WOW had the car a year already. in that time all I've done is wash it and apply some Gyeon Cure every few washes. its still looking great I've picked up one or 2 marks which will require polishing which I will do at some point and Fancy trying the new Gyeon Synchro so would be worth a one stage polish and then coat again. Car still beads well after 12 months and I don't doubt MOHS will last 2 years. I did spend some time Saturday wet sanding the exhaust tips again as the winter hit them. wet sanded then polished up using metal polish on a shine mate rotary with a small foam pad

Well the time had come to give the car a good cleaning session. After over 12 months of just a washing etc. Friday night after work at 4:30pm I started with cleaning the car followed by tar and fall out remover and then a clay which picked up more than I thought it would, mainly muck with a few tar spots I missed. The car was then dried and taken into the garage to start polishing. No pics of this as I wanted to crack on. The clay had inflicted some marring but not lots and nothing a polishing pad an sonax 04 06 couldn't take care of. I had managed to pickup some random deep scratches on the roof and bonnet plus a few other areas so these were tackled with a purple scholls pad and sonax cut max followed by the 04 06. This combo worked really well and although not all are gone I wasn't chasing deeper ones without a paint gauge. One thing I struggled with last time was the gloss pillars, but this time I had my shine mate which took care of them. Used a heavy cut pad followed by polishing pad and they came up great.

Friday night I finished around 10pm, Saturday morning I started at 9am and finish polishing around 5pm. After wiping the car down with prep and making sure I was happy I started coating with gyeon synchro (mohs part) and got 2 coats on by 10pm.

Sunday morning I started around 10am applying the skin part of synchro which was lovely to work with and makes the paint feel so smooth, can't wait to see it wet! and was done by around 12pm. I then took dogs out for a walk and when I came back I carried on doing the rubber trim and wiper arms etc with Gtechniq c4. Once all done I did the inside and cleaned the glass etc which didn't take too long.

Now the down side of the synchro, putting the number plates back on.... I don't like to use screws so use sticky pads. on the back bumper this was fine as the panel is flat and sticks well. The front one how ever is curved and the pads would not stick to the paint at all. It just kept popping up. In the end I've used 14 sticky pads and managed to get the plate on but in reality only about 5 pads are still making contact but its held firm so far. I'm going to take it off and apply sticky Velcro this week and see if that holds up better.

few pics of the after polishing part.








and post coating taken this morning as I forgot yesterday (well was knickered)
