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

    Ben that looks nice but im gonna be critical here and say what i think and that is that you,ve made all the effort to make the car look great yet we cant see what you,ve done as your photos are not doing your car any justice at all. i know the finish will be alot better than what we can visually see which is a very dark car , detailings about the finished article of a car and reflections and depth etc so maybe next time get some great shots of the trees in your bonnet and get some shots down the side showing the colours and contours of the car , it deserves it after the effort put in.

    no worries marc. i dont mind at all. i know its not one of the best examples but from what it was like before i polished and waxed it properly its nothing less than a miracle. ill see what i can do tomorrow morning with the camera . i darent get too close though. is yet to be machine polished so you can imagine the swirls in direct sunlight. gonna try and get a D/A with meguiars pads and some 3m cutting and finishing polish and then it will be ready for sun reflections lol. dont suppose you know of any places where i can buy all this in one pack at all?
