    Polished Bliss Vs my S3 - Take two

    Since Clark is too busy cleaning, polishing and waxing cars just now, I thought I'd post his latest efforts on my car. To say I'm blown away is an understatement!

    Polished Bliss Vs 330bhp Audi S3 + Zymol

    The owner signed up for a monthly maintainance plan afterwards which includes a top up of Zymol Vintage each time, and i couldnt have had a nicer day for this months top up :thumb:

    Firstly, here are a few pics showing the beading of Vintage after the car was washed, this is nearly 6 weeks since the detail (note that plastics and rubbers are also beading very well too):









    Chris had also collected a few scuffs on the back bumper during his time moving house, so i polished these out with the Rotary and then followed up with HD Cleanse and then re-applied the Vintage and then to the rest of the car.

    I have been told by several people "in the know" about the higher end Zymol waxes such as Vintage/Royale etc that you do start to notice a difference once more layers begin to build up. I had reserved judgement untill today and i am pleased to report that i definitely noticed the car was looking wetter than before when i returned to the house around 3 hours later (i went to view an Evo VIII with paint so thin i nearly fainted! :eek: :D) for the final buff down with field glaze, the paint looked so alive when the sun hit it, unfortunately you cant capture that no matter how good a camera you have!

    Chris noticed a difference too which is the main thing :thumb:

    Anyways, here's the finished pics, not quite so many as usual write ups as i managed to refrain from being too camera happy today! :D











    These are his "other" winter wheels, just back from powdercoating :lol:



















    I am now genuinely excited to see what it looks like next month after its 3rd coat, but more importantly, i really really cant wait to get 3 or 4 coats on my Leon! :D :D

    I've said in another thread somewhere that I think this job is the finest Vintage I've seen yet.

    Then I saw this top up and started to think............................................. ...............................................
    yeah too bloody right it is. The colour and wetness is awesome.

    Amazing.

    I'll get some more photos taken once I've given it a little clean this week.

    Your part of the world is not too bad for sunshine matey, compared to the rest of us .

    Somehow it's difficult to picture that car in the rain. I see something different in it each time I look at it.
