Quick detail of nightfire vvc

Post by Maxfly » Tue Nov 07, 2017 6:53 pm

I say quick but still took me 3 hours, although I am horrendously slow at detailing. After a quick wipe over with quik detailer I went over the whole car with megs compound and paid more attention to the worst areas - bumper had cloudiness in the middle and winds are marked from a liquid spill of, I suspect brake fluid. Once buffed off I used dodo juice purple haze. I know it's for darker coloured cars but hey it was in the cupboard and I like it for ease of use. Results below, very pleased as paint was flat and had no depth to it at all. I could have spent much longer on it but time as always is in short supply.

Cheers :Daye it really is a cracking colour but tbh a lot of Rovers colours are the more you look at them and compare to other makers ranges of the time. 8-)
Nightfire and it's replacement Firefrost are definitely right up on my list of favorite colours 👍

Looks fantastic! I would love to have the time and enthusiasm to do mine but living down a farm track in winter it’s not worth the effort!

I love this car, just so smart.

Maybe some genuine Rover mud flaps or GTi spats colour coded on the rear?

Thanks! Those are both good ideas actually, think I will keep an eye out for them. Had thought about mudflaps but not the spats.

Just looking at this again and i think i'm going to have to treat myself to a bit of time with the car giving it a clean and taking some photos. That way when it is covered in mud i can look back and remember what it looks like underneath!

Good idea lol.
I like a manky car now and again, mine was absolutely howlin after 300 odd mile on heavily salted roads, couldn't even make out the rear number page. A wash today and good hose out of the arches to get rid of the metal eating crap got her clean again
