Hello from a newbie

Hello all.

I'm not exactly new to Detailing world but for some reason (after loosing my password) I couldn't receive the reset password emails so eventually set up a new account.

I've been hovering around for the past 10 years + but have never properly detailed a car...yet.

I've picked up a 6 year old Audi a6 s-line 6 weeks ago and it's in need of some proper TLC. Swirls and light scratches all over it. Dark metallic colour which isnt shining at all.

I had thought of taking it to a local business, paying £300+ to get it professionally polished etc, but have decided I'd have a go myself.

I'll no doubt be asking loads of question in the right forums (hopefully the right forums) so please go easy on me if some of the questions sound stupid. I'm learning 😉

Thanks for now

Chris

Welcome from a fellow newbie. I am toying with the idea of employing a detailer to come and correct the paintwork, and then keep on top of it.

Warm welcome to the Forum plenty of help offered on here, remember there is not a silly question only a silly answer
My Audi Daytona Grey comes up a treat and your dark metallic paintwork should do the same
