    Yesterday was a Polishing tuition session with a client from the Bimmer Forums. Some of you will know him - so of you will not We went through the morning focusing on the techniques for Rotary Machine Polishing with various pads and polishes to get the mystery guest comfortable with whole process of Machine Correction and handling the Flex PE 14-2 150 Rotary Polisher .

    Ill let you see the pictures and see if you can spot the mystery guest



























































































    Yes you guessed it its Mark!

    Mark wanted some tuition for the Machine Polishing Correction Technique so we arranged a time and date to suit and we set to work together! I gave advice to Mark about the different aspects of polishing in terms of Polishing Machines, Polish and correction reducing swirl marks and defects. Well to say i was impressed was a understatement! Mark quickly picked up the the control of the machine very quick and was soon getting more and more comfortable with the machine and getting some gloss to the panel! Well done mate!
    It was then onto our new Wax which will be available soon, a special unique blend of Carnauba which spreads like butter and goes on for ages, in fact one swipe of the wax did the whole bonnet of the test car!
    A buff off to reveal a stunning shine and gloss which i was impressed by considering what he first encountered with the test car!

    Well mate well done and many thanks for your time and efforts and popping into the Autobrite Car Care Centre!

    All the best

    Mark!

    Mark, thanks for a fantastic morning, thoroughly rewarding

    Got to work out now how to get the pennies together for that fantastic Flex polisher, already looking for donor cars to practice on for when Santa pays an early visit. I reckon I can keep that beauty in the garage and the wife will never notice
    (Saying that, the morning was a surprise birthday pressie from the long suffering wife )

    Guys, get along to the forthcoming meet, always a great event, but beware you'll get the OCD like I have

    Nice work chaps, I see that Vorny is putting his time off to good use.... Hope you made him useful around the shop as well Mr Moss - he can even make a decent cup of tea you know...

    Now thats a shame Kev, i did not get to try a cuppa from Mark today. I think he was too involved in his polishing

    However there will be plenty of opportunity at the Bimmer meet me thinks
