Show us your bonnet/hood.

I noticed that a lot of guys concentrate on polishing their bonnet/hood more than any other spot. Probably because you can really see your work there.

So let us see those reflections. I know mine is not quite up to standard yet, but its a start.

This was mine a year or so ago. Looks a bit better now, must take a photo sometime.

Wow, thats some shine and reflection you got there! I hear black cars are the worst for showing the dirt but when done, and done properly they look the best.

Nice job!

Some very impressive bonnets there guys. Glad its not just me a little OCD with it.

Did really well too to get back the bonnet from the chemicals staining.

I have contemplated giving the car a ceramic coating but the prep is beyond me at the moment.

Cueball that bonnet looks a little familiar ..............

I spend most my time on the doors and sides of the car cause thats what I usually see parked outside my house or walking across a car park so if theres any defects they bother me all day every day! Thats how I got into detailing - because I could see some weird 'defect' in the paint on my freshly washed car when I looked out of the window, which was wash marring

I usually reverse into parking spots and thus the rear of my car is definitely the worst





This was just after a single stage with menz 3500 and DSW
