So to finish off the Meguiars Dual Action Polisher G220 with the above ingredients are awesome, however I now have total respect for the pro-detailers and the work involved!! I am knacked requiring a 4 week holiday after doing the bonnet!!

So when the car comes back the the garage, I will be completing the rest of the car.

Simply, WOW.

Shaun that looks fantastic, a true mirror-like finish.

WOW.. that's you hooked then :D

Absolute cracking job there... how much better does it come up after the finishing polish? :biggrin:

Did it all come together then?

How come your on here anyhow... stop slacking and get on with the rest ready for the bumper etc to go on.

Also... if you are tempted to do the bumper when its back.. DON'T. It will still have loads of chemicals in it that need to come out and dry/harden. Leave it 2months then do it.

Well impressed.

Great results Shaun, good to see you're getting to grips with the polisher.

It's very satisfying when you achieve a finish like that by yourself! :congrats:
