Postby Mickymoe » Tue Jun 05, 2012 11:46 pm

Well not highly modified or to the standard of most on this site, but im just getting started!

(Taken from another site)
After a long search i finally found the car i wanted. Travelled to dublin to get a low kilometered unabused, compeletely standard (bar an alarm system with remote start) Altezza. Got it about a week and a half ago and havnt got round to doing much as been up to my eyes busy :|


So have to get it all re-registered, MOT'd, taxed etc and then the modding shall begin. Some crap pictures i have taken....

Image


And the headlights had faded (common on these altezzas) but nothing some wet and dry/polishing couldnt fix


Before..

Image


After..

Image


Did the fogs and rear boot lights also..


Before..

Image


After..

Image


Thats literally all i have done! Plan on getting stuck in come this weekend and will get better pics and keep this wee thread going as i have a few plans for her :D


P.s the wee saxo will be up for sale once i get this on the road ;)

Cheers lads

Used 1200 wet wet&dry as mine were bad then 2000 grit then 2500. Then cutting compound, a medium abrasive polish and finished off with finishing polish. Very happy with results :)

I found the link to a guide on here somewhere
