    Talking Sprint blue S3 - Afters only

    Hi all,

    Some of these shots are in another post regarding spacers, but thought i'd post the reuslt of a busy weekend here.
    Spent most of Saturday sorting out the interior.
    Cleansed the leather - AG leather cleaner
    Fed the leather - AG leather cream
    Treated all plastics and rubbers - JEFF's Satin Prot
    Treated the piano black inserts with JEFF's Prime Acrylic
    Cleansed all interior glass - AG Fast Glass

    No pics sorry - but looks like new - really pleased actually.

    Sunday was the exterior:
    Rinsed then Washed - 2 bucket - with Lambswool wash mitt and microfibre mitt
    Dried with the waffle towel
    Clayed some of the lower panels to remove tar spots
    Dried off the alloys
    Polished the alloys with JEFFs Prime Strong
    Treated the alloys to a couple of coats of poorboys wheel sealent

    Porter Cable out:
    Polished headlights and taillights with a mild spot pad and Menz 106FA
    Polished all panels with Lake Country Polishing pad and Menz 85RD
    Buffed with Delux Mega Towels
    Used German App to apply JEFF's Prime Acrylic
    Buffed with Delux Mega Towels
    Applied Jeff's Acylic Jett Trigger
    Buffed with Delux Mega Towels
    Treated external plastics to 303 Aerospace protectant
    Polished Exhaust tips with Meg's NXT metal polish
    Dressed the tyres with AG Instant Tyre Shine - and wiped off residue

    Anyway, a pretty heavy weekend but it's brought the car pretty much back to new - i'm really pleased with the end result.

    As always, a big thank you to Rich & Clark at Polished Bliss for their on-going advice and patience! Cheers guys.

    A few pics (some in better light than others):












    Thanks for looking!

    Funny you say that about the 13 - I have had a bit of misfortune in the past, see here:

    Thanks for the comments jr
    It's quite satisfying - I find it a good way to switch off from work (and last week sucked!).
    Especially satisfying as there is a sprint blue S4 cab that parks here (estate agent I think) and it's seen nothing but 5 hand car washes and it shows, the paint is dull as hell.... I love shaming him!
    Must thank people on this forum for the wealth of info. It is second to non, but I still have lots to learn....
    It's cost me a fortune in kit and products though!

    I wonder whether he evens notices or not - I only say that as to have an S4 implies he is some kind of 'enthusiast' - so weird he doesnt look after his car! Or maybe he thinks paying 'extra' for a hand car wash is looking after it!!

    Top job on the S3 tho' - love that colour

    Great work my man, car looks sweet. So good in fact, I think I may have to go with the Jeffs after we strip the VTS at next week's breakfast club meet. After trying a few waxes on it, along with Zaino, I'm still convinced I can get a lot better from it - Jeffs it is then!
