Glorious sunny day, clean the CTR again?!......why not!

Lovely day for a spot of cleaning! Have been using autogym super resin polish for many years, decided to try out ultra deep shine as halfords have a 3 for 2 on at the mo!! quite impressed with the results! Still really want to try out some clay though, just too tight to shell out for some

looks fantastic mate, can't beat a shiny black CTR

Ultra Deep Shine is good stuff, it brings NHB / Crystal Black up a treat, although I find it does produce rather a lot of dust which makes you want to clean the car all over again..!!

Cheers

Haha, yeah I did find that- kept blowing it off, only for it to reappear with every swipe! and then it gets stuck to the rear lights due to static!! aaargh. is there anything better to use?

Very easy to do, probably spent more time cleaning them prior to painting.
Must have done them almost 2 years ago and only now could probably be doing with a clean up and another coat of silver.

Nice mate, you should use SRP then use the Ultra deep shine after brings the dark colour cars up even more.
