Default Imola S50

Last weekend we drove up from Cornwall to get my Coupe near Manchester. I will post some pics and update the thread but its just so lovely getting back into a coupe. (the faint smell of crayons)

I have been so busy recently with work but managed to snap a few quick pics over the weekend.

Car looks great - and that would be a nice driveway too!

Just gave the car a much needed detail, full clay, swirl removal and wax. Applied rubber treatment to all of the door sills/sunroof and windows
I tried zymol rouge wax and I must say VERY impressed on how much depth it adds to the paint!


Before






After


Sorry about the dirty tires and the boot of the car have a blanket dog down the dogs.
Next on the list interior/engine over the weekend (still have some leather dye from my old coupe so will be fixing a few imperfections on the interior :)


Really enjoying the car so far, also sorted out a few small things such as a very faint constant squeaking(caused pulley bearings) have a badge refurbishment kit on its way from never done, new wipers fitted.


Foolishly I should have taken more before and after pictures. Also I have not done any editing to the pictures posted, the rouge wax seriously adds so much depth!

Thanks Indy, the red wax was http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=1020662656017 from the US, much cheaper than from any place in the UK

Also I should have taken all the pictures on the same day in the same place as its chucking it down today and much darker than than the previous pics
