my new GT big clean

After my purchase of the GT friday , i call her bella

i started my big clean this weekend not a 100% swirl /scratch removal but enough to reduce 75% of defect as there a lot to do. i have a machine polisher or porter cable if you want to call it that.

my selection
z auto wash
clay - megs
polish - menz final finish
glaze - clearkote red moose
wax - collinite 915

interior
CG silk
wolfgang carpet restore
and halfords brand leather car lol ( sorry didnt have anything else )

some before shots





urgh like fungus on the roof rack rails





all finished now quite pleased with the results



exterior












engine


interior

Re: my new GT big clean

Good job there. Red is the best colour for a GT (but then I'm biased)

How long have you had it?
