                        • How to Shine a Gazelle

                          So, we were recently called to work on a helicopter to 'lift' the finish of it's paintwork. This involved a two-stage machine polishing process which we then sealed with a Boeing approved ceramic coating called SystemX Max.

                          This is one of the biggest tasks I have undertaken, taking two people three days to complete, but I can confidently say that it was massively rewarding at the end. This pearlescent coloured Gazelle boasted lots of gloss and looked fantastic by the time we finished. Absolutely loved this one.
