    Well being in the good books I was allowed to spend more than 2 hrs on the car.
    I was planning to hit it with the DA polisher but grey skies threatening rain il keep that for another day :(
    I was planning to take pics along each stage but momentum kept me going :)
    First I pressure washed the car then snow foamed it.
    Then washed it with Angelwax shampoo and a lambs wool mitt.
    Then Clayed it with waxtec clay and AW QED for lube.
    Then washed it again and dried with a big mammoth towel.
    Then put on 2 coats of AW dark angel.
    This stuff is immense and covered small chips on the bonnet which I had lots of . i cant rate this highly enough for black cars.
    AW elixer for plastics.
    Garnets transparency glass on the windows.
    Mega wheel cleaner. Megs tyre spray.
    Mer wheel wax.
    Took 4 1/2 hours including a Hoover inside and wipe down.
    All comments welcome :)
    Here are some pics, sorry for the iPhone quality :-

    Top job Robbie. You'll be wanting some more products soon then......lol. I said Dark Angel would work a treat on the bonnet and the pictures wont do it justice either as the flake in Phantom Black is awesome after its been waxed.

    Cheers Sandra :)
    Thanks Mark :)
    Aye deffo found the products I like :)
    Dark Angel is fantastic a lot easier to go on than poorboys.Its a lot softer.
    Don't think I'd put on more than 2 coats as it deepened a lot with the second coat.
    The rest of the AW products I just take for granted :)
