    Default My new GSi after 6 hours hard graft.

    I picked up my new motor on Sunday - A Vectra 3.2V6 GSi
    Its sooooo fast compared to my old 1.8

    When I got the car home the paint was in the worst condition I had ever seen a car, looked like it has been washed with wire wool.

    Heres the before shots of the passenger door(the whole car was like this):





    I polished the whole car with -

    Meguiars #83
    Meguiars #80
    Chemical Guys Scratch and Swirl Remover
    And here's the half n half shot:



    The whole car took 3 hours to polish out all the haze - heres the final result

    Bonnet Reflection:


    Front:




    Side:


    and the new debadged rear end(apart from the 3.2 of course)




    And finally the clean engine bay:



    Just to seal it all tomorrow with Jetseal 109

    Any comments?

    I used a rotary polisher for the scratch removal - then finished and waxed by hand.
