    WOW what a shine !!!
    I do mine with the maguirs range, but its still "swirl city" even after using scratch x. Good shine though, but can take me 5 or 6 hours

    I will have to get myself one of those porter cables.
    What products did you use to get that shine ?

    On the market there is so much stuff for swirl removal and getting you car looking mint its basically down to personal preference and what your happy using to gain these results. I personally either use the pinnacle range of swirl removal and finishing polishes or there is the sonus range sfx 1,2,3.

    but in getting a car to shine preparation is the key, Ie claying (yes marc you taught me that one.) I didnt think that stage was so important but yes it is, and i agree with the statement if you dont clay dont bother.

    Tizy dont expect to buy a porter cable and the job get any easier or quicker because its not, the stealth took me about 7 or 8 hours to do.

    and to be fair aswell black cars are always the most rewarding and give the best results but are also the most unforgiving....Black cars show up every defect when machine polishing and can showe micro marring , buffer trails etc if not done correctly....

    I think the stealth is such a cool looking 888...

    Your not wrong marc and i agree black cars look awsome when they are done correctly but can also look rubbish when done wrong

    I totaly agree about the clay bar, its a must !!

    Ive been claying mine since march and you can really see and feel the difference. I dont mind if the porter cable is not really any quicker, just easier on your arms than doing it by hand cos its hard work.
    I enjoy spending the day cleaning and polishing then admireing the art at the end
