    10 hours of sweat later

    well i had some more product turn up from cleanyourcar.com yesterday so i decided to give her the full treatment. i wanted one last go at trying to remove the dreaded swirls i had.
    first was the snow foam and wash using the 2 bucket method



    next on the list was a good clay (this was the first time ive used the clay) what a surprise


    this was the first piece of clay and there was loads, the second piece was even worse.
    next was some auto glym super resin polish



    after a good polish it was time for the wax, i used the zaino z2 pro (excellent stuff)



    then time for the wheels which i also used the super resin polish on and some meguiars gold class tyre gel


    then the glass was cleaned inside and out and meguiars gel for the splitter and finished pics








    i didnt finish till late yesterday and waited for the sun to come out today to reflect on the car and the dreaded swirls have gone. going to give it another coat of wax in a week so i can try and get some real depth and wet looking. very impressed with all the products i used.

    i thought my old vec was big to polish by hand lol...... cracking job there fella. SRP really is a very underated product that is so easy to use.

    also the black wheels and dark tails compliment each other a treat
