    Lightbulb Day off work.....clean the car why not....

    Ok, well i had a day off work, so i thought why not clean the car. Also I ordered some products yesterday from cleanyourcar.co.uk & they arrived at about 10 this morning, super quick delivery!!

    Right, heres a pic before the wash:


    Got to work on the interior, which is TOP PRIORITY as always...then gave it a was with Meguiars gold class.

    Got it in the garage once it was washed, then dried off. Went over with Moose wax that i just recieved, RainX'd the windows....an used Poorboys alloy wheel protector...see below:


    all in all it was hard work, but i never regret spending the whole day on my car...see the finished piccies below:

    What dya think?















    Overall quite impressed with the moose, goes on easy, and does quite a good job!

    Oh and one more thing...next thing for me is to paint the calipers,i'm finkin of red, what are your opinons?

    Thanks for looking

    That looks really well fella. Although I'd have to agree with RasA4 about the towing blank.

    I got jiggy with the Zymol this aft. Didn't get any pics though, typical bl00dy Lancashire weather put paid to that. Have to say it's the wierdest experience putting the wax on without a cloth - bit like a full body massage!!

    yeah the towing eye cover is a pain in the ass, some bastid half-inched it from where i park it outside work!!! I should be able to get one and just get it sprayed wont it, i wont need to get the whole bumper sprayed either will i?

    I really enjoyed doin it too, it feels like good-use of a day....ANd i got lucky cause the next few days after were decent weather unusually.

    Thanks for the replies!!

    ^^^ Exactly what i'm planning on doing. What would you recommend for doing this?

    I got some caliper paint from halfrauds for my corsa i'm selling , but its a pastel red, wouldn't look good on the A4. I'm looking for like a brembo colour red. I've used hamerite previously, but is this the bes thing to do? its a pain in the ass when your'e trying to take it off to re-do them.

    What have you used on yours?

    Any advice appreciated.

    ^^ Only if i can lend it for a week after i have done it lol

    Is it just me that does this, or say for example, if your ever going anywhere (doesnt matter where it is) and you're driving,ya see, i always want to fill my tank up (brim the fecker) and then give it a full-valet. Theres no better feeling that giving the car a good check-over and a good cleaning, having a shower yourself, then jumping back into a lovely, good-smelling, spotless (and full of fuel) car, with a freshley downloaded album.........

    Or am i just strange?????

    HaHa!!

    Yip, it's not sad it's just that we want it to look great. It doesn't matter what anybody says to the contrary, when a flash of light dashes across someone's face they will look to see what the hell that was. My car aims to be that flash of light.

    However, I do regularly wish I had a garage not to avoid nosies but to get some work done when it might be raining!

    We've spent a fair bit of money on buying the car and it deserves to be protected, oh and to look quite good too.

    It gets us out often - it's the slaggers that should be getting out more often rather than watching the neighbour cleaning his clean car.

    You know my motto:

    NEVER MIND THE NEIGHBOURS.
