    Having been talking about this for AGES and never doing it, I have finally ordered my Porter cable, transformer and sonus pads etc..

    Thanks to Polished Bliss, Ive read every one of their guides on their site, and the stickies here (compiled the lot into a word doc for some colleagues too, sad but oh so useful) and have ordered a bunch of stuff from them to complete the full kit: wash mitts, waffle weave towel triple pack, microfibre wash mitt for wheel arches, tape, JEFFs werkstat Acrylic kit (silver car!), poorboys wheel sealant, blackfire tyre gel, etc etc etc

    and when the weather pics up I shall take great delight in taking a day off work!!:rockwoot:

    D.I.V.O.R.C.E!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Seriously, you won't be disappointed mate. Don't forget to spot pad your light clusters, and give them a good cleanse and coating with the JEFFS twins. Adds such a nice twinkle in the sun.

    Keep us posted on your progress won't you?

    its the emergency window clearer. Im REALLY fussy about having clear windows all round at all times, so its carried in the car ;)

    transformers can be had from local electrical wholesalers for £40-45. cheaper the screwfix etc (taking into account postage)


    wx, any idea when the mez's intensive will be back in stock?

    They have a habit of picking up random bits of grit and then leaving very long, very deep scratches that are hard to get out. Avoid at all costs, it's easy to see them as good... until the first time you collect a bit of grit and see the resulting scratch. :faint:
