    I got modded live tomorrow at snettereton so i need my car cleaned properly, not just useing a bottle of t cut lol, mike mant was gonna do it for me but the weather stopped play with that one , so i asked the next best thing john2 seeing as he made an awsome job on his car i thought i might as well ask him to it .

    Used meguares (SP) 3 stages paint cleaner, polish and gloss for the body, back to black for the bumper and trims , normal glass cleaner for the windows and alloy wheel cleaner for the wheel and other odds and sods for the other bits and pieces!

    Meguiars is the bollox, did my focus with the same stuff aside from the paint cleaner about two weeks ago and it looked a different car afterwards. One thing i'd recommend is to try putty on your paint, you'd be amazed how much crap comes off. Looking very good though.

    The thing that stood out for me...
    was the LFC top

    Good taste.

    P.s. car looks nice and shiny too. Which Back to Black spray did you use? Simoniz? And does it matter if you get some overspray on the bodywork? Or did you have to be real careful when spraying etc.? Thanks.

    Very nice mate, how many times have I told ya, no use the T-Cut its the stuff of the devil, its evil!

    Amazing what results can be achieved using the right stuff. Now got to keep on top of it with regular wash and waxing!
