got round to doing my car this weekend and with the help of a mate colin(CMD) we put in 12 hours each on the car. i havent got my head around doing a good write up yet but hope this shows what we got up to.
car was gleaming before we started so not much of a turn around but i want the car swirl free and now its about 90% swirl free with the odd flashes as i call them in the paint which i will sort with a rotary soon to come.
Lokate CP cut 500
3M fast cut
3M Ultrafina SE
CG wet mirror finish
after the wash stage and dried off it was into the garage for the machine work to start. i was looking forward to it.
as the car is well maintained there was not many big swirls going on but it still needed a 2 stage polish with Lokate CP Cut 500 and 3M fast cut, finished off with 3M Ultrafina SE which gave a real good shine. i like the CP cut 500 as its not to hard a compound and is good for medium to little defects.
sorry for not getting any 50/50 and after shots of the panels but time was flying and it went from my mind. like i said im still getting the hand of these write ups.
Rear clusters done using a sonus spot pad and Lokate CP cut 500
This is the only one i had of a before and after
Finished the machine work about 8pm and i was knackered to say the least. final shot after pressure washed to remove dust and fallout and then dried and put into garage ready for me sunday morning to apply chemical guys wet mirror finish and then collonite 915.
just a few shots in the sun after i had finished the car. she now looking the best she has.
thanks for looking, i will get better at these write ups soon i promise.
