I've bought some Silvo, it was next to the brasso and is made by the same people and is for aluminum.

I don't think there are any major scratches just the stuff you can see in the photo. I'll take some more before and after shots before I do it

What shall I do about the suspension section and the chips and scratches in that? Its not polished.

Maybe dismantle the back end and either polish it up or paint it again the same colour. You can get it colour matched at your local autopaint place, they should be able to mix it into rattle cans for you if you don't have a compressor to use an air gun. Not sure if powder coating will be able to colour match.

ok cheers, I have started polishing one side and it does look considerably better but not sure if it will be enough to get it perfect without some proper brillo pads or something a bit stronger.

How can I get the original stickers off as they have shit on the edges under neath them and some are chipped?

Gil said he would make me new ones so.

Heat the stickers with a hairdryer, they'll come off easy...
