    Default Vec's first proper wash.......

    Pics aint the best but everything's been against me the past 2 days, weather, light etc.
    Still decided that the show must go on as they say,
    The Beast, not just filthy its spent a life through auto car washes by the looks of things,
    just a few of the weapons of choice,



    first was the engine bay, no before's but much better,



    then the rest,





    So out with the gun,



    Once clayed, washed again it was time to see the damage ( as above with the light was hard to get decent pics ) whole car covered in scratches and swirls, most where only light but some deep ones.









    using the DAS6 and Meg's with Sonus SFX-1.

    8 hours later,
















    Paint has some deep grazes in which ill have to touch up but much better now

    Black cars do look awesome when clean. What foam are you using mate ??? could do with being a bit thicker so it will dwell longer.

    Its the auto-chem cherry.

    Thing was I had the proper foam lance and dropped it and smashed the bottle, so im just using the small yellow one i got with the karscher until I can get a new lance.
