    White 850R Detailed

    The 850 has been with Ben at Pro Reflect this past week for a full paint correction detail. He dropped it back to me this morning.

    About 4 weeks ago both sides were painted. Still got plenty to do (I'll update the project thread shortly), but it's really taking shape now.

    Thanks mate. Yes they are the US style indicators, I like them, and they're something different. I can't remember off the top of my head where I got them, I'll dig out a link.

    Looks good a massive improvement from how it was when you bought it.

    I'd have gone with anthracite wheels, haven't you got a set of 850 mats? Are they even still available from Volvo.

    Anthracite has been done to death now. I don't feel anthracite would have fitted in with the car's overall look, the aim with this one is to keep it as bright and fresh looking as possible.

    Mats aren't available from Volvo anymore, but I do have a brand new set in the garage to go in. Managed to get them from Ebay, still in the plastic wrapper! Embossed with Volvo though, not 850.

    No i agree with the wheels, keep them silver imo. They look much cleaner and fresher imo

    That is MINT mate nice I'd like my T5 done and the C70 where pratts have driven into them in Tescos car park and then legged it without leaving a note

    I have paint scrapes on the bumpers on BOTH cars from old ladies about 80 driving Pikey Range Rovers WAAAAAY too big for their little purple rinse heads to manage!

    What do Pro Reflect do and whats the dosh like on small jobs? Got a bit of blistering on the V70 too, not far from me.

    cheers
