    Default Couple of Panels DA'd today :)

    Well as most of you know we had our third boy come on saturday. I don't have a lot time but it was great weather today and I had also recieved my new pads and 5" backing plate for the das6.

    Just did the boot top and rear and a rear quater panel.

    Had swirls again from me stupidly using a sponge to wash the car. I don't do that anymore as @happypostie has given me the correct guidance and a superb Lambs Wool wash Mitt

    Plus im now a demon power washer down at the local shell garage.

    So started with the Chemical Guys Hexlogic Green cutting pad using 3m Ultrafine compound followed with Megs Ultra Compound.

    Moved onto the Chemical Guys Hexlogic Blue cutting Pad then wiped down the excess residue with a good quality micro fibre cloth.

    Buffed to a shine with a Chemical Guys Hexlogic Black finishing Pad and Black Hole.

    Laid on some soft wax with a applicator pad and buffed by hand with a microfirbe cloth.

    The swirls are pretty much gone and the flake bursts out now.

    All in all im very happy I got a 2 hour slot today

    Let me know what you think.

    Cheers

    Chris

    Thanks Dave. It was great to get out today and do it. Mind you I also cut three front lawns (ours and neighbours either side and all the front hedges) So I have been a good and responsible boy too

    Thank you chum. We could have a go at yours in the near future if you like. I work near you so could do a few visits to get it looking its best. Let me know if interested. Might be in a few weeks though as I do have other priorities at the moment

    Thanks for the offer that would be good. I've also spoke to happypostie and he said he would take a look at my paintwork. Could do with a good polish.

    Also congrats on the new addition
