    Default It was a hard slog........

    Finally got some time to post up pics from yesterdays buffin sesh,a marathon 6 hours and I know thats not long in comparison to some seshes on here but I was knacked!After seeing the results of claying on Envys post and a gentle shove from happypostie I got a clay kit,went for Autoglym everything and a Bilt Hamber clay bar on the side the claybar with the Autoglym kit was half the size of the Bilt Hamber so used the whole bar.... Have to say results are great,even with the AG Rapid detailer lube you can feel the clay grabbing the crud out the paint,that stuff smell amazing too,like bubblegum ,applied some AG UDS then a layer of EGP more than chuffed with the end result,was cloudy all day and was hopin for some sunshine at the end to make her pop but sods law!
