Talking 6 hour milano detail pic heavy

Well after having my new civic a month it was in dier need of paint renovation.

Was meant to be going to KNOCKHILL today but slept in so was a perfect excuse for a day of detailing

So went to halfords got some 3 for2 goodies and started

The amount of tar on the car was unbelievable and took the most time

So started with a wash and foam
Then stripped all previous waxes
De tarred
G3 clay mitt
G3 scratch remover
Poorboys black hole
G3 resin superwax

Writing it seems so much easier than do it

Really chuffed with the results just what it needed

I will just let the pics doing the talking I went a bit pic happy

Does anyone get this... When you finish a car you can't help yourself but walk past and stroke the back of your hand across a panel to feel the smoothness?
