    Default My vectra has gone guys and i have moved on

    Well the day had to come. My vec has now gone..Ive moved onto to another car which is a BMW 320D M Sport.

    I didnt really want to let it go for the love i have for Vectras but i got my BMW at a good price and tbh the drive of the BMW is truly superb!!

    Anyway here are a few pics of some correction work i did at the weekend on it but then i had camera problems!!!

    There will be more pics to come and there will be a review of our new Autobrite Carnauba waxes...

    I took delivery of my new car over the weekend and when i got it home there were some correction that had to be done
    There were a fair few swirl marks all over the car and and for a 56 plate it was quite bad.

    So my weapon of choice was Silverline Storm rotary polisher

    3M Polishing Pad
    3M Extrafine
    3M Ultrafina

    At this point i only managed to prep the car and correct some panels as my camera has been playing up for a few days now so sorry for the lack of pics..

    The bonnet before







    3M Extrafine and 3M Ultrafina was my choice

    Results after







    I was pleased with the polishing results



    Some 50/50 shots of the correction




















    Sorry guys i ran out of pics there

    All corrected and now time to apply one of our new Autobrite Carnauba waxes 'Addiction'..

    Pics and reviews to follow..

    Thanks for looking..

    Mark

    WOW, that's what I need. My car resembles your 'before' pics at the moment.

    Oh and by the way, I said to the missus, "Blimey look at the shine he's got on his car....". She saw your reflection Mark and said, "Sod the car, who's he, he's a bit of alright...." PMSL, be afraid Mark, be very afraid lol
