrying about cosmetics.
And yes I did do the roof as well.

Marine blue metallic looks really quite 'pimp' close up in direct sunlight.
