Yesterday I had my first go and using a clay bar, HD Cleanse and Zymol wax and I think the results are pretty impressive. I've only done the bonnet so far but the rest will follow.

Here's a couple of pics ...

I tend to disagree with our in house "brain of britain", Paul.
I would personally wash, clay, cleanse and wax, all within a twenty four hour period.
Remember that once the car is washed, mr. grit and mr. dust particle become very attracted to your pride and joy ... there is then a danger that these horrors could then be polished back into your paintwork with further processes .... however, once the car is waxed mr. dust and his pals simply slide off.

:cheers: d

ps ... car looks superb.

dearest steven.
to wash, and clay, and cleanse, and wax (let's say) the door once the adjacent wing has been finished is not very clever/possible .... is it ?
unless of course, you're going to completely mask off the wing using the newspaper that last nights pie & chips came home in ?
(sorry for the hijack/distraction, Paul)

Well, that's the way I do it, except I wash the whole car once then I use quick detailer on a panel at a time instead of washing - but I see no reason why you can't wash a panel.

I do it a panel at a time: quick detail panel, clay, hd cleanse x2, wax. It doesn't matter if you accidentally hd a place you've just waxed, coz you can 'accidentally' wax it again afterward.

Start at the top of the car and work your way down.

My solution to keeping unwanted dust from the car in between panels is to put her under her new blanket ...
