    I dont think it had seen much polishing, has been hard graft but at least now it is at the minimum standard i would want it to be. Can only get it better. I am thinking of sending it to a pro detailer to get it back to showroom condition.

    The bloody things are protected over here and nesting on the roof of our workshop.
    Same every year. I proposed putting 380 volt on the roof but my boss said we might kill the window cleaner.

    Fully Clay Barred
    G3 Scratch Remover
    G3 Renovator
    AG Polish
    Black Colour Magic
    AG Polish
    AG High def Polish

    Thanks for that. used the Black Colour Magic after the AG as the odd few stone chips became whitened so i used this to blacken them up again and then used the AG again and avoided those areas. Dont know why you cant see the pics
