I mean not even a first timer with a bucket and dirty sponge could create such a monstrosity of a finish!!

Have to say though, the depth and clarity of the colour once you had completed the job are stunning!!
No the car came to me after my best client collected the car from Mclaren london.

I assume that was the car I saw at Waxstock?

As I keep saying I'm a novice at this so I dont really know what Im talking about but like all the other comments I am simply astonished at the quality of the paintwork in the before photographs, they are honestly appalling and just about the level I would have expected to have achieved a few months ago (before I joined this forum).

Having seen the after images I am astonished at the level of quality that is possible, whilst I have no inclination to ever be at your level I do want to make my car look as pretty as possible (and thanks to Kempe I have at least got an idea of how to go about improving it).

If I'm honest I believe I could have done better than the before shots with just the small amount of knowledge I have picked up in the last 2 months and given a hundred years or so I honestly believe I STILL couldn't get close to the quality of your after shots!

Its a truly fantastic car in every way NOW but I think I would have been dissapointed with it in the condition it was in prior to your enhancement.

Great work Paul! Why You use Bigfoot, not rotary like Flex? I personally use rotary not DA because it more faster and finish polish better IMO, or Bigfoot is better than rotary? And soundtrack's is awesome, tracklist Please. Thank's.

The finish is better using a DA.

I don't know how hard is the Mclaren's clearcoat, but if medium or soft, the bigfoot is fine, no need for a rotary.

Who knows, to busy worrying about the floor tiles matching in the building I think

Here's a little side view I got of the Mclaren after its first wash after 800 miles...
