Now stop spending hours polishing and then taking pics with a phone cam!!!

I'm just resizing some just-polished pics I took today, gonna post 'em later [:)]

Sat, take the car somewhere interesting for a photoshoot like you did last time. It'll look even better.

innit lol... It only took me an hour and a bit to wash and polish not bad considering it normally takes me around 50 mins to clean my car properly... I would love to take it to same location.. but il look a bit odd when all the business men are walking around and im stood there taking pics of a golf lol... heres a pic of sonnys car in the same location... we're trying to arrange a meet there for the brummies [:p] and get some nice photos happening..

I used one once before when i was 15 [:O] lol on my dad beemer but at that time i never really knew what i was doing... but now i sort of know lol.. i really want to test my skills and methods on a dark coloured car.. as thats the best way as with silver its hard to tell if you've taken all the swirls/cobwebs out of the paintwork.. reflex silver needs some harsh lighting to show the minor blemishes...

Thanks again for your comment [y]

p.s. i don't like parking my car next to more modified golfs (lowered ones) as it makes my car look even more 4x4 lol..

Looking good!! [:D]

Now get some of the Harly wax from Essex and get all the hard work sealed in!!

If you get a Birmingham meet going, I might even pop down to join the reflex silver brigade! [H]

Im gonna try some more polishing first before i seal the finish.. as im not 100% happy with the finish as there are still some swirl marks but i wasn't expecting to remove all of them as i never used an aggressive compound etc.. i only used a mild polish which was good but not good enough... so i may go again at the affected areas with something slightly more harsher to see if it removes the swirls.. and as many people have mentioned vag paint is quite hard [:p]
