Firtsly, what a pleasure it was to meet you
Craig, a top bloke who certainly knows what hes doing.

Great pics Craig, however they say the
camera never lies but on this occasion I don't believe its telling the whole
truth.

Im sure some of you will have seen Craigs
work at first hand and will agree, its amazing.

I couldn't believe the finish Craig was
able to get on the car, the Juke white seems to have a slight bit of
cream/yellow in it but even that seemed to have changed once Craig had given it
a couple of polishes and a seal.

Must say all this work was carried out on what must
have been one of the coldest Easter weekends ive ever known.

Cant thank you enough Craig, you certainly
have a special skill, not only from years of experience but because I believe
you love doing what you do, a real pleasure to watch you work mate.

well said JUKE5TER , its only right that a bloke should be praised when he has done such a brilliant job, and that the praise has come from the person that the job has been done for

thats great to hear mark , im glad you liked it , white is hard to get the wow factor as it reflects light differently to deep dark colours so i was really happy with the results , it looked crisp
