Turtle wax colour magic.


Those of you unlucky enough to talk to me at gaydon will know just how unhappy i am/was with the cabbys paint.

By advice from my sprayer i bought the product and today seeing as its a comfortable night i thought id have a go with an initial coating before i take it down to him for a mopping.

those that remember me pointing out the minor scratches on the rear OS, et you can't find them now.


Lovely before and after, top treated, bottom original

And i now have red handles again :clapping

And all this is just the first coats, i'm confident things can't only go redder.

"Colour Magic" has been around for a long time and I have had great results with it in the past: I remember transforming a black MG Metro I once had :cool

It's the Turtle Wax or T-Cut colour. I have both, and I've tried both. I've got to be honest and say I can't remember which one produced better results (there was a subtle difference).

This stuff did actually reduce the appearance of my lacquer scratches which aren't actually scratches - it's the lacquer starting to fail/crack on the tops of my wings. Amazing it actually did anything at all, considering these are base-layer deep. Certainly for minor imperfections, I'd try this stuff first and see if you're still fussed about how things look afterwards.

Important to note that you don't need a precise colour match - there's basically a light and a dark version in some primary colours - just choose as per the instructions. It's a wipe on, let it dry and wipe off - even the dark red variant shows up like a pink haze until you polish it off. Best done in warm weather, which means you've got about 7 days left :laughing2
