    Thumbs up Cleaned the A3

    I gave the A3 a quick clean yesterday evening and took some pics, so I thought I'd share. These were all taken on my phone as digital camera is charged for holiday!



    Autobrite VC acid free & snow foam



    The car wasn't too bad, some light dirt, this is the best picture I could get of it



    Wheels sprayed with VC acid free and quickly agitated with brush



    Car was then foamed





    Pressure washed down and it's 75% clean I'd say. The back which was dirtiest before (excuse my finger!!!)



    Washed down using 2BM and mitt







    Dried using AB deluxe drying towel



    AB berry blast tyre gel applied



    Job done!







    Cheers,
    Scott

    Looks good Scott. As stated in the glass thread, good to see a local/M6 abuser. I travel to Birmingham at the weekend to see the other half (at Uni).

    This is an old thread!
    The towel is great, cheapest place to buy is eBay - Deluxe Blue "Ultimate" Fluffy Drying Towel 3ft x 2ft on eBay (end time 16-Jan-11 11:52:19 GMT)

    and the tyre gel is quite good, but I'm sure there's better!

    Lol it still looks the same, with the addition of a couple more stone chips and a new windscreen since then.
    The cars seen paint though, even in these pics, unfortunately.

    Yeah, 10mm front, 12mm rear, and it rubs a bit!
