Well, having practised on the Defender, I finally plucked up the courage to detail the my Jaguar XF.
This was all done back in June, but I am only just getting it up on here having found a new host for the photos :roll: :oops:

As the paintwork was in better condition than that of the Defender, I took a slightly different tack.
To remove the swirls present I decided against using the Maguires 105/205 combo and instead used Poorboys SSR.
I did the first pass with Poorboys SSR-2.5 and the second pass with SSR-1.
I then did a jewelling pass with Nano SST super gloss polish
After that I applied Chemical Guys Butter Wet Wax

I didn't do it all in one hit, but spread the work over a couple of weeks, working on a couple of panels at a time

Here are the results:

Roof

Bonnet

Rear three quarter panel

Offside rear door

Rear Quarter view

I think it has come out quite well.
The car is nearly 9 years old (I have had it from new) and there are some paint chips on the front edge of the bonnet and the wheels have a degree of curb rash, which I must get put right, but for it's age it scrubs up well :D
