    Unhappy Gutted!

    Gutted as spent 9 hours working on my alloys and paintwork today on my silver Vec, got it looking awesome (as best as I could doing it by hand), then it got dark so pictures will have to wait till tomorrow. And car will probably get dirty on way to work.

    Only got into machine polishing when I got the Vec last Feb and I can without doubt say it's the best investment I made! takes me 20 mins to wax the whole car and with better results than by hand! Need to get a seperate pad for the polishing stage as I still use AG SRP by hand.

    Look at the second pic in this thread, as this is post machine polish! (picture also taken on Blackberry phone)

    Managed to get a few pics at work, after a heavy frost and commute on country lanes. Apologies for quality but taken on phone.
    As you can see even after 9 hours of hard work, 3 loads of AG SRP and 2 coats of AG HD wax still some swirling so defo need to get into machines.
    And only did paintwork and alloys, no work on trim, tyres or windows
