    Engine : 3.2 v6

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 69,000

    Default cleaned again and decent pics

    well spent the day cleaning the car so i could test out the new camera and was quite pleased with how they came out, took a bit longer to clean than first hoped but that was due to having to keep stopping because of it spitting about a little, eventually stopped to went out and finished off cleaning

    what i did today:
    cleaned the wheels
    washed and dried the car
    cleaned the windows
    poorboys ssr2.5
    meguiars polish
    poorboys blackhole
    blacked the bits of plastic around mirrors and fogs and rear valance up
    2 coats of turtle wax platinum series wax
    dressed the tyres

    was very pleased with how she cleaned up here are some pics....











    one of my mate who came and helped finish the wax off

    looks very nice , do love a black car!!

    imo i would bin off either the ssr2 or the megs polish as you are polishing it twice!!

    if i rememebr then the poor boys ssr 2 is better off applied with a maching polisher, as it can leave the finish a bit "cloudy" if you do it by hand.apparently you cant break it down well enough by hand.

    this was explained to me by alex at serious performance who sell the stuff!!

    still nice job though!
