Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

My attempt on Nouveau Red. I'll never be able to compete with Jono though.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Process: (basically just wash, dry, polish, wax)

Rinse

Wash using Triplewax car shampoo (Dad buy's it and it's all we've got in the house)

Rinse

Dry with Autoglym water blade, and poorboys waffle weave.

Polish using Autoglym super resin.

drive for two days, break engine, and let stand for a week. :lol:

repeat wash & dry process,

Apply Clearkote Carnauba Moose Wax.

Enjoy 8-)

its defo one of the better colours in my mind

if you lived nearer id say pop it round for a go with the PC :)

how do you find those water blade things?
ive never been a fan to be honest because i think they will just drag dirt across yer paintwork causing scratches
