    Default New toy= 5 hours outside

    Well I got myself a power mopper/buffer today.....So a trip to halfords for there 3 for 2 offer and I started the following:
    Jetwash
    Hand wash with 2 buckets using autoglym shampoo
    Clay bar using autoglym clay bar and detailer
    Hand washed again
    Leathered
    now this is where some may so no no, but I got myself some Turtle wax colour restorer due to swirl marks.....I used the mopper to apply and to buff of the TW and it came up a treat 90% swirls gone yipeee, plus that chip stick works ok(ish).

    But then I hand polished with autoglym resin polish
    Then I sealed with autoglym high gloss
    Used autoglym wheel cleaner and tyre dressing

    Then went to get the camera and batttery dead, so Ive had to use my phone for some quick pics lol:
