    My Hard Work!!

    Here's how i spent most of my Saturday!



    Method:
    Rinse down with pressure washer
    Wash with Meguiars Gold Shampoo
    Apply AutoGlym clean wheels to the wheels and scrub
    Rinse down
    Clay the whole car with Meguairs clay and detailing spray
    Rinse down again!
    Remove all water with Meguairs water magnet
    Apply AutoGlym super resin polish on a MF pad
    Buff off with a MF cloth
    Apply AutoGlym fast glass on all the glass with a MF pad
    Buff glass with MF cloth
    Go over the whole car with a Meguairs super soft towel
    Apply Meguairs tyre shine with a 2" paint brush

    Any tips on my method and suggested products would be good, just do it in a logical order and products are just what ive tried and tested myself.

    Heres the pics anyway!





























    Cheers

    As much as I like to see it clean Ash, I still think the wheels look odd.

    no coil-overs on them too right? That would let it sit right

    Yeah i still dont like the wheels but i cant afford to change them at the moment!

    I like the yellow brakes, makes a difference to the usual red you see on everything and i think it suits the blue really well.

    Thanks for all the comments!

    Very nice Ash !

    Can't beat a bit of Autoglym mixed with Meguairs for a nice finish.

    Im looking forward to the better weather coming in the next few months so I can give mine a good going over !

    Very nice mate!

    I always have an argument with myself about whether to do the polish first or the glass... If you polish first you run the risk of a bit of glass cleaner somehow getting on the polish finish and smearing/patching it, but if you do the glass first you run the risk of getting polish dust on it!

    Interesting to read you favour Fast Glass too - I used to use it all the time but I've not for a while now as I found it could sometimes leave a streaky-finish which was annoying at night with oncoming headlights. Not all the time though, so I guess it's more to do with the method than the material...

    Nice work though! ...You can come and clean my car now!

    Regards,

    Rob.

    Excellent, good job! I also was trying this weekend my car.

    The yellow brakes, are very well with the blue car.
