How do you guys polish it to that degree of shinyness? :D

Go to thepolishingshop and have a look at their polishing kits. They start from £9. I'll post a pic of my bits once they're finished!

I bought the £20 kit, 3 mops, 3 soaps and a load of teeny mops for the nadgery bits. Good kit albeit the coarse mop could do with beiing longer lasting.

Well it's half the size it was after two of the suspension cones in the OP  :unsure:  I'm comparing it to the 9' mop we've had for years.

clean , you do not need the polishing kit (although it is s lot easier and slightly better results) but i did this with 1000,2000 then 3000 wet and dry and polished up with solvol autosol and fine wire wool.

 

a lot more work but very satisfying and will only cost around £5 for the gear to do it and still have some left to do loads more  ;D

yeah, have found their big stuff last for quite a while to say the least, just scary the amount of money you can end up spending with them :(
