Thanks all, for someone who doesn't really like to be told hes wrong, I can fully admit I wasn't following the correct process, and taking enough time over panels. I now feel as though I'm going back to school and going to watch every one of his videos start to finish haha!

UPDATE

Managed to squeeze in some more hours over the weekend on this, and absolutely stunned how its turned out, however I must admit, for being black, it hasn't got the deep black colour I would have liked, I'm not sure if it's just too shiney, the paint itself, or the product I'm using (Meguiars Ultimate range), I'm sure someone will correct me.

Anyway, without further delay:

Reflection shot A


And further out


Final prep

Great Job!
I have a white car which IMO never looks that shiny - yet the other day we parked in a car park as far away from all the other cars as usual. When we came back, we were flanked by two white cars - one of which was nearly brand new. My car suddenly looked super shiny and reflective compared to the other two! Yet mine hadn't been washed for two weeks and was a bit dusty too!

So perhaps we get too critical????

Haha, this ALWAYS happens to me, honestly p me off so much!

Possibly is, nothing is ever good enough. However, my car is white aswell, and I tend to find it never really looks shiney unless its sitting where things are reflective, it's only then I realise how clean the car looks!

Thanks very much. I finished it off with a coat of Meguiars Ultimate Liquid Wax, and then tested with the old garden hose water feed to see some nice instant sheeting of water, can get through the waxing fairly quickly, so maybe give it another coat just to be sure.
