    If yer paint is in good condition no matter what you use on top your going to get ease of cleaning and excellent hydrophobicity and that's all down to machine polishing but like you say Cancoat works for ya

    It does, and doesn’t need to be applied every few washes. Horses for courses and all that, I don’t have the time to apply waxes/polishes etc on a regular basis, so coatings work for me.

    Going to correct and redo the Cooper S bonnet this weekend, as I missed a few scuffs that’s I keep seeing.

    Not necessarily detailing related but I sold the golf and picked up an S3! As much as I loved the golf the S3 has always been a dream car of mine and I finally got the opportunity to purchase one!

    It needs a very good detail as the Sprint Blue (pearl) is not shining like it should but it still seems a lovely colour with lots of potential in terms of detailing.

    Glad to be back in the Audi family.

    I must admit the car is in excellent condition considering its age. Needs a good decontamination I will be sure to post some photos. Thanks mate!

    I got a very nice offer for the golf from someone who lived around the corner from me. As much as I was sad to see it go after putting a lot of work into it, it’s nice to know it’s local to me and it allowed me to buy one of my attainable dream cars.

    First clean, nothing fancy just a basic wash, used some of my strong valet pro snow foam, Sonax Shampoo, and a new mitt and towel. There’s a lot of tar spots on the car and will need a thorough decontamination.

    There’s also a good amount of swirls but thankfully no deep scratches so it should polish up nicely. Unfortunately ran out of time yesterday so all I can show is some clean shots of the car. I did give the exhausts a quick going over to with wire wool and some autosol as they were really bad.

    Getting the car booked in for a wheel refurb as they are appealing.

    Lol, when you say “appealing”, I am guessing thanks to autocorrect you meant appalling

    You done a top job on the outside of those tips, use the wool with your autosol on the inside also. Should come up a bit better.

    Did a spot of decontamination around the car today, still needs claying but again it was cut short as it has gone to the mechanic for two new tyres. Went for Michelin Pilot Sport 4’s as the Pirelli P Zero GT’s on the car just wear too quickly.

    G3 clay mitt, megs uc using da, srp by hand, followed by simoniz original tin wax.

    Gloss not the greatest, usually use turtlewax hybrid sealant, but read that the original wax is long lasting so will use the tw sealant to top up the protection next wash m

    Did a tip run today so the rear got a bit dirty so gave the inside a once over & a quick wash used C2v3 as a drying aid & tried Carpro PERL on the tyres.

    You know a car is very well looked after, just by a clean spray solution and cloths left in the boot netted elcove. Can't think for a better use of that space. Ideal for those emergency tree sap or bird poo moments. You always got something at hand to try and tackle it quickly before it sets.

    Don't know how many times l have just cleaned the car, only to be attacked by the flock poopers.

    Was in 2 minds about whether to post here, or in the 'What have you done to your 8v today' thread. Went for the latter. For a bit of variety. But in case anyone's interested....

    Always love your write ups @Jimbob76, great read, and agree with most of what you say . You are right, some awesome places here in good old Blighty, especially away from the crowds. Your S3 does in fact look as good as it did 2+ years ago, credit to you my friend

    Started paint correction on the rear 3/4, I’m going to need a slightly higher cut than what I’m currently using as I removed the majority of swirls in two stages however some marks still remain. I’m quite happy with what I’ve achieved so far.

    Got a picture of some of the uncorrected paint on the door vs the corrected paint on the rear 3/4.

    Uncorrected:

    This machine has been excellent for the price over the past two years.

    Edit: Looks like they don't have it any more, you can't go wrong with a DAS 6 Pro Plus, I think they're pretty good for around £200

    Correct me if l did'nt read your post right...you machined polished the paint with Megs Ultimate Compound....via a Dual Action polisher...then applied Super Resin polish by hand.....SRP....sole purpose is to mask paint defects and in the process add gloss....for the weekend warriors.....who dont own a machine polisher.........
