    Lol

    Think I already posted one of the combo I did a while ago.

    That came out nice and surprisingly not many swirl marks considering how soft the paint on a Vauxhall is lol

    Good job CNS , my old man has a rover 45 colour is metallic blue but where it hasn't been cleaned for a while and sat under a tree the paintwork feels rough and looks dull, he had it cleaned by the polish down the road but paintwork at back looks dull still. I said for a Father's Day gift I will clean it and polish it! Would t-cut be a good option then polish or just polish?

    Id need to inspect it to advise best.

    Your best bet is a rotary polished used by a trained person in a 2-3 stage process, but that will cost lol.

    Before polishing you will need to wash it , clay it and if possible, de tar it

    I would recommend if doing yourself, scholl concept s17 polish (£12 on eBay) using a medium scholl hand polish pad. After that wash it again and then treat it to some dodo purple haze wax (panel pot will do
    It, they about £6)

    Remember with these products, less is more.

    Avoid tcut
