Well I'm happy to report that after all your help (thanks guys) - that I finally had a chance to detail my car properly.

Detail included:

Prewash - Tar and Bug spray applied.
Snow Foam.
Two bucket method with G3 Bodyshop prep shampoo (although not sure how good it was).
Gyeon Iron (Wheels and Body).

Clayed with G3 Claymit (not sure I could every go back to normal clay again).
Quick Detailed just to ensure all was clean before polishing.

2 step correction using my Meguiars MT320:

Combination of Orange and Green Hexlogic Quantum Pads using Menzerna 2500 to remove scratches and swirls (although the deeper ones remain, the micron readings were low I didn't feel the need to go too far and burn through).

Finished with Menzerna 3800 on a white Hexlogic Quantum Pad; couldn't believe the gloss.

Applied Kamikaze Miyabi which is currently curing, and then will be applying some Kamikaze Infinity Wax tomorrow.

Wheels have been sealed with Poorboys wheel sealant.

More pictures to follow but this is how it looks so far:

Will post pictures tomorrow one Infinity wax has been applied, glass cleaned, tyres & trim is dressed :)

A couple of suggestions....

machine polish the glass and seal it.
condition all the rubber seals.
polish the wheels and seal them
Protect the walls of the tyres.
clean, polish and seal the engine bay.
clean and protect the wheel arch liners

And then there is the interior.....

Roof liner cleaned
Carpets
seats
trim
dash and console
de-odorize the interior and ventilation system


and in the next half hour, make yourself a cuppa! :lol:

The depth of shine really makes the paintwork 'pop'. :D

As for de-odorising the interior and ventilation system...have a look at this from the CYC shop.

http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/air-fresheners/dakota-odor-bombs-various-fragrences-/prod_1151.html

A similar product is used at garages who clean and refill air-con systems. If you do this, I would also recommend that you change the cabin's air/pollen filter (before you use the odor bomb) as normally it would be clogged full of dust and bacteria.
