Gs450h paint correction

Recommended Posts

After seeing @Farquis shining Gs450h is always planned on getting my car corrected

they (autobrite) had it this week for three days, £280, and what was a car made up of more of swirls than I remember seeing, and multiplying every second look, was transformed into a rather nice clean car

two stage polish, some manual effort involved where paint has been repaired and was too hard for machining, and a water based ceramic coating

then within hours, my neighbours building work took effect, the car is now covered, or as I am now pretending, covert.

Very pleased, will be interesting to see what the ceramic coating does and how long it lasts. I'm told I can wax it, but in theory it just needs a wash and dry when cleaning it

its just dust, lots and lots and lots of dust:wacko:

Hi Mike, apologies, Ive not been on the forums too much at the minute due to some personal issues.

 

i've not washed it yet, now the weather is getting better I may do this weekend.

luckily today some ran into the back of me (whilst i was stationery), so I'll need to wash off some of the muck to view the damage.

Yes sadly, I'm now in a 17 plate cls350d. Awful car. Better than mine I know, but it's a well styled tractor.  Roll on Friday when I'll get mine back.

i did give it a quick clean a couple of weeks back, to be honest I think a lot of the coating has gone however.

I, not too much, just bumper, but £100 a day car hire, and four days of body shop, it won't be cheap for the insurance. And being hit whilst stationary, it pushed my premium up by £92. Good old insurance.

See thats where the problem lies. 

You should have told them you were moving and they probably would have refunded you £92 lol

multiple insurance companies have told me that being hit, increases your chances (statistically) of going on to have an accident.

having said that, I then don't understand why the third party at fault in the first incident, should therefore not be liable for any future accidents in which I'm in!?

I always ask "by how much" and is it actually a significant difference i.e. p-values being less than 0.05. 

Funnily enough they never seem to have that data
