    Think this is one of the best threads of its kind that has been on the forum showing picture by picture the process of restoring a car
    Personally sometimes i get lost by the more concise technical explanation of doing thinks that i enjoy although it takes my a long time to understand and digest them
    This to me is a bit like the Sun and the Times one you look though and see things easily and the other is for when you have more time to delve into
    Derrick big thanks for doing this I am really enjoying it

    Fiddly time consuming jobs those, if you are like me though you actually enjoy working with all the smaller details like this.

    Good job.

    Hi Tim I've been using polishing mops on a bench grinder with different polishing soaps from course to fine, on difficult small areas a big pot of elbow grease and a cloth:lol::lol: when
    using the mops wheels you must wear a mask and goggles because you end up black it is very time consuming it can take a couple of days just to do the smallest of parts :rofl::rofl:

    throttle body before polishing:rofl::rofl:
