    Default Detailed the veccy

    I though it was about time that the vectra was detailed properly. So here are the results. I also had a go with a new rotary which I had got for christmas. Personally I don't think the results are that bad considering the weather wasn't the best today.

    Result is always great when car looks clean and shiny. Waiting for appropriate weather to clean and polish mine. Oh, and my bonnet looks the same

    Yep. My mate has got even his own theory that the acrylic car paints are way worse and softer than these used long time ago. His 15 yo black Primera's bonnet doesn't have even half many damages in comparison with mine.
