The paint was not in terrible condition so a medium cutting polish was used. Here are some befores and afters of the panels

This was the driver's door with all those buffer trails left behind

After the polishing was complete the car was unmasked




And then wiped with ipa alcohol


To clean off the polishing oils so that the wax can bond to the paint properly




Here is the gloss achieved without a wax applied on yet




I hope you see the humour in this but I decided to apply a British manufactured wax to a British manufactured car


Applied to the paint




While the wax was curing I attended to other areas like cleaning the windows and dressing the tires




Wiped the wax off and took it outside for some final shots

First off some pics in the direct sun

Perfect


I love the way the metallic flake looked in this pic






And now the final pics














I like how this pic turned out
















Some cool pics of nice details on the XK-R






And finally my favourite pic




I hope you enjoyed reading through the write up and I look forward to sharing more in the near future!

Cheers!
