Well, was looking a bit flat so 1st birthday for the new paintwork was to make it look new again.

Products used:
Poorboy's Super Slick and Suds
Poorboy's Spray and Wipe
Optimum Clay Bar
Poorboy's Polish with Carnauba Blue*
Poorboy's Nattys Blue Finishing Wax*
Autoglym Glass Polish
Trafalgar Heavy Duty Fall-Out Remover (Wheel Cleaner)
Meguires High-Gloss Tyre Shine

Poorboy's Velvet Smooth Ultimate Finishing Towel XXL
Microfibre polish applicator
Victoria foam wax applicator

* Polish & Wax came as a kit, both absolutely stink of Juicy Fruit gum too :lol:

Anyway, after hearing people rave about claying I gave it ago, took 3 hours but oh my, the results are amazing!

Not entirely sure what the marks were on the boot lid but they're gone now *shrug*

The weather the day before FITP was a bit gloomy but fear not, gazebo saves the day :lol:

Was a bit too busy spending all day polishing and waxing to take any other pictures but here's a couple from FITP that people took to show just how awesome the products are.

And my favourite photo of my car EVER, in the sun in all its glory :drool: :D

No beading photos yet as it hasn't rained since, hope it stays that way too :lol:

It spent most of the day tucked up at the back of the FT stand, but I eventually moved it over with FiestaGuides.co.uk.
