    Default Cleaned the car

    hey guys i had a long weekend lol. it was my first ever go with a machine polisher and i wanted to get rid of as many scratches as i could. i did a good job but there are still some left and with my pad/ polish combo i think this is the best i can do however ill do it again after my back recovers lol. i had loads of help from my friend pete and a bit thanks to my fiancee for loads of tea/coffee and food supplies lol
    Start

    i then snow foamed, washed the car, clayed the car, snowfoamed and washed again and then dried ready for polishing however you can see 1st the damage i was trying to fix




    pretty much done however i waxed the car after this


    and done

    well happy so thanks for the advice and its a slippy slope tho its worth it. i really like the smooth paintwork :detailer:


    also you can notice the new lights i fitted 3 x 400w lights but i have one more to fit (its all the fault of detailing lol)
