The long panel, you can see exactly how bad the paint has got here.

Fine wire wool and cheap tescos car polish, trying to get the worst of the rust off by hand. Not much fun!

Calling in the big guns. Cousin Scott saw me struggling to do this by hand this weekend, and brought some of his car detailing toys along.

Massive improvement! Scott knows his stuff when it comes to paint correction. We only spent a couple of hours on it with the polisher, and basically did one pass with it. The paint is too thin to do much more than that. It's still a beat up rusty and dented commercial vehicle, and no amount of polishing can hide that, but it looks a lot better now!
