Why reflection shots don’t have to mean anything

Reflection-shots are very common on social media. They show a picture of the paintwork, reflecting their surroundings like a mirror. From some particular angles, it can even look as if there is no mirror at all, until they zoom out an you see the actual vehicle with the reflection in the paintwork.

How to apply a glaze

A glaze is a product that hides very light surface imperfections. It is often used when somebody doesn’t have the time to give the car a full polish, but wants to achieve a freshly polished look. There are certain positives and negatives with using a glaze. Knowing exactly when to use it will help you to get the most out of it.

Filling swirls – basic

One method of getting rid of swirl marks is to basically fill up the mark with a filler (a bit like anti-wrinkle cream!!) so that there’s no longer a hole and sharp edges to catch the light. This method I prefer for working by hand as it does not require massive effort to break a product down, and by hand this method achieves better results.
