I started by giving the car blast off with the pressure washer as it only really had light covering of dirt on it, the car was then given its first coat of snowfoam using a mix of megs hyper wash and snowfoam .Whilst this did its stuff I cleaned the wheels using a weak mix of bilberry wheel cleaner and various wheel brushes.

This was then blasted off with the pressure washer, and then the car was given another coat of the same mix snowfoam and washed using Meg’s hyper wash and the 2 bucket method and a wash mitt before being power rinsed off and dried. The lower parts of the car and inner arch lips where sprayed with Tardis which was left to do its stuff before being wiped down with a microfibre cloth

The car was then rinsed off using an open ended hose and left wet before claying using citrus bling and water mix (4 to 1) clay bar. The car was then rinsed and dried. Car was then taped up using 3m masking tape, using the Rejevenate and 3m yellow polishing pads.

After polishing I went round the car again using the Red moose machine glaze.
After glazing my way round the car with the rotary, I applied the first of 2 coats Dodo supernatural wax using a german applicator pad and left to cure before buffing using Poorboys microfibre clothes. Whilst this first coat was curing I polished up the wheels using the Jeff’s prime acrylic applied with a microfibre pad. Once the second coat was applied and left to cure I sealed the wheels with Jetseal 109 and dressed the tyres with a coat of Valet pro tyre dressing. The second coat was then buffed off and car was then given a final wipe down using the red mist, and the glass was cleaned using neat citrus bling.

Leaving me with this.

You very rarely put correction shots in your posts. So you are basically showing that you've listed products and have washed it. Not that you've corrected it as you say you have.

that was for Gally but thanks for the reply matey
 
Not at all. The write up is useful. But correction shots, 50:50s - that's what we're after. More for you to prove/show off your ability to correct a car fella, to be honest.

Nicely done however am i the only one slightly baffled about the taping up around the light and where the bumper meets the wing?

Nice 6N2 Polo, Needs the GTi Projector headlights imo to finish the front end off but that's just me, Great bit of detailing too, Makes a hell of a lot of difference.
