Re: GP Sporting

I used Bilt Hmaber Clay which only needs water to use and it worked amazingly I only used a quarter of the clay for the whole car

The bilberry cleaner comes undiluted so comes just in a pour bottle.

Were you doing it today? @sammclean23

Re: GP Sporting

Update:

Spent hours washing, claying, polishing and waxing and this is the end result.
Took a whole picture but the best in my opinion are the close up of the mirrored bodywork now




The last picture is one with the before and after of using Back to Black Gel which is amazing never knew how grey it was until now

What do you all think?

Re: GP Sporting

I know my car looked **** before

Mine was not too bad certain areas were worse than others such as the wheels and the doors because of the brake dust attaching when coming from wheels. Now we hae a clean slate to work from though it should be alot easier to keep it lookin this good all the time

Only problem is girlfreind wants me to do her car now

Re: GP Sporting

I used the Mantis on mine and it made the scratches look alot better but I wasnt expecting miracles so it was good to be honest just keep at it, going to use a touch up pen on the bonnet for the stone chips

Hopefully get it all ship shape and sorted to keep it that way, just thought if I ever go and buy another car now I will be unbelievably picky

Re: GP Sporting

Not good purple is just slightly off colour

Ive got a Fiat Original one with mine that I got Evans Halshaw to buy me when I first bought the car so mines all good might do it this weekend when I clean the car again.
