Thumbs Up 159 Sparkling!

A few weeks of the summer left so thought I would get the paintwork sealed up for the winter.

Started off with a snow foam wash and dry,
Followed by a clay bar using Mothers Instant Showtime Detailer,
Polishing was done using the Meguiars DA machine,
Was cut first using Ultimate Compound,
Then polished up using Poorboys World Black Hole (The best you can get IMO)
Then sealed up with Ioncoat Naviwax Ultimate Premium Carnauba Wax.

All in all it got spoiled for a day!
A few pics to show how its looking.

And no doubt it was dirty by the time you got home - the punishment of black.

Does have a nice finish and +1 for PBW products, I do like Black Hole Glaze followed by their EX-P sealer.

I'll have to get the DA out on my wife's black VW at some point for it look amazing, until its driven and comes back looking dirty again
