    Default 4 hour clean today = sore fingers & shiny vec!

    gave my wheels and arches a good going over on saturday but didnt get change to give bodywork a once over so decided to get cracking today!

    washed down with fairy liquid (to remove all old wax/fillers)
    clayed with t-cut claying kit
    washed again with meg's gold class wash
    towel dried
    meg's ultimate compound
    poorboys blackhole
    2 coats of meg's gold class liquid wax

    that should do me for a while now, should jst get away with a quick wash and a top-up coat of wax





    and the mandatory reflection pics lol

    Looks mint paul, just a quick question, are you using UC every time? Only ask as you have no polish on the car.

    You wont lose all your lacquer mate, in fact megs quote that it can be used everyday for a year with out losing the whole clear coat. I only asked as there are some many polishes out there better than megs UC.
