    Looking for an evo for 6K, what can i expect to get for my money?

    You won't pick up the best VI for 6k to be honest. Specifics to look out for would be rust. Around the inside of the rear arches, sills, floor pan etc. Rear diff - make sure the AYC has been maintained and works. With ignition on, the AYC dash light will come on, then go off when the engine is...

    Evo X Enhancement Detail

    I thought I'd share the pictures from this Evo X that was detailed a few months back, just before taking over the new workshop. This lancer was detailed for a local Evo and GTR specialist. The car is having one of their sticker packs fitted and the owner wanted the swirls and other little...

    Lancer Evolution VII GTA

    I had this pretty rare example in recently for a boarder line restoration. It's an Evo 7 GTA, being one of 22 imported from Japan. It was stolen from the owner 6 years ago. The thieves painted it red to disguise it, abused it round a field, ruining the gear box, suspension, brakes, various...

    Evolution VIII Detailed

    Haha, no, it won't. Just clean the plastics well with an all purpose cleaner, apply the dressing and buff away any excess after a short while.

    Just looking to see who's about on here these day ?? :)

    I sold mine ages ago. 5 years now actually. Wow, that went quickly. I still love them and get to detail quite a lot of them so I always pop back and see if anythings new :)

    Evolution VIII Detailed

    I use both products all the time, 303 is great for engine bays, window rubbers and bits like that but I prefer Revive for exterior plastics. 303 Aerospace is water based so doesn't last particularly well on the outside. I have an Evo VII GTA in at the moment so I can get some pictures to show...

    The exhaust was polished using #0000 wire wool and AF Mercury. That was the end of day 1. Day 2 saw us moving into another workshop to finish off the car. Outside it was looking pretty good. While we were waiting to get inside, this lovely Evo X got a little service wash. AF...

    Here's a nice car to share with you guys. I need another Evo in my life after this!!! This lovely Evo VIII was in with a local tuner or a few months having lots of upgrades.

    BMW E91 320d Touring

    This ins't a huge write up. Just a short enhancement detail on a nice BMW in a lovely colour :) The car didn't look to bad to begin with. Being owned by a true petrol head, it's looked after pretty well. A tiny bit of polish residue in a few gaps but nothing major. The owner...
