I’m not going to lie when I first read the thread title I though ‘this sounds like an unmodest post if I’ve ever seen one’ but obviously reading through I can see your clearly an enthusiast and perfectionist who wanted to share. Those are some really nice and clean cars inside/out & underneath which really was the extra bit for me very rarely are cars that clean underneath in this country.

Thank you very much everyone for your kind comments, appreciate them all!!!
I'm glad the thread didn't come out the wrong way.
I get the cars up on a ramp, jet wash them, then spray viro-sol to the underneath and jet wash it again. In some places I use a brush depending how dirty the car is. Once it's all dry I check which parts need touching up and paint them.

As for polishing, once I used clay bar, I then polished the car with 3m polish.... fast cut, ultrafine, extra fine plus.
Polishing pads I used meguiars pads, cutting, polishing, finishing.
And then sealed the paint with autobright zonyl PTFE

Thanks for the info above. Feedback on the tyre walls...to me, the large walled tyres at the back look slightly better and I guess will be less prone to punctures.
