    Process:
    Washed with 2 bucket method
    Dryed
    meguiars clay bar with meguiarsshop quick detailer
    Polished using AG
    1 coat of meguiars wax
    Wheels cleaned with some valeting wheel cleaner did the job but the wheels where already clean after a rinse with the jet wash
    Tyres dressed using cheap tyre spray from the £ shop (need to get some good tyre black)

    For my first real crack at it i'm happy with the finish but really need to learn how to take better pictures the reflection was exellent in the daylight.

    Any comments please

    Nice first job, getting good images is always harder than it sounds, but you did okay - you can see a nice looking gloss to the paint. As for how to move forward in the future? Well, detailing is a slippery slope in terms of addition, so see where your nose leads you. Getting a really decent wash kit together is task number one, then a good glaze and protective system for hand use. After that, if you want to take your paint further, then machine polishing is the next logical step to remove the swirls... :sm4:
