    Default Rotary Polishing (2nd attempt)

    Following on from Rotary Polishing (1st attempt)

    Washed the whole car, then de-tarred it and followed with a good claying.

    Masked the whole car up and started with the rotary while my mate went round polishing all the plastics by hand with AG Super Resin Polish as the paint was quite good on them.

    Pretty good results all round although I have to admit to going through to the primer on a couple of edges but only slightly.
    It is still much better overall than it was before and we all gotta learn somehow.

    Finished off with AG Ultra Gloss Protection.

    Before:

    Few after shots:



    Thanks for looking.

    That's a quality transformation. I take it you're getting to grips with the rotary then!
