Devil is in the detail(ing)

Post by Red roof » Tue Aug 28, 2018 5:14 pm

Don’t usually post much on here but I can’t really help it as I am pretty well pleased with myself, though also considerably lighter in the wallet.
After years of just rumbling along I have treated my Daytona Avant to serious tlc and fallen in love with her all over again.
She went for her MOT and annual service, a bit daft considering she’s only done 230miles since last year but still, I had some oil knocking around that needed using. Whilst there the garage boys fitted a Radtech oil cooler and JHM pipes, changed one of the upper arms after an advisory last year and replaced the faulty parking sensors.
After that she was delivered to a detailing place across the road from the garage and treated to a full paint correction, interior and engine bay detailing, wheel refurbishment, and a 7 year Opti Coat protection over the top. Prior to the professional treatment I changed the wing mirror mounts and the door blades (after paint matching).
The car is now spanking and even though it has cost a fair bit, am over the moon. I brought her home last night and this morning I cleared all the faults with VCDS after issues with the TPMS.
Up until recently I was toying with the idea of selling her because we’ve bought a 2016 Disco 4 and the Avant wasn’t being used much because the Disco is far better suited to the roads round here but now I am looking for somewhere to store the Avant locally to keep a hold of her.
Anyway, enough patter, I’ll let the pics do the talking.
Cheers

Looks stunning but you need to use it! I love looking at mine when it's clean but the real pleasure is from driving it!

I know! But the roads round here are awful! I’ve got a couple of runs planned for work courses so I’d expect more than last year’s mileage!

Looks amazing, I was torn between black and grey when I was looking. I agree with the above though, they look amazing but drive even better, sack off the disco and get the foot down!

Cheers :thumbs:

Looking fantastic. I'd be tempted to replace the rusty bolts along the slam panel just to finish it off.

I was just starting to think the same. Need part numbers though!

Could always buy some bilt hamber detox c, mix a bowl full and chuck them in, unless they have a coating from new?
