Smile My Car Wax Polished with 3M Premium Wax Polish.

Hi,

@ Mods: I do not whether this is the right sub forum. If not, pls mov this thread.

I thought of sharing the information . Just recently, I gave my car recently for polishing with 3M Preimum Wax Car Polish. After the polish the car looks stunning. The below mentioned are the photos taken before and after polish.

Has anybody tried this by any chance?

After Polishing: The car looks stunning:

true. after polishing, it seems that the shine / glare is too much even for the camera!

Right, both are from different cameras. But the car looks stunning with the shine it has got after polishing. See the last picture wherein you can see the reflections (of the road itself). But I'am liking it after it is polished. Looks cool.

Nope. I did not pay a penny for this. It was done as a dealership traning programme was going on and I had lent my car for their training purpose.

Guys, guys, please click on the pics to see them in their actual size - there is no doubt about the high gloss & mirror finish in the "after" pics.

The tints are due to different cameras being used &, perhaps also different times of the day.

Car's looking good Snaronikar
