Be it a cracking 50:50 shot, some deep wet look glossy paint or mad crazy popping flake bust out that inner bufty, get out your polishers and show off your shine


Let the people know what you used, how you did it etc as well


It doesnt have to be an ST either but it would be preferred as our members would no doubt like to know how they can get their STs looking amazing


0000 grade wire wool and a blob of Autosol and the exhaust comes up a treat




Iirc I used some polish, my Porter Cable machine, Black Wow and some Poorboys Natty Paste Red wax for this reflection shot in the door

Expecting Clare's clean up of the big bore, that is a shine and a half!
Just for Dave...

Started life like this:



And ended up like this:








Lots and lots and lots of wire wool and Autosol to get rid of most of it. Then finished off with the Brightmax twins for the final shine. Think it took almost week to get it looking like that!

A couple of weeks ago I spent the weekend doing the whole car - interior, engine bay, and the bodywork... Cut back with 3M polish, then refined with Menzerna, both with the DA machine. Then a couple of coats of Dodo Juice Purple Haze Pro. Need to get some better final pictures, but here's one I have got. Can't believe how gorgeous she looks; this pic does not do it any justice.

Alright cheers. I've only just got into polishing/waxing and all that shiz. Those pictures above are just Autoglym Shampoo & Conditioner and Autoglym Super Polish Resin. Will have to invest in the Aqua Wax.
