Smile Newby

I am Darran from Varna, Bulgaria.
I have been looking at the forum for a few weeks now and decided its time I introduced myself.
I am British, but have lived in Bulgaria for 5 years now. I currently drive a Q7 in Black, less than 1 year old and it has serious amounts of swirls in the paintwork. At somestage in the near future I will attempt to remove the swirls but obviously I need to learn how.
Any help and advice on best methods, equipment and products would be much appreciated.

Smile Just Arrived

I have.

Been Detailing for many years mainly friends and family, ok cleaning cars but over last 2 years I have been more on the detailing side.

I looked at the forum a few times and I must admitt it is staggeing the knowledge I don't have in particular using a rotery, I some how don't feel comfortable. I need some tuition and that is for starters. A lot of the products I use do have quite a few mentions so I presume I'm on the right track but to all so far your tips are invaluable.

Thank you.

Is this too long winded.

Cool Rolls-Royce Fan!

Many thanks to the people who have put this very useful page together!

I've been in the buisness for many year's and I still learn something about the buisness all the time, mainly from the...Ummmmm...Newbies, as you all say.

I'm looking forward to being a part of this community and hope that I too can be of some help and be helped.

Sincerely in California

Seriously P**sed Off!!!!

Hi All,

I've been lurking on this forum for months now, and have enjoyed all the contributions from members and guests alike, and as a result spent some serious money on detailing products from a number of site sponsors, (i4Detailing, CleanYourCar, NE detailing, Autobrite etc, just to mention a few!) and gained loads of help, advice and knowledge from reading up on stuff. including spending the time to read enjoy ALL the banter on the "alternative random orbital polishers guide" as watched over and carefully monitored by Viper (Big time respect fella..............your commitment and tenacity speaks volumes!...........)


Following on from the advice given in Viper's pet topic I purchased a B&Q MAC Allister DA sander/polisher yesterday, furthered my investigations and decided at that all in all I would not be happy with it and figured I would go the one step further and bite the bullet and order a Kestrel DA online from CYC.

Imagine my suprise when, bearing in mind that these machines (MacAllister DA Random Orbital Sander) are in short supply and end of line, I thought I could either take this back to B&Q and get my money back, or do the honourable thing and offer it to anyone else on the forum at what I paid for it.

Shock Horror........To post an advert on the for sale section is gonna cost me a further £5 dealers registration fee on top of my supposedly free member registration!

Someone is taking the **** somewhere!

Sorry, but my intention of hopefully offering someone from this site who maybe doesn't have the opportunity to visit their not so local B&Q and blag a bargain for some cheap detailing goodies has gone **** up somewhat pear shaped......I'll be posting this on for anyone interested............
