The plan was to do the following:

Wash
Megs Clay with Megs Quick Detailer
2nd Wash
Autoglym Super Resin Polish
Autoglym Extra Gloss Protection

It was a gorgeous day on Sunday and I managed to get most of the detailing work I wanted done on the car completed - I ran out of time though and never got round to applying the AG Extra Gloss Protection!!

Here's some progress pics of the car after the wash, clay and 2nd wash:













Here's the final result (wash, clay, 2nd wash, AG SRP)



































Some close ups (after wash and clay):








Some close ups (after):






I'm going to give it another wash and another coat of AG SRP this weekend and then make sure I have enough time to top off with AG EGP. I'm fairly happy with the results as it was all done by hand!:eek

the difference is amazing:jaw-dropping
:thumbsup:thumbsup
thanks! - the effort was definately worth it!.. I should remove/fill a little more of the swirls this weekend with the extra coating of SRP and will be sealed with the AG EGP.. it'll do until I get a machine polisher and correct the paint properly! :)

necta - I agree!! - it's worth the effort though as it's SO much easier to keep it clean when you put the effort in! :)

Buoyed by the results I managed to get by hand I've just this minute invested in a Silverline Random Orbital Sander/Polisher to try and improve the results I've already achieved (as there are still some swirls etc):



and I've bought the Menzerna Orange Polishing Pad and Menzerna Yellow Finishing pad to go with it.... still undecided on polishes.. :)

I was pointed in the direction of this thread on Detailing World which helped me make my mind up! :):

Nice-be careful though cause you can take off the paint and end up with bare metal if you are not :frown
