Shiny Milano

With the decent weather yesterday and being off thought I would give the car a more thorough clean. Started off with Magifoam and left to dwell on the car about 20 min, find this alot better than previous foam I have used. Rinsed off then used Tardis get rid of tar spots, next I would normally use Megs Gold Class Shampoo (2 bucket method) but this time used washing up liquid strip back the old protection. Could have used clay but will save that for next time. Next was 2 coats of ASRP, then to finish the day 2 coats of Jetseal 109. If I get chance over the weekend will get some wax on top, is that really necessary? (normally use Collinite)

Pics were taken on camera phone so not best quality, the beading shots were from today, hence the wax question.

Any advice/comments appreciated.

Almost identical to mine, but mine has what i believe to be the city pack (rubbing strips) added, Yours puts mine deeply in the shade - looks mint, Mine could do with sorting out/tidying up a wee bit (lacquer is lifting on 3 wheels!)

Shame they don't stay looking that clean though eh!

Good job mate, looks mint.

Typical, spend hours getting it looking good one day then it pisses with rain the next.

You can't see the swirls in the pics! Lol.
Thought about getting the city pack but is alot for what they are, think it adds to the style tho.
