On another note, Im having the car raised this Friday. The GTP rear springs are going back in. The front end will also be getting new springs and matched in height if needed. New bearings also going in at the same time. Then everything re-aligned and straightened out. Overall it should end up higher by about another inch all around. Hopefully helping me out at shopping centre ramps.

Right oh! Spent last couple of nights working on gettin my boot and bonnet to look like this. How'd I go? It's smoother then ever, and I reckon it's close to being as smooth as Big Johns GT. I'm just getting ready for the KRC show next weekend, can't wait to show her again

Hi James,

What polish do you use to get your car looking like that? Did You clay bar it first or did ou just polish it? Looks great mate and Please show us a photo when it is finished. Unfortunatly I will not be at Keilor as I have booked 4 months ago to go to Flemington on the day to the Shannons car show.

Keep up the hard work because I have been cleaning my car for the last 2 weeks.

Cheers

Big John

I used Maguiers Scratch X Remover 1st, the maguiers Tech Wax 2.0, and repeated twice, the gave it 3 or 4 coats of Maguiers quick wax.

Once I do the rest of the car I'll take some more crappy iPhone pics

Very nice James, is that an effect on the pictures or just the lighting?

Hey James,
Just a quick tip bud. You cant layer synthetic waxes. Tech wax 2.0 has mild cleaning agents in it so each time you apply over another coat you are effectivley removing the last coat, so save ya product bro.
Looks the shizzle though mate and same to you Tony, Love the graveyard location mate.
Cheers
