Who did the work Alex? Looks very good Wink


A local guy from Leigh. Comes out to your place of work and does it on site. Uses proper stuff to ensure lacquer isn't soft like these smart repair places.

I've asked him if I can let people know of his craftsmanship and he's happy for me to spread the word. He usually does work for mainly dealers but wants to get more into the domestic market.

His name is Simon Verstraeten and his Business is Rapid Finish. He's a one man band and I've seen other work he's done and always seems flawless.

Absolutely come along. The whole purpose of organising this was to just get people together and say hi. Given the time of year there was little expectation of people getting their p&j out, so come along in what ever you have. If I'm not mistaken have I see you post pics up of a McLaren?

great - subject to no last minute demands from the wife - I'll be there



one of the joys of owning a plastic car - is that it can come out to play in the rain.

Finished giving it a clean using tomorrow as an excuse. On sunny days when it's clean, GT Silver is a lovely colour.

Mine was covered in road grime and foam insulation dust from some stuff I did at home earlier in the week. I hadn't washed it for a month Sad , but now back to normal.
