Cheers, been wanting to do it since I got her :-)

Looks a million pounds now, just need to get rid of the chips :-(

If anyone is interested it was clayed with megs clay, cut back with menzerna power finish and polished with menzerna super finish 3000. Then was with waxed with g3 super resin wax :-)

Glad you agree :-) one of the best colours you can get a GT in, in my opinion.

Brilliant result. I must say that I have never heard of G3 Professional Resin Superwax. All the threads on Detailing World concerning this product seem to be a couple of years old. Is it a popular product in the UK?

Not really sure, got a couple of bottles of it a few years back, always been happy with the results :-)

The shine is lasting cleaned today and gave it a top up with the wax as it was starting to lose a little shine but still good.

Tasty colour.
Does it attract much attention when out and about ?
Not much turns heads like a shiny GT !
