Yesterday i bought some Zip Wax Concentrate Shampoo, Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine Polish and Autoglym Aquawax and after 3.5 hours here is the end result:

My street is full of Fords lol.

Considering i've never polished and waxed a car before im pretty happy with the results. The Ultra Deep Shine Polish sorted out most of the swirl marks and gave Venom a deep mirror finish. The Aquawax was a pain to buff out but thats most likely due to applying it on dry paint.

Not the best pics, its been raining most of the day lol


UPDATED

The other pics didnt really do it justice so i've took some new pics now its drier:

Thanks. The microfibre cloths you get with it are great. Apply the wax when the car is wet, im sure it'll be alot easier lol. The rain does bead off Venom very nicely now.

I have spent longer than that washing and cleaning my car. The day that I had her. I spent six hours cleaning inside and out. !!!!!! I was so worn out by the end of the day.
