    This is the results of hours of work, it may not show it on the photos but honestly it looks absolutely brilliant in person.
    I’m using a new company called dunking biscuits and I’ve found that these are way easier to work with IMO.
    I used some metal polish for the grill as it was looking a bit dis coloured but it brought it out great aswell as the Mercedes Badge.
    Opinions?

    Nice - looks pretty good for a 15 year old car.

    Thanks!
    I used this thing called “hydroboost” and I’ve used a friends before and it lasts around 5 months?
    Effectively the surface goes from wet to almost dry in seconds apart from a few drops with zero watermarks.

    Extravagant cosmetics for cars. I googled it before you asked the question. Many of us are addicted to shine.
