The first and last pictures was a full 8 hour day lol, 3 stage machine polish using 3m products, auto Glym clay, auto smart tar and adhesive remover, quick jet wash with tfr, then used autoglym radiant wax polish (3 coats) then auto Glym hi def wax and then ape detail spray.. Long day but worth it

The other 2 are just quick washes with tfr, clay and polish using auto smart stuff can't mind the name lol.

Well worth putting effort into it

No bother mate! Good to know people near by lol, and I was a Valeter and was trained by auto Glym, but the first one I done was on my car, my car Noones going to complain lol, then moved onto a few of my mates cars like the black cupra that's in ghead, but if you've got the patience and prepared to make a mess then yeah I'd give it a go

Nice beading.

The only time I've had anything like that on my car is when Venters has had his hands on it. I consider it a success if I manage to wash the car and only miss a few bits :laugh:

[MENTION=1787]Harper[/MENTION], you can get that effect quite easily simply by washing the car with WD40 ;)
