Looking good matey ,very nice finish , did it take you long ?

Took me about an hour and a half to two hours, as went over it a few times, that was after I had washed it and leathered it off. It then got another wash after claying and then re-leathering and then finally a rub down with Meguiars polish. In all about 4 hours work - but worth it (y)

nice job tim want to do mine ? Lol

If you weren't so far away Paul..lol.. Actually I valet peoples cars on my days off - I do friends and work colleagues. I put up a post a couple of weeks ago showing some of the cars that I had done - and that was before I knew about Clay bar..lol... I normally charge £30 for a small/medium car (inside & outside done) and £40 for a larger car (both inside and outside done). I have another 2 or 3 people booked in within the coming months who want their cars done.

as a pro valter, how do you get the awkward bits of fluff out, you know, between the door and the seat? Do you physically rub the clay as it is on the car or do you use water with it? I have seen the results, and i like

Are you talking about the sill area Si ? You can use the Clay bar with the application fluid where ever - giving perfect results. Before now I just use Meguiars spray polish and a couple of clean polishing cloths, one for applying the polish and the other for buffing it to a perfect shine.
