Cool 5 hours detailing car today

As some of you know i have had my civic for just under a week now, today is the first i have had a chance to give it a good going over

the previous owner did not look after the paint work at all, it was as if he washed the car with a scourer, the scratches and swirls were unbelievable as you can see from the pics wasn't a pretty sight when the sun light hit it.

so got up early this morning and got stuck in

first gave it a quick wash to take most of the crap off
then i went over the full car with G3 compound with the machine buffer
then Autoglym ultra deep shine
also used Autoglym bumper care
and Autoglym custom wheels
i am quite chuffed with the result considering before

what you think?
cheers
