    Accidentally took my first steps into the world of OCD today...
    Had planned on giving the motor a damn good going over this afternoon, but after a couple of hours of this yesterday my arms were screaming.

    Thought to myself, I'll just have a quick shot of my new snow foam lance...

    Arms held out fairly well, so I gave it a quick hand wash as well

    After a drying with Megs water magnets, the arms formally registered their disapproval, but I must go on. Out with the Poorboys Black Hole...

    Kinda committed by this point, so ignoring the lactic acid pouring into my arms, I buffed the Black Hole off & went over it with Dodo Juice Blue Velvet.
    Finished it off with Poorboys Wheel Sealant & Megs Endurance tyre gel. Arms soon to be traded in for scrap, but Darth Vader is looking just fine.

    Liking that sir, not that I am biased for black cars!

    That last image is top drawer - I'm pretty drawn now to the black 19" Cursa wheels!

    Almost hurt my eyes. :Wink: Black cars are looking soooo good when done! Great job done, sir!!

    Here it was on and off raining all day. I still need a few dry hours to apply a second coat sealant on our car.

    Black cars always look awesome fully polished up (not that I am biased either @TheDarkKnight :Laughing:)

    Great job, well done.

    Thanks for the feedback guys, wasn't quite the marathon 2 day detailing effort I've seen from some of you but considering the nick of my arms it was as much as I could take.
    Took about 5 hours start to finish and I'm quite pleased with my first attempt at a real clean.
    Naturally, I woke up this morning to a fresh peppering of bird sh!t on the bonnet :Sobbing:

    Thanks for the heads up about Black Hole, the black really started popping after just 1 coat, and the Dodo Juice took it to another dimension :dribble:

    "BLACK..."
    black.
