    just finnished claying and detailing my car took me 4 hours from start to finnish...
    first time for me toclay my car was scared at first but WOW... what a result... them little black spots that you get on your paint work that just refuse to come out... well claying took care of them with ease...
    also there was a incident a while back with a foldaway deckchair that left a green stripe down the side of the passenger skirt... now there is no stripe...
    after claying used some Zymol paint protector... then pollished it with Megs NXT tech wax paste... mmmm shiny

    mmm foamy





    now u need when looking at me car

    Looks like you did a very good job , it can be a tedious job for some but you obviously got into it , did you do under the bonnet or did you think "that's enough!"

    re the snow foam lance and other bits n bobs, www.i4detailing.co.uk comes highly recommended from me. Comes in sub £50 also.
