    Hi Guys

    Its been pretty quite in this section for a while now, so thought I would put some pictures up of a car I detailed recently.
    I know its not an MB, but havn't detailed a Mercedes in a very long time. But not to worry, I have a very nice classic MB coming through in 3 weeks, which I'll show you guys.

    Anyway this car was in for 3 days work, to have minor paint correction as it was just covered in light swirls and marring. This was coupled with short deep scratches that were removed on the boot lid too.

    Anyhow heres some pictures:

    The Aston was corrected on a medium cut wool pad with 3m yellow top, then refined on a blue pad with ultrafina SE. I then layed a single coat of werkstatt acrylic and finished in 2 coats of supernatural hard wax. Not the paste sealant.
