    the black rocker cover has lifted the engine nicely i think. the rear lamps look good too. i member on Sam's old trop they go well with the body kolor

    Not been clayed yet! This time I used AG SRP and sealed it with Collinite 476s, but the 476s isn't performing as i'd like so I'm going to be geting some new stuff soon;)

    Just trying to get an idea of what products are giving what finish on this car just now so that it give me a base to know what to use for other peoples ;) So mine is being a bit of a guinea pig lol

    it is a really difficult colour for products to improve I found, out of the selection I used.

    did get some pretty good gloss on it though : )

    Yeah it is a nightmare colour, should get some good tips next week when meeting a few professional detailers ;)

    I'm Happy with what i have achieved so far without claying or machine polishing.

    Very sexy motor. Them rear lights everyone has are 100000x better than the UK ph2 lights. Why on earth the UK version didn't get them.

    I do like them but i don't dislike the phase 2's. Nice to have options to choose from so will probably swap back and forth. lol

    Not sure if this will interest anyone but this is my collection of cleaning stuff I have acquired, but haven't got near half of the stuff i want/need.

    I was just sorting it out as I'm going to be starting to Valet a few cars soon.

    Still got to get Dodo Juice shampoo, Dodo juice Wax and maybe a Swissvax wax if i'm feeling flush.

    Oh and need some clay and Detailing spray, oh the list is endless lol.

    Well it's taken me the last two months to collect that stuff, It's just trying to gauge what stuff i want to use on my own car mixed with what is cost effective for customers cars and easy to use too.

    That zymol stuff looks lovely but the Swissvax is expensive enough for me.

    Oh got to try and save for a van now too to put it all in.
