    3 - Snow Foam Applied Then Rinsed

    4 - 2 Bucket Wash Using Wash Mitt

    5 - Dried Using Microfibre Towel

    6 - Iron x Applied & Tar & Glue Remover!

    7 - Clay Bar Is Applied To Paint & Glass!

    8 - Polish Applied Using Dual Action Polisher!

    Thanks for the comments guys, am really happy with how it turned out! I used Naviwax along with dodo juice as a sealant and meguiars tech wax to finish!

    Looks good you wanna do mine I've had a dual action polisher for a while now and have tried many cutters and loads of different polishes but struggling to get a prefect finish, I have been speaking to a guy at clean your car as his unit is about 4 down from mine and he game me some Meg's 105 cutting compound and said anything any less won't touch Audi paint so I'm going to try that next week to try get rid of a few light blemishes and a few swirls, with it being black they stand out like a sore thumb. I did post a thread but nobody replied lol :(

    Started off by washing with fairy liquid to remove all the old polish, then clay barred,
    Meg's 105 to remove any swirls
    Meg's 205 polish
    Meg's wax
    Turtle gel tyre gel
    I did the 105 cutting after clay bar with honeycomb pad then again with a microfiber pad so twice over, and polished once with soft honeycomb pad then finished with the Meg's wax and I've got to say I'm impressed

    Sorry mate I never actually seen your post with your detailing snaps, I wasn't being rude not commenting back.

    Really good work, looks the part! :)
