    Garnz have a look around cleanyourcar.co.uk and see what take's your fancy and have a look at the members rides on the forum and see what products/results people are using to get an idea of what you like.
    You can end up spending a huge amount of £££ on that website, so got to decide how far you want to take it lol! I've been talking to my dad who just got his new car and already the bill for the basic stuff for what he needs/wants has come to just under £60 but it's worth it compared the stuff you get in Halfrauds.
    Any questions give me a shout if you like. Sure other folk on here to that would be happy to help.

    Looking awesome Matt! Shame we live 20miles apart with a very dirty road in between cause I was doing mine today so would have been good to do it together! I'm about to put a very expensive order into cleanyourcar! Zaino stuff this time I think, gonna be skint lol! Can't wait to try out the Optimum No Rinse shampoo though :)

    Cheers for the comments guys.

    Rob I'd love to come down. Honestly!

    Garnz just give me a shout if you want any help. Especially to try and get the best out of the bloody colour!

    They are just wee detailing brushes, I have many! Nothing special though, a paint brush would do, just have to watch out for the metal part on them.

    Stu yeah I do it on the side just now for fun.

    For what I've done to mine, Including glass inside and out door shuts and hoover and doing the trims and a shampoo of the interior I'd charge around the £100 mark. Depending on vehicle and how badly soiled it was.

    Yeah I was thinking of telling you about that, as it suit your situation perfectly. I would still be apprehensive of ONR, it's just not right wiping over a dirty car without water! :lol:

    Yeah i need some stuff to, got a nice £50 gift voucher to use too.

    I found the DJ Blue Velvet Pro Edition really brings out the orange in my colour. It's mad. I've kinda noticed it before but more now.

    Will get some more, better pics up soon. Also with the beading, as it's bound to rain soon.

    Wait till i get my snow foam and I've covered the street. Then they will!

    Yeah i got mine for free so it not too bad, will probably use it a few more time then sell it on. Try something else. Really fancy swissvax onyx!

    No need to cut, well not yet, it's to cold for doing it out doors. And a machine polisher is next on the list. Mainly as I've got a friend wanting his car corrected.

    I just stand really far back and take the pictures :thumbs:

    God, I wish I'd never sold that car... lol

    My new (V-reg) carmine Red phII is not nearly as good as T750 MVW.... Come to think of it: I should never have sold my Autech either.... :-(
