First I must sort out how to post pictures
Took ownership of a Sparkly new Kuga Vignale in White Mettalic Pearl two weeks ago
My first brand new car in 11 years.
First white car in 30 years
First wash today after work so not much time.
Not enough time for snow foam pre wash this time
Treated myself to new Dooka pads, some bigger wash buckets and am trying some Sams Wheel brushes (how to use them without getting splattered in the dirty water I will need to learn.) trying the brushes as well as the Wheel Woolies on the calipers mostly. I cannot get my hands onto the barrels either.
I have had to purchase some small steps as the Kuga is a full foot taller than the Focus it has replaced
Done around 400 miles so the wheels were quite covered in brake dust and the car not too bad. A couple of hours later wheels and bodywork all clean. No protection as yet as it is now dark and the temperature has dropped.

Cleaned the Windows on the new run about, believe it or not was about a week ago it was washed (some greasy finger prints on door pillar as it's just got back from a cambelt change as i dare not risk it at 11 years old) had a full decon and quick polish and seal with AG EGP in need of some correction but will have to see when i can do it.

Washed and put some sonax pns on the old man's fiesta yesterday. Dead easy to use, I think my days of waxing are over. Spray sealants are the way to go for me.

Been helping out my cousin turning a very very pink Suzuki Alto back to red as he will be selling it. I didnt take enough pics of this one, started last Sunday afternoon but the light was pretty crap...













Wool pad and Menz powergloss cut through all the crap faded paint but left a lot behind. Orange CCS pad with Menz 2200 finished it down very nice after that. The last pic was after I'd finished machining. That pads getting a good wash before it goes near another car....school boy error putting it pad side down

Cracking turnaround indeed.

Do I take it that after all your effort and time, the polisher/pad placement mistake was due to simply being knackered?
