    I think estate versions often look nicer. but that is just me. I kept looking at them when I bought my Leon even though I was supposed to go smaller

    Carl, golf looks lovely bud. Cannot wait to sort mine once I have finished throwing crap out the front, no point when I will just cover it in dust. No rush either, got to keep myself busy

    So continued with the cleaning side of it...



    So inside the rear arches and the nasty rusted discs, even though itís not that old, so decided to tidy it up.



    Discs and surrounding masked or covered, wire wheel and then etch primer, and then VHT paint.



    Gave it a couple of coats of primer and then base, loads said you donít need to cover discs but I preferred to do majority, as it could transfer on to the pads, little bits maybe, but didnít take any chances.




    All finished and cleaned inside the rear arch, it also has the carpet like wells, so hovered those.

    Couldnít put the wheels back in without giving them some attention either, so they weíre throughly cleaned, clay baríd and polished before sealing them, and then refitted.



    Back to how they should be haha






    Next.... need to do the same on the front

    Front now done too

    While the wheels were off I did inside the arches as well, wonít be like this for long once it gets used, but hey it maybe easier to clean next time around now itís treated.






    So again while the wheels were off I throughly cleaned them, clay baríd, polished and sealed. Will get them freshly powder coated though in the near future as well.

    Got to be as clean on the inside as the outside in my opinion



    Wheels fitted back on and all painted, cleaned and ready to get dirty again





    Next job is to clay bar the car ready for a machine polish and then some ceramic coating, which I plan to do this week, provided itís not too sunny.

    I also have a couple of things that have been delivered to try and fit as well, nothing major just some subtle changes

    Forgot to update this...

    So the car was cleaned, decontaminated and clay baríd prior...

    I had not long cleaned it and removed tar spots and fall out remover, car was used for a couple of short journeys and left outside the rest of the time, so it just shows what crap gets on it just sitting there...





    Autobrite Direct Purple Rain doing its magic, used a whole bottle on the car

    After all this and the clay bar process I proceeded to machine polish it...






    After that itís come up okay, couple of scratches a little too deep to polish out, so going to have a go with a mixture of ChipEx and Halford chip repair kit, to touch in some bits before the next stage...



    Tucked away in the garage to protect it...



    The next part is to touch in the paint chips etc... then it will be panel wiped and then Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light applied, again garages for it to cure and then a top coat of Gtechniq Evo v2 as well.

    I also have Gtechniq glass sealant and interior fabric protecter as well, but need to give the interior a going over first before that

    Also busy drawing on my iPad Pro, if you donít follow me on Instagram or friends on Facebook then you may not have seen them, but this is one I did of my Golf.



    I also did one for a YouTuber (CalvinsCarDiaryís) and he subsequently posted it on his Instagram so did get a few more requests to do others as well, so kept me occupied.



    Also did a collection of cars from another Youtuber that they have rebuilt as well, Goonzquad.


    These guys are awesome and enjoy the content they make, so was blown away after they have asked me to do one of the current build they are doing at the moment, a Jeep Grand Cherokee Track Hawk, which are over 700bhp for an SUV


    Go check out my Instagram @n77jones if you want to have a look at any others or if you want to give me a follow...

    May not be any more once Iím back at work, but quite addicted doing them at the moment
