No, didn't get that far before the light started dying out! :lol: I might do it today. I'll let my toasty go down first!

So does no one use a polisher? Do you all have Hulkesque arms and the patience of a saint?

I'm not using any old cheap polisher. After Christmas I'm buying myself a PC/UDM or the eagerly awaited Meg's polisher, which has been a long time coming, but is 220v so no need for a transformer for the imported 110v. It's got a slightly better spec than the PC/UDM, but that's to be expected being a newer machine.

For now I am using simply arm power :lol: It does get tiring after a wash, dry, clay, wash, dry, paint clean, polish, wax, wheels (which also get clayed, polished and waxed) then all the trim bits.

And Ry, yeah, it does help with the windows. Get's all the bits of crap off them and makes cleaning them alot easier. :)

It does save a lot of time for the big panels! Done your car in about 10 minutes didn't it?

Get any pics then Scott?
