Veer nice work Lee, it’s looking fantastic already after the polish.  Look at those reflections!  The paint must feel super smooth now, it looks it too.  And great gloss and that’s without the wax!   Well done and hope you’re having a well deserved rest now.  Until the next step!

Thanks becs, indeed super smooth, never felt it so smooth not even when I first got it.

Shine is very good, hopefully when sunny it will look even better

Cheers, yes really pleased for a first ever attempt with a DA.

Think I could improve slightly next time with the experience gained, obviously a few stone chips etc that the DA can never fix and couple of scratches that news another go or maybe a proper cut rather than a single stage but unless you are going around very closely they are not noticable.

Thanks to everyone on here for the advice over the course of this.

regards

Well done Lee!  Your efforts have clearly paid off as the car is looking fantastic.  😎  That gorgeous Lapiz flake is really popping in the sunshine!   Great job, must have been hot work out there yesterday too but all done now and the results are fab!

Thanks Becs, wasn't too bad yesterday as the sun goes off the drive around 1PM so waited until after that to get car out the garage, only took at hour to get the wax one so not too bad.

thanks for the help along the way.

I have been popping hearts all over your posts! Very well done Lee. I remember many years ago when I DA'd my 3 series that was covered in dealer buffer trails. I'd never done anything like it before so simply did a lot of 'youtube university', bought the stuff and got on with it. It's such a satisfying feeling when you are done! There is not much better than swirl free Lapiz popping in the sun!
