    yeh i want it detailing for the summer months, the camera i used wasnt too great either, the swirl marks are more noticeable as i had just given it a quick wash and shammied it off in the sun (not the best idea for black cars!!!!)

    is there any decent mobile detailers in north west area??

    also i anyone up for a meet in the north west in tyhe next month or so???

    cheers for the comments!!!:arco:

    no but his car always looks Mint when we get to see it (after he's washed/waxed it like the rest of us)
    Black paintwork is so hard to keep clean and Swirl free as it shows up everything, My old man is getting rid of his because he's sick of cleaning it!

    If you chaps want something that lasts on black, can heartily recommend Zaino Z2 Pro.

    It's just awesome on black, heres a couple of shots of a Civic Type R we finished with Zaino Z2 Pro.

    The Klasse kit is indeed good and P21s was amongst the first waxes I used.

    The trick with Klasse is to use it VERY sparingly. It is an utter bastard to remove if you don't

    As Chris is aware all your detailing questions can be answered on the detailing forum i.e. detailingworld.com. By the way expect your wallet to get a thrashing.

    I agree with Chris get an old panel from scrapyard and practise on that - great for your confidence - good luck

    No, dont listen to these, Get the Machine out and start Burning through, Hardcore styleeeee;)

    :eyebrows:

    Its bloody hard work and never get the finish like the pro's, trust me Ive done it. Arm ache, shoulder ache.....back ache...headache...:think: Basically a Ball ache.
    If its a quick polish then it does the trick but anything like you see from these detailing boys, You'll get nowhere near without some mega Practise and the right stuff.

    I did this on my Scoobs when I first got it, 5hrs bare polishing with some Compound Mix, cut the paint, Buffed up...
    The Paintwork is actually the same on both pics (no respray), I just added a few ingredients after the Polish!!
