    Cool 348KYD's 348 - Full Paint Correction

    Firstly apologies to Nick for not posting these pics until now, I just haven't had the time!

    The car was quite badly swirled and scratched but considering its age and the fact that it was all original paint thats what you would expect.

    The process:

    No wash required so just cleaned the dust off with QD
    Clay bar
    Paint depth readings: 40 microns all round, totally original
    Intensive polish with cutting pad
    Final polish with medium pad
    Cleanse
    Wax

    Big thanks to Nick for supplying tea, biscuits, bacon sarnies & even offering me a Courvousier but sadly I was driving!
