    My S Line Sportback

    Since it was dry this weekend I decided to give the car a clean, there are some minor marks and swirls left but I will get around to removing them. I also need to get around to doing something with the alloys. The outter lip needs polishing as its had a smart repair to remove kerbing. Anyway the pictures ......

    Steve - looks gorgeous but you will have to get it mapped, Clare's car (the wife) was re-flashed by the dealer last week and blimey you can really tell its back to standard - feels so sluggish in comparison to the Bluefin map, kep checking the handbrake wasn't on

    Please no more pictures of 'Black' cars .

    Achieving a finish like that is perfectly fine for me, if it avoids having to pay hundreds to a specialist company.
    I know they'd undoubtedly pick holes in any 'amateur' job, but it looks bloody good to me.

    I use Raceglaze aqua bathe to wash,

    then Jeffs prime and acrylic trigger, final detailing is with Jeffs QD. Its only had 1 coat of each so the shine should get better.

    Jeffs is available from polished bliss.

    The wheels were clayed with megs and then 1 coat of collinite 476 and 2 coats of Poorboys wheel sealent.

    Tyres are Blackfire gel

    alloy roof rails are P21 concours wax as are the door shuts.

    Plastic was dressed with AG Vynil & Rubber.

    I'm thinking of trying the Blackfire wax or Zymol carbon as posted in the cleaning section. There are also slightly larger pictures on detailing worlds site.

    Making notes as we speak...
    With regard to the wheels, are you saying you applied the PB wheel sealant after a coat of Collinite wax?
    I'd have thought other way around, so I'm mega curious.

    yep, it advises you clean and polish the wheels before hand and then add 2-3 coats of the sealant.

    Aaaah, so it seals the wax onto the wheels?
    I thought it sealed the wheels first, then you applied the wax.
    You live and learn.

    I'm a zymol fan and use the carbon, concours and destiny waxes on my cars.
