    My attempt at a detail! With gaz help!

    So i woke up after my thread yesterday and being told i haven't got to work and sent a pm who told me what i needed. gaz
    Started off with a nice gentle rinse.
    I then began washing my wheels with Auto gyms wheel cleaner
    Then i dried them and sealed them with autoglyms wheel sealant.
    Then i set about the paintwork. Wasn't in the best condition even though i just got it. I started with some Megs NXT shampoo recommended by gaz. Washed it and rinsed twice using the two bucket method.
    I then used megs clay kit to clay the entire car panel by panel using the water and QD as lube. The clay bar was filthy. I then re washed the car again as above. Then i dried with a drying towel which was not great but i did the best i could as i need a proper sonus der wunder towel!
    Then i began my polish with the left over of my SRP.
    Then added some megs endurance gel to the tyres.
    heres my results.






    Just gonna get some petes 53 then build the wax layers up.
    Can i use QD as a polish just to give it a nice finish till i get the wax? or is this only used as a lube to clay.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
