Perform a search for Farecla cutting compounds there are a couple of different grades. You obviously need something a bit more aggressive than T Cut.
Yea it most certainly does, the rear quarter panel on the drivers side of the jag looks like it's been repainted and straight lacquered and badly at that its horrible, I'll grab a pic of it tomorrow with a corresponding pic of the n/s rear quarter panel for comparison but I don't like it
Its better when its loaded

Working. Just finished my sixth 12 hour shift this week.

Looking forward to having two days off, doing sweet FA, playing xbox and binge watching Killing Eve.

Today I done gone and added yet another fan to the computer, when I first built it I was really impressed with how quiet it was but with overclocks, CPU and GPU processing and the warmer weather it now does a great job of impersonating a plane taking off.

The water cooling setup is calling me..

Done a little bit of gardening (we can't get rid of the rubbish or burn it atm)
lots of guitar learning
and lots of watching people doing gigs from home which usually involves cider! :lol: :cheers:

so this is the duller I think bodge respray side though you cant really see how shite it looks in the pic it does it alot more justice than its should
20200413_134504.jpg
And this is of the left side, you can tell its abit brighter than the right side but its alot better than the other side when you look at it in real

This is why I think it either needs repainting or some serious work on it to try give it some shine

Gardening here too recently. I'm absolutely fecked :lol:

My lovely wife was nice enough to take a photo while I was hard at work :roll:

20200410_170307.jpg

The stone border you can see wa completely overgrown with grass and weeds to the point you could barely make out the stones :shock:
Like a lazy tw@t I didn't touch it at all last year so that hasn't helped, I've promised myself to do it more often from now on!

What does annoy me is the large overgrowth you can see at the back isn't mine its the neighbours. They haven't touched that hedge at all that I've seen since we have lived here (+5 years)

is that motor for sale in pic, always fancied one of them... is it the gti model ?
