As title guys, i've inherited my sons old (5 months) phone with a camera, so thought id have a go at putting few pictures up, I'm 60 and normally don't go in for bling, but a young lad (LOL bout 30) who lives just down the road from me has an evo 8 which must have been a show car at some point because under the bonnet it looks fantastic, known since christmas last year i was coming back to evo ownership, so started collecting bits, bought car in may, finally got round to fitting bits

You need autosol and a cloth its an abrasive metal polish, use plenty and rig up your drill with a buffing wheel

finally given up on polishing,been at it for 5hrs with buffing wheel on battery drill along with t-cut metal polish, knackered and not much difference TBH, so plan B let a grown up have a go or get it painted either blue or red, what do you guys reckon ?
