    Well after spending hours on my car I thought I'd better take some pics....

    So what have I done?

    Well aside from the usual snow foam prep ect ect...

    Clayed - Megs quick clay kit.

    Machine polished - Megs G220 polisher with Menzerna pads and polishes (the polishing pad wasnt touching the swirls so I used the compounding pad with Power Finish polish and then topped it off with the finishing pad with Final Finish polish.

    Wax - I've used Collinite No. 845 Insulator Wax. I've found this much better than the 476s.

    Took just under 13 hours overall......

    Was too dark to take pictures by the time I'd finished so I drove to a local jet wash as I know its supposed to rain all day 2morra and wanted some pictures of all my hard work before the cack weather spoils it..... Paint looks a little greasy to me, I'd usually give it a quick wash down after to remove this greasy look but didnt have time tonight.




    The picture of the front end hasnt turned out very well.... The camera either hasnt focused or didnt like the lighting.... But here it is anyway.....

    For anybody in the North East considering having their alloys refurbished I've had mine done through Romax on Portrack Lane, Stockton, and they have done a superb job.... (think it was £46 per wheel)
