    Cool Detaling Audi A3 Liquid yellow

    hi all i recently bought some new cleaning stuff this week and decided to try it all out today as had a couple of hours free the car had not been washed since last wednesday so was in depsperate need of a wash.
    first of all gave the car a washing down then applied some snow foam using the karcher jet wash.



    the car was then rinsed off.


    now i have never used the two bucket method so decided to give it a whirl and i agree that it should allways be used now as its the best form of cleaning the car.

    car was then rinsed of after this.


    while the car was still wet i decided to start with the clay bar.

    results after clay bar.



    some bits were a bit stubbon so decided to get the bug and tar remover out.

    the car was dryed off after this and used megs step 1 paint cleaner then wiped off ready for the dodo juice lime prime (amazing stuff)

    results when using new cloths.





    now to start on the engine.



    using megs engine cleaner and a tooth brush and a mircofibre cloth the results.




    wheels were then waxed with some poor boys wheel sealent.

    now for the last coat using poor boys EX-P sealent.



    outside done now for the interior first was a good hover then using some poor boys for the interior.

    before:


    after:

    the seats needed a good clean also so got the gliptone out.

    before:


    after:


    few pics of the whole car complete.




    my range of detailing.




    any comment would be much appriciated,it took me roughly 5 hours to complete the whole car the car is a respray so not many swirls to deal with it has been resprayed the same colour as the megane's (liquid yellow)

    depends it not rearly a cleaner you can just throw on and clean off in couple of minutes i applied 3 coats of cleaner and 2 coats of conditioner. i highly recomend it but you do need to spend a bit of time on the seats to get good results
