Ironically i'm into detailing but used the local handwash a few times. I first suspected it might have been too much Optimum Opti-Seal.[/QUOTE]
It would be a crime for me to sit in my car, whilest a guy on anywhere between £2.50 or a fiver per hour to let him wash my car, in some kind of conveyor belt method.
with a dirty spounge aswell!
Never a good idea to use a spounges anyway, they just brush around dirt which will ruin your paint finish.
G3 cutting compond is very good. However, if the car has been re-painted in the passed. Polishing can ruin the paint finish. Best bet is to have a pro take a look, you may find you can make things worse
