    Default Wash, Clay, SwirlX and Wax

    I should of thrown a polish in too but didnt have time! Bit cheesed off as I've found some panels/little areas that have been sprayed and dont look very good! And I found loads of marks/scratches/chips bit the SwirlX seems to of masked most of this so disnt look too bad on the end! And didnt half remove the swirls etc.. on it!

    Nice job. Poor Boys Black Hole is one of the best at hiding marks on a black car. I honestly would never own a black car though. Saw some very poor examples today, people just don't realise the work required to keep them half decent.

    Looks great!

    Do you think the SwirlX would work on my Star Silver Vectra and where did you get it from?

    looks good,as you said you would of been better polishing it, then a good wax to protect the shine .But it does go to show what shine you can still get on an 04 car if you put the time and effort in.Keep up the good work .

    Thanks Soulman.

    Think I'll pick myself a bottle up soon and "Give it a go".

    As regards the wax, I give the car a good wash off first then use "ProShine" (or whatever it's called now - they keep changing the name) and it leaves a really good shine.
