      I polished mine with infinity show wax yesterday but didn't take any pictures.
      It was gleaming.
      Woke up this morning and it's pishing.
      The beads were massive.

      Now I'm sitting in Cleethorpes and the bloody thing is filthy.

        I'm sure it will be gleaming again tomorrow

                        Managed to get some polish on yesterday, was going for a reflection shot today but then it rained so I'll post here instead. I didn't think it was bad for brillo and washing up liquid as suggested in another thread...Click image for larger version

                              Isn't the latest fad to get a hydrophobic coating on the bodywork so water sheets off instead of beading. Apparently once the sun hits those beads it magnifies and can microscopically damage the paintwork.

                              Personally, I can't remember the last time I polished or waxed any of my cars, but I used to be a weekend hero and spent a fortune over the years. Nowadays the cars are either run through the drive through or get a visit to the local hand wash place.

                                Always wash and polish mine myself, its worth at least 10mph if its clean and polished, slips through the air more cleanly!
