Door panel, polishing test

Feb. 6 , 2008

I've been desparate to start polishing the car up, but these short evenings don't give you a lot of time. As a test I set about doing just the drivers door.

Firstly the car was washed with Auto Glym Body Conditioning Shampoo, not something I normally use but I wanted to ensure that any product previously applied was removed. During washing the clay bar was used.
