Took the plunge and did clay work for first time, really easy and bodywork feels so much better.

Think next will do a full polish but not brave enough for machine yet lol

Looks great I would love a pure grey TCR.

If you've got a Dual Action polisher have no fear, there's little risk with them.  :smiley:

Thanks, it is a lovely car and even a neighbour with a new M4 came by and said so as I was working and a bit surprised at the 365 🤣

I’ll give the hand polish a go first and then try next stage. My wife Keeps seeing packages arrive and it’s “what now for the car?!” Lol can’t wait to see her face next week when the new auto hose arrives with all the other car detailing things lol

thank you for the comments. It's sitting on KW V3 Coilovers and with some rear 10mm H&R spacers. I'll be honest, i don't know the actual height measurement as i left that to the garage that installed it to sort out the stance. I am yet to have a measure up

Spent 2 1/2 hours on car this afternoon. Snow foam wash, rinse and dry. De-tar, clay bar. Then snow foam wash, rinse and dry again followed by polish and ceramic spray. Quite proud of the result.

Even more pleased with the result after we had sudden hail stones, snow then rain 30 mins ago! Looked outside at my car and it’s nine dry and spotless, wife car different story! I have to say I’m quite impressed with the Autoglym products and especially the ceramic spray! It looks like I have had a massive umbrella over my car and dried off as soon as it stopped getting wet!

One major, MAJOR FLAW!! Wife said “Oh thanks! Look at the state of my car! When are you going to do it like yours?!” 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

if you're good you might get a bit of apple crumble as a reward for cleaning her car  :wink: Should try a bit of Polish Angel Rapidwaxx next time you're in the market for a new quick detailer, you won't regret it.
