Don't do anything too drastic to that Patch - Looks a nice one thumb .......Personally I'd leave LE's as LE's but each to their own.....
Where did you get the Red badge from?

Patch, basically you will be taking a perfectly good LE, removing all the parts that make it an LE and then replacing them with bits from the halfords parts bin (engine excepted).

Why the hell didn't you just buy a late speed six and go from there.

sorry for having an opinion.. smile Actually I am not sorry. Should have made the clear.

as for my comments being worthless, thats what this car will be once you have removed everything, modified it horrendously and then blown the engine to bits trying to get an extra 300bhp through the front wheels.

Shame because you have done a good job of cleaning and polishing it. I guess the body will be worth something to someone (a scrap yard maybe) smile

I must admit I dont think you're the only person on this forum who feels like this Sugerbear, me included. It's a real waste, however this is now Patch's car so he can and will do what he wants with it.

Patch, despite me wishing someone bought your car before you wink I'll look forward to seing the outcome. Good luck with it all smile

Good job on the paintwork Phil. Silver is a nightmare to shine. It was a mission to get my old silver Bravo looking like it had a shine on it, so I know how much effort has to go in to get it looking 'just so'.

FYI, there was a sprint blue coop at SpaItalia which had Stilo Blades on. I'll dig out the piccy when I've been through them all for you. I'm a fan of the blades but then I am biased as I have them on my Stilo wink

Be interesting to see what you do with it over the coming months.

Cheers Insy, yea, please, get those pics up ASAP. I'm in two minds at present if they are the look I'm after so the more pics the merrier. smile

Did you beat Proccy's time around the track?

Phil, why not upload a stock photo of a blade (straight on image) and ask Keyjay to update the wheel application programme. That way you'll be able to play around to help you decide.

I think the Stilo alloys look good. They have the simplicity of a 5 spoke alloy yet they have a sharpness of an Ultraleggera.

Good luck on this project Patch, you did a good job detailing this one again. What's the cutting factor of the yellow and blue 3M pads? I work with Lake country and there yellow= heaviest cutting and Blue = final finishing.

On the wheels: Not my cup of tea, but it's your car and you should do with it what you want (same with the LE story).

Oh I will laugh

Cheers Martijn - The yellow is really a fine pad that can be used to remove swirling, I find good results with this on the coop lacquer coat and find that it reduces the needs to spend so much time finishing (refining the lacquer cut). The Blue is a finishing pad.

I have recently got hold of some 'hexlogic pads' and I will be looking for a coop with some real heavy swirling and RDS to test these on.

Yeah the Hexlogic ones are from Chemical Guys, they use the same colourcoding as Lake Country does. (so go for orange, white, and black / light green maybe). More to discuss in the detailing topic maybe wink
