    The Ł50 detail (?!)

    Howdy,

    As I have this Friday off I thought I would treat my car to a good old clean! I want to do a good job but I dont want to spend more than Ł50 on all the various chemicals and equipment you can buy!

    I currently have:

    A hose pipe
    2 buckets

    Basically I would just like some advise on what products I should get this week (prefrably all from Halfords) to get my car sparkling. The paint is hibiscus red colour if that makes much of a difference. One thing I would like is somthing to clean the alloys as they are filthy and some sort of wax to protect the paint and make it shine.

    But I cant spend more than Ł50 on bits as I'm rather skint right now

    Any suggestions? :D!

    errr well you should be able to get the basics for £50

    id suggest:

    a lambswool mitt
    a good shampoo, megs gold class maybe
    autoglym super resin polish
    and collinite 476 as a wax.

    that is pretty much the basics covered and should roll in at just under your budget

    1, Clay bar! Makes one hell of a difference.
    2, Good shampoo
    3, Autoglym SRP
    4 Autoglym EGP
    5, Plush Microfibre
    6, Micro Drying towel

    That will probably slighty over budget. Or get a mini detail..

    Cheers guys!

    I wanted to do it myself as hopefully I will get more than one use out of each thing and in the future I'll have more cash to spend on better gear

    Just done my D3.

    Advise Halfords for buying all yer Megs gear and buy things 3 at a time max. Buy 2 get one free.

    Don't buy Megs terry towels etc get the Halfords ones. Though the Megs towel for drying is superb!

    Ideally:
    - Megs Shampoo
    - Megs Clay Bar
    - Megs Paint Scrub
    - Megs Polish
    - Megs Carnuba Wax

    Then some decent wheel cleaner and Megs tyre shine

    Takes a while but looks superb! Prob £60 for all that from Halfords...
