    yes she came out very nice indeed m8 and i had arm ache which i have never had before i brought mine from ebay at about £12 i think after giving the car a very good tar remover wash then a rinsh then a shampoo wash then rinse then dry and then used the clay with the detaila spray do a panel at a time and wipe with a micro fibre cloth and then give it a good coat of wax/polish and then you get the end result, which i was so surprised on the out come

    if its your first time buy a mild clay and decent detailing spray as claying can and will introduce marring to the paint if done incorrectly. Claying is normally followed by a minor paint correction using a decent polish and then finished with good wax such as collonite or similar. The meguiars clay kit would be a good starting place and can be brought from most big halfrauds stores or online from somewhere like www.polishedbliss.co.uk

    http://www.theultimatefinish.co.uk/S...?ProductId=311 this kit comes with 2 bars if clay and a microfibre as well as a sample bottle of their cleaner wax. just wash as normal, treat any major tar spots with tar remover and then clay away, as said do a panel at a time, make sure u lube up well and dont press onto the paintwork too hard and you should be fine, follow it up with a good polish and wax and it should come up a treat.

    btw i would have linked to halfords website as they stock the same and is same price (i think) but their site dont seem to be letting me in. no waiting then
