Scrap that.

Wash it, then apply some "Poorboys black hole", then wax it.

And then proceed to do your hair in the mirror like finish that will be your car :)

for mopping i use Sonus SXf1/2/3

Basically a harsh cutting compound then a restoring polish then a finishing polish, took me about 5 hours to do the arosa.

i need some good hard wax though the megs stuff is shit.

i doubt you'll need to go as far as using G3 that stuff is harsh!

Used Poorboys Diamond White and Dodo Juice light fantastic on the car today what a shine!!
