    Default Detailed the outside of the vectra today

    I decided to detail the vectra whilst it was a nice day.

    Snowfoamed



    Once I had done this I then washed it using AG Shampoo Conditioner this up until I get round to ordering more products on line. Once this was complete I then dried it using a meguires terry towel. Then I moved onto polishing to remove most of the swirl marks out of the paintwork upon finding out that it was better to use a machine polisher than do it by hand as you get better results as the pictures below show i did it three times all over.

    Before being polished



    Stage 1



    Stage 2



    Stage 3



    After 1 half being done and other half not being done



    Once i completed the polishing I decided to use the extra gloss protection to help protect the paintwork

    Mirror image



    Finished a couple of hours later



    Comments welcome

    Thanks for comments.

    They haven't completely gone but am going to be investing better stuff for getting rid of the swirl marks.

    The snowfoam is really good it loosens all the muck off the car really well making cleaning a lot easier.
