This will be my first foray into mechanical detailing. Always been elbow grease prev.. and not that often.

Finally got the car on the road and up to the workshop, after sorting a few jobs on it I had a little dabble with the new polisher..
I have managed to improve the bonnet but it could do with more work, best to start gentle tho..

After experimenting with clay bars, I switched to a G3 clay mitt when I had my 900. I found it much easier to use. From memory, they recommend using quick detailer as lube, I just buy whatever's cheapest on amazon.

The blurb says it last 5x longer than traditional clay but mine has been used on at least seven different cars, and 2-3 times in some cases and still has the desired effect.
