    actually it kept spitting with rain when I was half way through claying with dark clouds coming over but it was windy so blew through fairly quickly and came sunny for an hour which is when I finished and took the pics

    the bad thing was I was out of the sun on the drive and it was damn cold! though on the drive I couldnt see how much better it was until I took it round the corner for a pic and the difference is immense especially in the sun the wax in the kit leaves a really deep shine

    next time I will get the buffer out and give it a few more coats

    Your Vectra is looking good, black one's really do seem to shine.
    That kit looks good value, just ordered one. Hopefully it will be here before the weekend.
