Love the look of your car  8). Did you machine Polish or do it by hand?

Thanks,spent about 8 hours machine polishing it,clean your car.co.uk do a Das Pro Sonax pack,it has everything you need,the car had some pretty bad scratches and was swirled from top to bottom,I am amazed at the difference,I have now bought a snow foam kit to help keep it nice.

My biggest tip would be make sure the that the pad covered in cutting compound is in contact with the car when you turn it on!
I covered an area of about 8m2,cars,house Windows,all over me ::)
I haven't got enough experience to give advice,Ads or Brian would be the Goto people.
I got a lot of advice from Ads and the guys from clean your car.co.uk gave me a detailed printout of what pad to use with what product and in what order which was a great help.
Get as much good advice as possible,within an hour you will be cutting like a pro👍
The products do the work,the Sonax cutting kit was superb,I can't rate it highly enough,I finished the car with FK1000 and will hardwax it at the end of the week.

Its looking at Chris's results that have got me all excited ;D
 I  have the Autofinesse revitalise kit I bought off the personal sales on DW which has colour coded pads and polish so may start off with that first
