    Looking very clean and shiney. Very nice.
    Not knocking it mate but the tyre dressing
    WHat you think about colour codeing the mudflaps ? I think it would look 100% better.

    One word mate, stunning.

    Maybe the tyres didn't come out too good in the pic?

    I took pics of mine recently & the tyres looked fine on the car, but in the pic they looked riffy.

    Thanks mate

    Ye will have to get something better that looks & lasts a bit longer for the tyres.

    Planning to do a clay and a Meguiar's 3 Step in the next week or so, just getting started.


    Apart from debadging the rear and an irmy grill i intend to keep it standard, think it will look better the way it was made to.

    Don't get me wrong the car looks stunning. Very tidy indeed. But the mudflaps are needing some paint

    Car looks fabulous matey.

    Personally I wouldn't bother with the Megs 3 step. What you've got already is better IMHO. Instead I 'd spend the money on a quality wax to protect all the hard work.

    Yep, the clay will strip off what's on there now. What I meant was next time clay it and then follow the same process that you have just done but put a quality wax on the top.

    Next step after Autoglym SRP etc. is not the Megs 3 step. Equal maybe but not a step up although they work differently to AG.

    You can spend a fortune on polish, paint cleaners, glazes and waxes etc. Dependent on budget and time.

    I'd just buy the clay and some Colly 915 but everyone has their own opinion on waxes too.

    If you click on my profile that's what around £200 of products and about 6 hours of work gets you. Your results seem pretty close eh.
