  • Subaru Detail

    The Subaru Impreza was dropped of at 8.30am and wanted it back by 12.30...

    So the pressure was on to give the suby a quick correction in 4 hours..

    I started by using Meg 205 with black pad on the festool, but still not removing enough scratches. Then tried Optimum Polish II on black pad, getting better results but very sticky. I then mixed both the Meg 205 / Optimum Polish II and got the results I was looking for.

    After that process gave the suby a once over with Optimum GPS on black pad.

    Gave it a coat of Prima Amigo and finished at 12.15... the things we do for the love of it..

      The thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, early in the morning or late at night. The thing you read about, write about, think about, fantasize about. that thing you do alone and theres no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue. Thats it, thats your thing, thats your heart , your guide, Thats the thing you must, must do.

        Great job, I know how you feel with the paint being a arse!

            Excellent work! Not easy to get that paint right.

            I used GPS for the first time yesterday, really liked it!

              Wow ...what a result ....

              would take me that long to wash it and wax it....

              forget about paint corrections and dressing it ....

                Excellent results. Owners of it must have no idea what a proper detail consists of if they only allowed 4 hours. Nevertheless great work.

                  Pfft, I would have told him he's dreaming.

                  Top work mate but it must pain you to not have the time to fully caress the panels. Foreplay only sucks. (sometimes)
