    Hi all. Happy New Year.

    I'm unable to 'do the rounds' much at the minute as my internet is down at home. Far from ideal...

    Anyway. Although I've not been able to upload pics, I have managed to put together a little video of the recent work.

    YouTube - Volkswagen Touareg V6 - WhiteDetails

    Let me know your thoughts. Both the car/job and the video.

    As soon as I am able to put the photos up I'll follow this thread with the usual report process.

    Cheers!
    Jim

    What was the owner washing the car with previously, a brillo pad!!

    Cracking job though, wish I had the guts to use a machine polisher on my car. Not brave enough yet

    Thanks buddy

    Ive recently brought a Flip HD III Gen pocket camcorder to work with on the reports etc.. But, as of late, ive been unable to test it fully. Also, the whole 'me not having the internet' at home doesnt help either. (still likely to be another 2-3 weeks, which, this day and age, is a joke! :mad:)

    never thought I would watvh a 5 min video or a car being polished but wow thats impressive...... previous posted was right though, what was the owner cleaning it with to do so much damage !

    Looking like I will have to get my act together and give my new toy (2003 phantom black A4 Cab) a proper going over soon I get suitable weather..... I already noted a couple of annoying scratches on the boot lid and the bonnet......

    Amazing job on the VW, jaw well and truly dropped looking at the difference....
