    Top job.

    which type of menzerna are you using? I tried stuff called Poorboys SSR1 and SSR2 (light and medium swirl removers) and they didn't touch the swirls on my A4...

    Also, how much pressure were you using on the paintwork?

    I have one of those silverline orbitals too... they do work surprisingly well. I used Menzerna Final Polish II on my S3 and while there are still a few swirls the finish is so much better than before.

    Good job mate

    I've always heard good things about Poorboys kit...

    Cheers all i was useing menzerna 203s as it was my first time its very fine. There are still a few swirls on the paint but very hard to notice. As for pressure not a lot just the weight of the polisher.


    And that stuff to finish the carnauba stuff from halfords 9 quid is fantastic. Iv not found a better wax than that at the mo.

    Unless anyone knows of a better wax to finish with??

    cheers

    i find that Collinite 476s wax is superb alot of the guys over at detailingworld swear by it and its only around 15 a pot and lasts ages!
    Ive found that the only polish that touches the swirls in Audi paint is Menzerna Power Gloss - other polishes take ages to see any worthwhile results!

    Collinite is brilliant, get some!. Last for ages and gives a great shine.

    Its far better than a lot of very expensive waxes out there.
