    Default Sapphire Black

    Finally got a chance to give the Vec a good clean today. Haven't had a chance since my son was born. Pics below. Thanks to Big Sig for recommending FK1000. Very impressed so far, easy to apply and buff off. just need some rain now to see the beading

    AG Shampoo
    AG Deep Shine
    FK1000 wax
    Meguires Tyre Shine
    3-4 hours of elbow grease!

    Looking good mate. Pics like that make me happy to have a black car, but mine's a bit sapphire grey at the moment. Need to spend the time and money soon to stop this guilt of neglect.
