it is indeed jim's.... we work together.... got it back today and to say am chuffed is an understatement. As far as know he clayed, then used black hole and AG HD wax... not sure what else but will ask and post it. Just to add to my day came home and found my hekos had arrived so they are fitted now as well. :) as promised a few more pics... minus the blue tape lol

I wouldn't drive that thing on public roads now. You're going to cause an accident, it's far too shiny.

as promised a list of the kit / techinque jim used to detail my baby:

Car was pressures washed, snow foamed & APC mix to strip any recent products

Wheels are going to be refurbed soon so they only got a good clean with AS G101, Vikan brushes etc

Megs LT as a lube & Sonus green clay the car was then re-washed & dried using a waffel towel & Megs LT

Test panel on the bonnet resulted in using a SFX 1 pad & Menzerna final finish on the PC.

sonus swirl buster pad & Menzerna 203S

Rewashed & dried the car after polishing and set about appling Poorboys Blackhole on the PC with a sonus black gloss pad. Then finished it off with a coat of AG HD wax.

and the result can be seen in these pics which arent mine but Jim's
