Nice work mate, looks spot on.

Have to say, of all the GTR's i've detailed red is definately the best colour for them.

I favour a flat pad for correction and find these break the polish down fully opposed to some waffle, dimple etc.. pads.
I'm not a fan of hard cutting foams, and would rather do further sets of passes to remove the defect, this is where my favourite pad the yellow light cut performs extremely well.
The blue finishing pad is also very nice and probably one of the best I've used.

Cheers Neil, you need to try the 3m glass foam, if your like me and hate cleaning glass this is a must, rarely get any smears from it and can be used in the sun, I find I get better results from a decent coverage to the glass.
