    The car was then given its first coat of snow foam made up of the valet pro PH neutral snowfoam, the snowfoam was then blasted off with the pressure washer, and then the car was given another coat of the same mix snowfoam and whilst this was still on the car I washed it using AM bubbles which is a new product to me and must say I am really impressed as it gives the water a really slick feel to it which seems to help the mitt just glide across the car and has a cracking fruity smell which is slightly addictive. The car was washed using the 2 bucket method with grit guards in both buckets and a lambswool wash mitt.














    The car was then rinsed off using a open ended hose and dryed using the woolly mammoth drying towel, now any one who has one of these will know how big they are so the next couple of photos will show how big the Capri bonnet is





    The car was clayed using citrus bling and water mix( 10 to 1) and a Bilt hamber soft clay bar which didn`t really pull any contaminates from the paint work it was then rewashed using the same method and dried using the woolly mammoth again


    I then went round the car applying the Autobrite extreme glaze by hand using a german applicator pad, some rubbish 50/50 shots lol

    I then stopped mucking about and cracked on round the rest of the car











    Before apply the wax I decided to go round the car dressing the arches and trim using a new product to me which is Maxolen Blue star A-Z dressing, after speaking to Pat at the open day earlier in the month I decided to to give it a go on this car as theres a lot of plastic/rubber trim.
    Some 50/50 shots













    Also dressed the tyres and arches









    Then got a bit carried away and cleaned and dressed the engine bay lol

    Then gave the car a coat of Autobrite Obsession, again used a german applicator pad to apply to a single panel at a time, left to haze before buffing using poorboys buffing towels.











    Exhausts where cleaned up using Autosol metal polish and a microfibre cloth but I forgot to get any photos as wanted to go get some shots done in the sunshine

    Finished shots































    Some photo`s from the VAG meet, thanks to Kurt for letting me use them





    And one of Rogers Fiesta RS Turbo which I did a while a go but now wearing autobrite addiction wax as Roger came and pinched it from my collection as he was having a nightmare with the other wax he was trying to use
