    Talking burg 513 deep polish and clean

    took me a while to get round to writing this
    got pinged with a duty on sat (sit in a room answer phone that never rings and ensure security in my areas)
    or divert phone to my work area 20metres away and use my time and the garage to get stuck into my car
    firstly sorry theres no 'dirty pics' just got cracking and forgot about the camera
    luckily the das6 i bought from Dab_vxr turned up on friday and i'd already got all the dodo juice from juicyjen and i'd been needing the time and good weather to get cracking
    so here we go
    kit used today

    first washed with born to be mild, time to dry and drying towel
    then i got down to the real business
    i wanted to get rid of the swirls and marks i had so i used the Das-6 and some lime prime

    must say it worked well, really easy to work with


    the smoothness and reflections were amazing after the machine polish


    then outside for a quick smoke break and a couple of piccys


    then it was on to the waxing
    ive been wanting to use the dodo juice white lightning for ages now, ever since i saw it used on here on one guys burg
    'wax on' using supernatural finger cloth (awsome bit of kit)



    left to cure
    'wax off' using super furry (another quality bit of kit)
    and the results were amazing


    so good i decided to leave her be for a few hours, get something to eat, watch a movie and give her another layer
    didnt think it would get much better, tbh it didnt get much better but a little plus the extra layer of protection can never be a bad thing




    the i took her outside in the sun for a few piccys










    then she went back into the garage for the night





    glad i did leave her in the garage because i woke up in the morning greeted to great weather


    needless to say by the time i got home the astra was a little dirty

    but i gave her a rinse over with the hose and the crap just fell of
    hope you like this
    comments welcome

    nice very very nice..came up good with the lime prime..iv olny used it once by hand... think i might try it next time with a polisher .. as it's very oily so will give good deph/gloss look.

    Looks alright that. Out of interest, why didn't you clay? Sometimes bonded contaminants can get caught under the pad and cause scratching.

    Where abouts in Germany are you? My brother lives in detmold.
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


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

    its worth it mate, actually quite easy to work with
    just use it quite spareingly, little goes a long way

    once id used the born to be mild she was smooth as after claying so i wasnt worried
    i live in gutersloh mate, about an hour north of detmold


    Thanks for the comment fellas

    nice looking car mate, i'd say from them pictures, and your comment of gutersloh, and if i had to guess your based on PRB, because them hangers or what ever you want to call them look too long to be on Mansergh Bks.
