    Proper clean

    i havent cleaned the car big time since audi driver in october, my car is always washed come rain or shine every weekend so always looks clean anyway but i havent done any polishing or waxing for a while. so on sunday i thought hell with it, nice day and i had 4 cans of special vat lying around so i went and got to work on the car giving her a good clean.

    i used a paint cleaner(megs) to remove some of the ****e in the paint then proceeded to polish then wax. next week she will be clay barred ready for GTI and treated again but for now i think she is looking good and getting back to her best like last year. cant wait to get a random polisher and practice on some spare panels as usuing the meguairs is good but i want a better finish with better products so ill be on the look out for one soon.

    anyway here is some pics of the car cleaned and shiny. did the engine bay too while i was there and it came up nice and clean. all in all a good sunday........until it pissed down 2 hours after me finishing 4 hours on the car.

    can you see the can of special vat in the boot lol

    oh i also put my new pressed plates on while i was at it

    engine bay looking clean

    front plates on but not bang on centre

    all done, tyres not dressed due to attracting more crap than usual so laying off it until GTI


    look forward to next weekend now so i can work on her more lol

    oh and i think the front needs to be slightly lower
