Needed to pull my finger out and crack on with the detailing so I've spent a few evenings on the clay bar panel by panel.
Happy with the results the paint has cleaned up well following de tar and fall out stages.
Now the claying is complete I can start stage 1 of my 2 stage polish.
Time is getting on now so I need to get this done and get the car back on the road now that the worst of winter has passed.

Looks amazing. Good job. A 20 day detail could be a record too!

Don't forget to drive it!

That looks stunning - very impressive.

I usually manage a wash and a coat of meguirs wax - which I am fairly happy with but not even on the same planet in terms of finish.

How about a quick run down on the process and what products you used?
