I would wax in straight lines rather than circles but thats personal preference. Just out of interest do you polish and wax over the racing stripes or tape them up?

Thanks guys, have to say its cleaner then the day I picked it up. As for the stripes question, i don't go over them with anything more than water and soap. Ive never been told not to polish/wax them, but id rather not take the risk and ruin them. I dont tape them up just use a steady hand

I always wax (with care of course) the roof zipper that Phil fitted to mine, looks great even though it's getting on for 3 years old Wink, he does use top quality vinyl though thumbs up.

Good efforts there Neil.

Think I may switch the the HD wax next time, after seeing the results Ian and yourself have got.

Aaron you need to put both of the picture into separate layers then change the opacity of one of them to give the see-through effect.

gives it a nice deep vivid tone, really impressed with the hd wax. I was up bluewater the other night and there lights made the car look really nice. no photos as my phone was flat.
