Definitely worth doing and looks to have worked a treat for you there.

I've fully detailed all of my cars for years but not done my Esprit. Not sure there's much point wasting the time or the clay bar on mine, given the state and number of different shades of yellow it is 😆

@tomcattom the front is absolutely peppered with stone chips and there’s many a paint fault. However it does look very presentable following that effort today.
It’s the nicest I’ve ever managed to get it and I only spent maybe an hour and half. It’s truly silky to feel.

au contraire...

 

When you wash a car, you think it is clean...BUT THEN you immediately rub the clay bar across it, and wonder how you missed all that dirt. 🙄

 

PLUS the finish is sooo smoooth after claying.

 

PS:  There is no need to use expen$ive sprays to lubricate the bar.  Just a second coating of soapy water works a treat to lubricate the bar.

Gotta do it @Barrykearley. You know it makes sense bud!

Think McLaren have extended used warranties to now cover up to 15 years old, where ten before. No brainer really and the 12C and the 650 are superb cars.

:hrhr: now I was thinking that. It’s not as clear cut as that since it’ll have to be listed as an asset of value. Yes I’ve checked 🤭

It’s a fantastic man maths dilemma

You buy it Barry. Sell it to me for half the price. I'll keep it in the garage then sell it back for same price as long as I get to drive it the once from my garage to your gaff.

just for @C8RKH

That's a very nice Sport410 for sure.  They don't photograph well but in the flesh I think they look awesome. The whale tail at the back is epic when viewed from the back at a 45 degree angle.

Also, having lived with mine now for a few years, I actually prefer to the interior to the S1. The S1 was superb for it's time, but the 4xx's is very usable.
