    Default Reflection shot after Detail - Sapphire Black

    Hello Guys,

    Got a reflection shot that i've posted up of the Vectra after i spent 13 hours cleaning her.

    Was in a hurendous state when i picked her up but another decent session & she will be back to her prime!

    Here's 2 pictures for now.





    Cheers,
    Glenn.

    Very nice fella.

    Best I've seen so far though is when we detailed Paul's ( @pipamish ) after fitting his new suspension. Check out the pic in the third post on this thread.

    There is definitely something about the metallic black though if it's looked after and the paint is in good condition. Can't beat it for a gloss look sharp reflection, although I still wouldn't change my Ultra Blue for it

    Fantastic progress so far glenn, looking forward to the aftermath. Just out of curiosity what's your polish of choice and how are you applying it? ie dual action/rotary ect ect.
