Now donating the duvet covers to the cause!!

Last few photos...

I installed one of the bluetooth handsfree units I was fiddling with the other day. The cables aren't long enough to put it under the armrests like I was planning, so it went between the ashtray and hvac instead



Back to Nicola last week for some final machine work and the ceramic coating. These are Nicola's pictures since her camera and lighting are much better than mine











Nicola is now accredited by Garage Therapy so their 3-year ceramic coating was used, along with the rest of their range.





The tyre dressing and decon shampoo will definitely be getting added to my detailing shelf in the near future



Covered up for a few days while I had a couple of days off



Collection day:









Finished

Amazing result, but then we wouldn't expect any less.

It would be somewhat appropriate to hear this playing on the car stereo as it departed:

Really enjoyable post seeing you rescue a lovely piece of machinery and restore it to as near to perfect as can be. Thanks MJ
