That is some serious depth of gloss on a silver car, looks great Phil.

My kind friend has lent me his SQ5 whilst my car is out of action.

Finally had a chance to sort it out as the weather was good yesterday, its still not 100% sorted but happy with it at the moment

-Mild correction with lime prime light by a PC, was surprised how well this worked and the flake has really come out now
-PB Black Hold Glaze with PC
-Z-CS and Z8 mix (found this combo gives a great finish) was going to use some Collinite but it was getting dark too quick

SQ5 by VMBML, on Flickr

Preparation for winter comes so I decide to start my Rupes LHR15 Mark II and LH19E together with some Rupes Keramik and Diamond gels.
Protection was done with two layers of Dodo Juice Black Widow wax and final result can be seen on the photos.
It seems that Rupes and Dodo Juice did great job.

Are those graphics on the door from the factory. Or did you put them on yourself. Are they raised. Cos I could imagine it being difficult to work around the lettering.

Graphics are after market ones but premium quality ones so I use masking tape without fear it will tear them.

Wash followed by application of Wax Planet Nuba glaze and a squirt of their Poly Gloss on the top.
Liked the glaze very much, loving the Poly Gloss.

What detailing did you do today??

So I got given a 2nd hand company car .... low mileage ... what could go wrong ?

Went to collect and it was black and had spent 5 years going to the wash n scratch I don't think I'd ever seen paintwork as bad on a new car !

So suns out ... full wash and decon and thought I'd have a go at the passenger door ....

Rupes Duetto and mostly yellow pad and Keramik compound but had to move up to green pad and Zephir for the bonnet and roof which were a disgrace.

Here's what I was faced with



Hours later and with a coat of Essence









Not perfect but it's a start !

Simon
