My next Slice Article

Post by PoshTwit » Mon Aug 17, 2015 4:01 pm

Hello folks - apologies for the brief break in service - been far too busy to put pen to paper!!

I am pondering my article for the next edition of Slice (as kindly prompted by Terry at Curborough) and believe we have got as far through the process as protecting our now polished, cleansed or glazed finish. I therefore plan to start firing some ideas around about waxes, sealants and the differences between them....

..... Unless the populous can offer any suggestions on what they would rather see?

Hi,

Yes, protection of the hard-won finish would certainly be of interest.

Dave Speed is currently painting my Scim, so from a selfish perspective, any information on how to protect a new paint job would be great. I'm interested in how to make new 2-pack paint hold its finish and last as well as possible on a car that's used regularly, including going out and getting wet from time to time.

Hi Posh, preserving a good finish is the one I'd love, totally inappropriate for the "Rat look Cruisin' Coupe"!

As fer cone rash, it's inevitable on "The Arsenal Zimmer", I'm surprised it wasn't applied from the off. Oh an' there'll be plenty more o' those an' all, offs that is. Regards, Crusty.
