    Default 7 hours of detailing

    hi folks got up at 9 this morning and decided i was going to attack my car full on, i dont have a hose pipe so cant rinse and foam the car as u guys do ( i wish i could but live in a 3rd floor flat) anyway here is how the process went

    I "foamed" the car with a megs spray bottle and foaming head sprayer. Then rinsed with a pump sprayer.
    Washed using 2 bucket method and rinsed with pump sprayer again.
    Dried with megs water magnet
    Then came the hard bit, i did the whole car with megs scratch x to try and get rid of swirls.
    Not all swirls were gone so polised with autoglym super resin polish.
    Then sealed with autoglym extra gloss protection.
    And topped off with a layer of megs # 26.

    wheels were done when i washed and clayed the car on wednesday as was all trim.

    "ScratchX the whole car" hats off to you James

    It's looking great and I bet it looks even better in the flesh

    Remember no need polish it again for a while just the occasional application of wax or even just a top up spray wax.....I like either Megs Spray Wax or Chemical Guys Instawax or Optimum Car Wax this one in particular has the advantage of NOT staining plastic & rubber trim, infact it can be used directly on both
