Great result!
Good to see a hand detail on an everyday car - I'm not knocking the pros I've learnt a lot from them, but machine polishers and jet washers are not for everyone ��

Top work monkfish on a lovely Clio, car has come up a treat and it's pretty darn good for a first detail. You deserve a beer on me.

That looks likely absolutely fantastic job to me!! I can't believe you did it by hand, it looks as if it was machined to perfection. I'd be very proud of myself if I achieved results like that.

Well done bud.

I dont even have access to running water, so its up and down stairs with many many buckets and watering cans! I always do things the hard way...

Thanks dude. I have never polished/clay'd or waxed a car before this. I have also worked for a few main car dealers, so I also have picked up a few tips on how not to sort your paint too! I will get the tins in on the weekend!

Thank you! I didnt think I had done such a great job, as everyone on here really knows what they are talking about. The only downside to doing it by hand was the loss of use I had of my arms the next day!
