    here are some pics me at hard work like said wont be doing that again in A LONG time

    after the polish i used my wax of choice which was (best of show which i appled all over the car then waited 10 mins then buffed it all off


    here are the pics sorry they aint in any order of the paint correction.. the pics dont really do it any justice .. put it this way there are NO swirl's..or scratch AT ALL

    Looks good Paul, top job.

    Only thing is it's pointless using the HD before machining as the FC+ will take it right off. I use it after ultrafina as a pre-wax cleanser as it gives a nice oily, lsp ready finish.

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

    thank's gaz mate.. yeah i only used the HD cleanser think was going to wc it after a wash.... but did find that after the ultrafina it did dull the paint work a little befor the lsp mate...

    think i'll wait a 2/3 week give time to recover lol then will strip it back down again then use the ultrafina polish the the hd cleanser...then will try my purple haze pro

    thank's for the advice and feed back
