    Alright folks. Somehow we managed to get sun in Belfast today so I give the car a good go over in the shade... Lol

    Steps taken: wet, foam, rinse, Wash (2 bucket method), dry, polish using a DA Polisher, glaze, sealant.

    I'm in no way a professional detailer, simply started trying to get into it for my own benefit on my own car a few years back. And now the clio need the treatment

    Managed to rid the swirls/light scratches and some bad scratched areas as can be seen in the 50/50 shots below.

    Just thought I'd share to show that anyone can get good results with a bit of knowledge d810b4b1107b4d272e36583613cf7170.jpg 42dfd6c418fb80f4161c641de6e48479.jpg 4c212a542412492d330b14692a5ea9f2.jpg 298421978f1c5ad3cf825b704c75fb02.jpg 9c0cccf00ab0a0f7c2eb94769553e78e.jpg c2c4aabd30f46f758016b08fe37e4e0b.jpg d2d66cd3b2e4b9da660bb2b25cf4174f.jpg

    Another 2 I just took...

    Something about the second one I really like. Just be the mixture of lights I think with the light sky, think the car looks well bc122ffebe4380099d2e889001e5fbe1.jpg 97c20c9c9a44fb21e388bca6877f355b.jpg

    Looks GREAT M8. Clean, tidy, subtle-aggressive and not too OTT.

    Really nice :smile:

    Looking good mate. I do like the black and white combo on the Clio.

    Yea its got circular holes throughout to allow the light to pass through, Don't notice and difference really at night.

    From a distance the headlights just look black and you cant see the mesh until up close. Though i'd try it when getting the windows tinted and if i didn't like it i could just rip them off lol.

    IMO it looks well on the white as apposed to the silver lights on white (as you can see i have a thing against silver on white so i made it all black)

    Ahh yes, I remember posting on your thread about the back looking a bit strange/plain!

    Another clean today, starting to think I have a problem.

    Does anyone else fall in love with the Clio all over again everytime they wash it or am I just a weirdo? All the curves and creases look sooo good when it's shiny!

    Anyway here's a few pics. Only down side is they emphasise how badly I need to lower it and add spacers, would look soo good! Hopefully around July or august after my 2 holidays more excited about lowering the car than going to Ibiza atm lol

    Last one I promise

    Gonna miss this for a week while I'm away wish I could take it to magaluf with me next week, though I can't see myself being sober enough at any stage to be able to drive

    Just thought I'd throw up a few new pics after a quick clean and wax there.

    I know I love just looking through everyone's pics and admiring the clean reflections and cleaning detail and there's bound to be people as sad as me out there who look at clean clios

    Shop windows, bus stops and any other reflective surface.....
    Is it just me that looks at the car in any available reflection and still gets excited every time a get a glimpse of the sexy wee piece of metal?
