Okay tomorrow I will be doing the work I mentioned in my previous posts
Starting with the bonnet, then the RHF guard, roof and then the doors

The process will be

2500 and 3000 grit hand wet sand
machine correction to remove sanding marks
involves Prima cut or Prima swirl
then Menzerna Intensive Polish and 106FF
Menzerna PO85RD ceramiclear finishing polish

normally I would do an alcohol wipedown at this stage to remove the oils from 85RD and apply Blackfire Gloss enhancing glaze and Prima Amigo, which both do a magnificent job of darkening the colour shade of dark cars and without silicone, plus preparing the paint for a sealant

I will try and do some videos too, it's hard doing them by myself, keeping me ugly mug away from the camera lens, working out the best angle to shoot from and controlling noise

Why cant you be in Vic I would be there in a heart beat. :cry:


Hey Slo man. colac ain't that far, just put the car on an enclosed truck/trailer and I'll do the job and have it trucked back. hehe

Australian muscle car sales are bringing an XW GT from sydney to store before the GT nats here in adelaide. I might be able to have them trucking over cars for me to do if my detailing demonstration impresses them


Ha. Yeah know worries mate is the freight included in price. :wink:

It would be interesting to know how much it would cost to do that
it's $880 for a car to go from WA to adelaide
