    I started by snow foaming with Valet Pro PH Neutral snow foam and whilst this was working on the car I started on the wheels and arches, using bilberry on the wheels and various brushes to get them looking like new, the arches were cleaned using Megs Super Degreaser and a long handled brush, the car and arches were then pressure washed.

    The car was then given another coat of snow foam was then washed using the 2 bucket method, Megs Hyper wash and a lamb’s wool wash mitt. The car was then rinsed using a open ended hose, and whilst car was still wet it was clayed using Sonus ultra fine and Megs Last Touch used as a lube, not sure why but have no pics of the clay after use.

    The car was then rinsed and was dried using a Uber Premium drying towel and Megs last touch which once the car was clean and dry it gave me a better chance to see the condition of the paint

    The car was then taped up with 3m blue tape and polished using a Makita rotary and Menzerna 203 and a black 3m polishing pad.
