    Had a Golf GTTDi in on saturday. heres some photos of how i got on. Im still trying to get the hang of this 'Before and after' shots so please forgive the lack of detailed photos. (Could also do with a new camera!)

    Washed: Megs Gold Class
    Clayed: Megs Mild clay
    Polish: AG SRP
    Seal: AG EGP
    Wax: Zymol Carbon

    The paint was in abused condition. Heres the clay before the roof:

    Good work Martin..

    You'll soon get used to taking the photos, it comes second nature to me now tbh!

    SRP applied by hand or DA? The last time I used SRP was by PC7424 (i forget with what pad..) but the results were pretty amazing. A tired and heavily swirled black S-Type Jaguar was totally transformed.. A good 95% correction! (I know this wouldnt have last as they were merely 'masked', but, still!)

    thanks for the comments mate!

    Its all done by hand. Im still quite new to this game, and the thought of a using a DA is still a bit worrying incase i ruin the paint!

    You have more chance of ruining the paint with the claybar than you do SRP and a DA! :p

    Fair enough though - it pays to be patient!

    Look forward to seeing more of your work as your progress.

    Nice turn around buddy! The clay did its job, never seen the clay that bad from the roof and Bonnet! DA's are excellent, really does make the difference. Took me a while to take the plunge though.

    As above that is some serious contamination! Clearly never been clayed and maybe kepy under trees?!
