    Hi all

    A few weeks back i posted about the full detail i did on the wife's car (Civic). I wanted to practice/learn before doing my 8th Generation Accord Tourer. After 9-10hrs yesterday, i am happy with the end result, allbeit i am cream crackered today! :Smile:

    Here's the full process and pics:

    - Pre wash with Autobrite Magifoam and left to dwell for 5mins
    - Thorough rinse of wheels and body with powerwasher
    - Two bucket wash using Megs Shampoo Plus
    - Thorough rinse
    - Tar removed using Autosmart Tardis
    - Car de-iron'd using IronX
    - Car clay'd using G3 Pro Body Clay Mitt
    - Car dried using large microfibre drying towel
    - Car polished with Kestrel DAS6 with Scholls S17 and yellow Meguiars polishing pad
    - Car waxed with Collinite 845 insulator wax
    - Wheels dressed with Meguiars Tyre Gel
    - Plastic Trim dressed with Autobrite Trim Protectant

    Some thoughts post detail:

    - Car had reasonably bad swirls from previous owner and managed to remove the majority. Didn't manage to removed all or some light scratches. I think i might need to use a more aggressive pad and/or compound first to get this level of correct? Or should i have continued to work an area with more passes than the 3-4 passes i did on each area (where a full pass east-west-north-south)?
    - Scholls S17 is a good polish for correction but i found it a good bit harder to remove than M205

    Thanks again to @wanner69 for his help/guidance on doing the detail.
