    process used

    hosed car over to wetten and get off loose dirt etc

    wash with gold class shampoo - http://www.meguiars.co.uk/cgi-bin/specwd.pl?pc=G7116&tp=0

    using lambswool wash mitt - http://www.meguiars.co.uk/cgi-bin/specwd.pl?pc=A7301&tp=0

    hose down with water

    washed again repeating above

    hose down with water

    then dry off with Supreme Shine Microfibre - http://www.meguiars.co.uk/cgi-bin/specwd.pl?pc=X2010&tp=0

    then cake wheels in this > http://www.meguiars.co.uk/cgi-bin/specwd.pl?pc=G9524&tp=0 vigarate all around with some old sponge and rinse with hose

    the some bit of sponge to apply the tyre gel - http://www.meguiars.co.uk/cgi-bin/specwd.pl?pc=G7516&tp=0 - smells lush, like blackcurrant fruitella (use gloves if you don't want black fingernails for the next week, lol)

    then using an applicator pad > http://www.meguiars.co.uk/cgi-bin/specwd.pl?pc=X3070&tp=0 apply the trim detailer > http://www.meguiars.co.uk/cgi-bin/specwd.pl?pc=G10810&tp=0 to all the black bits - grille, side skirts, wiper arms, aerial etc

    took 1hour 40mins :)

    It happened to me but only 2 panels, every time I washed it I had a constant reminder of someone with no respect for other people's property. I couldn't claim through insurance as excess was too high and was a poor student at the time.

    Chris can't you get a full respray through insurance?

    Looks nice and clean again Drew. I wish mine looked as clean as yours after a wash. That wet and shiny look is good or is it some PS trickery.

    What happened in the last pic...the wheels are pointing the wrong way.
