    Default A Sunday Spent Cleaning - NO MORE SWIRL CITY!!!

    Hey Folks,

    After all of you pointed out sometime previously about swirl city on black cars and Kurdish Car Wash's, you got me paranoid so I went round looking for the swirls on my Dad's Facelift SRI....well I FOUND THEM, and lots of them tooo at that, so I did something about it.

    As I have just booked a holiday, im having to watch the pocket.....so went for the typical cheap skate Turtle Wax (I know, I know, I'll get my coat.....!
    Anyway, gave it a proper hand wash with some proper Turtle Wax Car Shampoo (once again and dryed it off, and got to work with the wax.

    Took a fair bit of time, but the majority of Swirls are history!!

    Lets just say, as I was wax'ing it, I could literally see the grey from the black and it has really brought up the sparkle in the metallic paint.

    Im happy with the results, more so-my dad said it looks great!

    Windows cleaned and everything plastic has been restored!

    Now, the ultimate verdict....your thoughts guy's??










    Bye bye Vec B
