"Blind" Polish - Ibiza Cupra

No, I haven't lost my eye sight!

For anyone who's worked on a light coloured car such as my Arctic Silver Ibiza Cupra, you will know how much of a pain it is to catch swirls.

TBH, my car has minimal swirls, but I would like it looking as pefrect as possible ready for SCN National Meet in 2 weeks, and Edition 38 in September.

In the past, I've tried using my mates garage to machine the car, and a halogen lamp, but it was still too bright to see anything! Even joked about using my mates yard at 10pm lol...

Anyway, enough chit chat! I did my mates Mk4 Ibiza (Red) using the Menz Polishing pad (orange) and 3M polish. This gave good results, but left a few minor marks. So goin from that (and a quick call to Rich @ Polished Bliss), I decided to go straight onto the Menz Compound pad (white) and Menz 3.02.

I only did the roof, so I could have a look later in the night under street lighting how well it worked.

Anyway, here's some pictures. Sorry about the quality, swirls only show up well at night under street lights, and only had phone camera with me

After:







I'll be doing the rest on saturday with any luck
