Nice work as always. Wish you guys were local to me, I'd have you take a stab at my Jerez Black. It seems to never come out that good when I do it myself.

Fantastic work as usual guys! I've noticed that you've started using Iron Cut a fair bit these days. Is this something you recommend including in a standard wash process, or only when looking to do a polish/seal/wax?

we have been doing it on cars that badly need claying to cut some of the time down in our prep work.

thanks!
