    Dude you know me I love my sleep and i was up at dawn to get the hours in !!

    November :nea:when you get downtime get a cheap hotel in Leeds we will rip your car into bits in stages and get it tip top! spot on out of the world curry and evening entertainment thrown in .. can't get better than that.

    PS i have a habit of downing cans of beer when detailing..keep me sane..

    I did rope in daughter as a helper and god she is rapid and spot on she will put me to shame she learning the ropes.

    Look at my 8th Generation in the back looking neglected yes the cars needs some attention , they were crying for some TLC.

    I am still not satisfied with the car detail NO where close to my standard..the outlaws were coming today and I was hurrying to finish before they came.

    Thanks bud we will get your sorted soon. TBH detailing to a high level is an expensive hobby and I don't want to boast but I have been buying detailing gear for a good fifteen years and now have all the stuff needed for that result you see.

    Detailing is not all about buying the best gear its the technique and immense patience and attention to detail.. anyone who tell you you need to buy top gear end needs shooting.

    I have made a lot of mistakes and learnt form it :Aghast:

    My machine polishing was let lose on the first gen it before it was resprayed I honed my skill on it :Wink: I burnt the paint in a few places with rotary polisher it didn't help with abrasive pads and compound.. but as with everything you find your grove .

    On detailing word you loads of people offering classes but I was stubborn and wanted to learn it myself the hard way ..
