The reason being the cats black again... ive spent the last 3 days detailing her.

very very nice. I am going to have a go at giving cat2 a good going over prior to Harewood. I won't quite see the benefit as you have with an ebony car, but i do want to learn to do this.

The car has always had potential and I must say it has fully fulfilled it. With a bit of time and effort

wow!

What products/ equipment did you use to clean it?

Thanks mate, first I rinsed,foamed then washed. Then went over the car with a clay bar and then dried..... next I used a das 6 polisher with a lake country cutting pad (thanks Paul/shagmonkey for the tip) with menzerna power gloss polish, menzerna power finish with a menzerna medium pad, then auto glym super resin polish on a menzerna finishing pad, then 2 coats of colinite 476s wax... and that was just the outside lol
