Plans sound good, wouldnt t-cut it though.. get it machine polished instead.. if you are not confident doing it yourself most bodyshops will do it for a nominal fee

Is that a 4 disc changer on the dash there, at the bottom of the heater panel on the centre console?
They are just storage for cd's

Hence the quotation marks, I have a machine polisher and some meguires stuff to use. Never used it before, but there's a first time for everything :)

and yeah, I thought it was a CD changer at first, but its just individual storage for 4 CDs :laugh:

Go slow and dont press on too hard, if you get a set of bathroom scales and press down on them with your hands until its registering roughly 10lbs thats roughly the amount of pressure required. Havent used megs stuff myself but have heard good reports.

I wanted an SRI, but was looking for a 5 door, the only one I could find was either the 1.8 or 2.0, which would have been too much on insurance. Although the sports seats would have been nice, I'm more than happy with the 1.6 :)

Driving this compared to the corsa, I wonder how anybody can put up with the corsa but if its all you know then you just get on with it. Didn't realise what I was missing.

Small update too.

Used some Meg ultimate compound, pretty good results to be fair. Also stuck some Halfords polish on top just for now untill I give the whole car a good going over. Was just keen to see what sort of finish I could get from it.

Tried to do some of those before and after shots, didn't really work though. :laugh:

The first two are half and halfs, the right hand side done the left hand side not done. The bottom one is the finished product.
