01 OctSuperlative Detailing : Triumph Spitfire Mk IV

Here’s a really nice example of a Mark 4 Spitfire on one of the internet’s car ‘detailing’ forums. What makes this one particularly interesting is the use of carbon fibre wrap on the dashboard and rear trimmings, that gives the car quite a distinct feel.
