    Default Hull Detailing Meet

    Hey, thought id put the pics up in here since there isnt yet a section for 2010 meets.

    Well today I met up with Graham_a to detail his 09 Vectra VXR. Im not going to do a full write up but I will say that we got rid of a few swirls in the paint and on the light lenses. Graham was so pleased he washed my car for me while I was machining his so a big thanks to him for that.

    On to the pics....






    Here me in my daft hat applying the first coat or tyre gel so it can soak in.


    Bonnet done, we decided on Megs swirl X through the G220 with a megs polishing pad.



    This is the main reason only me and graham made it to the meet...


    The rear badges all masked up ready for polishing...


    Car all finished...





    And mine in the unit getting a quick once over...


    And the cars together - grahams is the one with the dark dimond cut wheels...










    Hope you enjoyed the pics as much as I enjoyed working on the car, and thanks again to graham for providing plenty of coffee and the unit with heater - was a realy nice area to work in.

    Comments welcome, good or bad

    Regards
    Matt

    Cheers mate, I use Megs Endurance Tyre Gel, it lasts about a week or so if it dosent rain. I put a couple of coats on though to try and get it to last longer.
