It's that extra bit that makes it worth while.

The best solution is to have the glass rubbed with the breasts of virgins, but being in essex, not many of them araound.

:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Just finsihed the top part of teh car.

Now come the strakes which take ages.............

Only use the clay bar and HD cleanse once.

Then it's just a matter of applying as many coats of zymol as possible. :thumbsup:

Spent about 16 hours, split over 3 days, on mine so far.

2 x clay bar, 2 x HD cleanse plus 1 coat of Zymol. Just got the sills to do now and I have to say I'm bloody sick of doing it, my back is killing and I feel sick :thumbsdow

Looking good though :thumbsup:

Sorry to butt in guys but I am having the bumper and bonnet resprayed in a couple of weeks due to stone chips.I then want to get Dave out to make it gleam but was wondering how long after the painting this could be done?

Dave?

Not sure Mark,SteveW or Dave will know.

Older paints used to be about two weeks,new paints may be different.

Zymol's microporous so it allows the paint to breath and cure naturally , probably best to leave it about 4 to 6 weeks though, just so the paint hardens off nicely , reducing the risk of scratching the soft paint.:thumbsup:
