Came on here for a quick look as saw you'd added pictures. Given the amount of info and the fact that I'm at work I'll have a look when I get home lol.

As for what's going on with the leader of the TTF. Don't get me going!!

Cheers, When I first bought it I thought about changing body panels but over time I have decided that I like the body panels the way they are. I actually bought the TT because I liked the iconic aesthetic of the vehicle's bodywork so why change major bits I thought.

Anyway, here are some WIP pics that I took at Coombe Abbey in my home city of Coventry :)

p.s. I'm not so bothered about the events argument on TTF. I just like to see a good verbal mosh-pit and sometimes step in for a ramble because I'm a bit mischievous. It's no biggy :)

Cheers guys I have been working hard on the shine. Being a black car it shows all the swirls. Quite annoying. I have tried several things so far:

- T-Cut Colour Fast Black Colour Polish Scratch Remover (to colour difficult scratches)
- 3M Imperial hand glaze (to fill compound scratched)
- Turtle wax ICE synthetic paste (for a gloss finish)
- Meguiars Ultimate quik wax spray (for a quick shine when time is a problem)

I have used these in different combinations on different occasions after taking some recommendations. However, it would be good to hear what everyone else is using.
