    Most cars this colour are very dull and never seen more than a basic wash at best. When such colours are polished up they looks stunning, amazing the transformation that can be achieved.

    Just a thought, the Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine would work well on that shade of red

    Thanks for the comments on the car photos :-) I have some AG Ultra deep shine! May give it a go next time!

    It's rained tonight and the water beading on the car looks really cool !

    Looks a lovely finish achieved.

    In regards to your question about Lime Prime, it is very effective when applied via a da or rotary, if you work the product into the panel for a short while the fine micro abrasives have a small level of corrective ability, combined with the oily nature it will certainly add a deep gloss and perfect base for a wax.

    Example

    Try doing it day in day out.

    For a first machine, the Kestrel da shouldn't be ignored.

    Nice job.

    I have just bought a new car (2003) and need to give the car a really good clean.

    Have you got any links for 'how to' to show the methods you used. I'd love to get mine that shiney
