    todays work and purchases....

    had to go to halfrauds to get a puncture repair kit as the baby buggy got a puncture so while i was there came across one of these to run on 12v (very handy for car shows) and at £19.99 a steal....



    now i always get swirls when i polish the bus ut this was the first attempt...



    so on the way out thought i didnt have enough of this so got another bottle.



    this is the result (watch out for the security dawg)

    i'm very happy with the results mate. i was wearing my titanium watch when i was cleaning my bus once and it went across the back window and put a scratch in it. i put some t cut on the fine pad and went over it now its reduced to a point where you have to look for it. its a great bit of kit to add to a car detailing bag.

    if i had to give it a rating it'd be 4/5, it would be nice to have more than one of each type of aplicator in the pack. other than that its a good spend for less than £20

    Ad, u need one of these fella, especially if ur gona be showing the bus in the new year. it takes the strain off the buffing work and does such a good job trust me. you have a black bus like mine, with a few coats of the good stuff and this lil machine, you'll have paintwork to die for!

    You think this is good enough to get swirls and scratches out?

    it wont do proper correction, it does the same thing as hand polishing just quicker

    TBH, it does a better job than most cloths i have used so far (i used to be a car valeter) and was hooked on auto glym until i found meguires stuff. in all fairness lee it does give a better finish (not perfect by any means) than by hand. i'm not saying its perfect but for someone who has a black bus and has tried loads of ways to keep a good shine on it, this is pretty good. i speak as i find.
