Some B!tch scratched my car with a knife down to the white primer. I got some paint mixed from Halfrauds, washed the scratch, Masking taped it all up and built the scratch up with the paint.
I then used some wet-wet and dry paper to smooth the high points back, then T cutted like crazy.

The finished result is not perfect but ALOT better than what it was

a) Take her out for a meal
b) Buy her some flowers or
c) Cram it in her ass. Dry.
Then she'll know you do!

any tips for getting cream leather to come clean

Leather Cleaning should be done using a leather cleaning solution (or lux flakes, mild soap)-not washing up liquid. Work in the soap gently but firmly using a soft nailbrush , then wiping off with wet towel. Avoid spot rubbing. Repeat if necessary once the leather has dried(not before as damp softens pigment coating causing it to peel.Remember to always apply a leather conditioner once you've cleaned the seats.

Cheers
Ray.

thanks ray thats a great guide , also explains a few things very well indeed , like the differance between a polish and a wax .
i think halfords are going to do very well out of me very shortly , my old se4 (god bless her ) shined like a good un as i used lots of auto glym polish on her , but i havnt really had a chance with my now calibra to get her up to the same shineyness yet , hopfully santa will bring me some meguires stuff or some xmas money to go buy some with and i can find the bloody time and a dry day and polish away .
also loved the bit about spritzing with the disstilled water or cooled water for extra shine
