stains and etching from bugs sometimes need more than just a wash to remove them.

We found the paintwork to be badly scratched, there was also some fallout, tree sap, bird droppings and bug stains that had etched the paintwork, although none of it was too bad.

Vigorous use of a heavy duty clay bar was able to remove most of the contaminants. Clay lubricant is actually a light wax and this is why the car looks reasonably shiny in the above photo, but you can clearly see the extent of the scratches.

The next stage was start buffing the car. Unfortunately we were without a camera and Martin couldn't be around for the whole of the two days that we worked on the car, so there are no pictures of the work being carried out. For photos and explanations of our buffing process and techniques, please see the following articles:- The Green Bonnet - Paintwork Restoration.

It's results that count, so I'll let the photos speak for them self...
