What products do you use @NothernDan?

I consider myself to be half decent with a polishing cloth but cant get my silver to shine quite like yours. Unless the images are edited?

Hey dude, the car has been DA polished using Meguiars ultimate compound, then Meguiars ultimate polish, then cleaned with Meguiars ultimate quik detailer before two coats of collinite Marque d'elegance and a final coat of Dodo Juice light fantastic with 24 hours to cure between coats and a wipe down with quik detailer before each new application. 

The pics have had the brightness turned down and structure turned up by about 10% each, that's it 😎

You can go far crazier with the filters if you want..... Exhibit AIMG_20190911_221554_542.thumb.jpg.0ef915a6fe6fe87eeab92f0934996550.jpg 

And Exhibit B

Gotta have a good shine to get the reflections though 😎😎

Cheers! I have a DA and a tin of colinite but nothing light colour specific. Just order a sample of Light Fantastic to give a whirl 👍

Hope you like it dude.

It smells ace and does the job loads better than a lot of others on light coloured cars.

I shelled out for some swissvax best of show a while back and while it is undoubtedly amazing on darker cars, on a light car it does not have the same shine as light fantastic. Nowhere near. 

Only downside to light fantastic is that it does not last that well, but the two coats of collinite sorts that out, that stuff gives you at least 3 months and the light fantastic gives you the super deep and glossy top coat. 😎😎

You can wash and quik detail as required to keep it looking good inbetween reapplications.

A few updates from me. Just back from the detailers. Also painted my calipers and 15mm spacers all round. Well pleased with how it’s looking now.

Have you got a link for the spacers? I'm thinking about going down that route myself.

I went for SCC spacers as I wanted black ones. Ordered through Ebay. Not cheap but top quality.

Thank you mate. Very easy! Spray twice per panel (depending on size) and dry it as normal. I've done the wheels too but I sprayed the towel. I get a lot less brakedust sticking to the wheels, pressure wash the rest and it comes off without scrubbing.
