    Not a very pleasant start to the day weather wise, and at one point wondered if it was ever going to dry up, hence not a huge amount of pictures during the wash process as this was done in the rain.

    Citrus pre-wash to lower half and arches,
    Alloys cleaned with various brushes using AS Smartwheels,
    Shuts and gaps cleaned using G101,
    Foamed with Megs Hyperwash and left to dwell for a short while before pressure rinsing of, then re-applied and washed in the usual manner with the TBM,
    Rinsed by pressure followed by a rinsing with a free flow,
    Still raining at this point so went straight to clay using Megs mild & LT,
    Pressure rinsed again and dried using plush drying towels, leaving the car looking like so,





    Defects inspected under the brinkmann,





    Generally like this all over and fairly light,
    Decided to have a go with the back-up rotary I picked up yesterday, completely different set up to my Metabo and quite similar to a Makita, found it very comfortable and quite a decent machine considering the price, maybe not as refined as the Metabo but very good value nevertheless,



    Opted to use Megs 83 on a Megs polishing pad and refine down to LSP ready,





    A poor attempt at a 50/50 :rolleyes:, just wouldn't show up on camera,



    With the enhancement polishing complete an IPA wipedown was given,
    Exhausts polished up and sealed with Opti-seal,
    Alloys also sealed with Opti-seal, tyres dressed with Blackfire gel and arches & trim dressed with Megs all seasons,



    Paintwork and shuts sealed using Megs #21, which was left to cure for 20 mins whilst the glass was cleaned using VP CB,
    #21 removed followed by a final wipedown with Zaino Z8.

    Results.



































    Thanks for looking and comments appreciated
