    Default Clean and Polish

    Used my new polisher today, All went well until the temp dropped and the polish wouldn't dry. Got round it by starting the car and putting the heaters on. Used Meguirs step 2 Crystal polish.



    I'm pleased with it. Be dirty again in a few days.....

    Nice job done there. Doesn,t the machine polisher make the job a whole lot easier, and quicker too.

    It definatly does but had to finish it off by hand with a terry cloth, only way to get in all the nooks. Also saves on polish as you dont use anywhere near as much.

    Always wanted the plate so last year I just thought F it and got it. My old dear hates it as my rents are divorced and she's gone back to her maiden name, But she lives 3.5hrs away so I don't care wht she thinks.... lol

    This is the polisher, Very good kit and arrived in 3 days.

    Dont forget to wax the car matey as Im sure that the Megs No 2 has no wax in it and with all this weather we are having that shine will be getting a right beating. Nice job though and makes me want to give my motor a good sort out but its to bleeding cold for me

    I was going to wax it after (meguirs gold class carnuba) but it got dark and much colder. Had to fit my insignia washers and clean the glass, then dress the tyres.

    Got a 500 mile round trip this weekend so no doubt it will be minging by the end.... But I love cleaning it when you can get a shine like that.
