    An old school/family/gym friend wanted me to look at his A4 cabriolet – see if it could be spruced up and generally freshened a little.

    I wasn’t able to capture many during shots throughout, so, just a small/quick report I’m afraid.

    Inspection shots..

    Generally, quite tidy. A few clumps of Super Resin Polish from previous ventures to tidy up, several bad tar deposits on the lower half’s and a light dusting on the engine-bay/interior.

    Engine bay worked first. Mix of Megs APC, Super De-greaser and various brushes/microfibres.

    Sills and shuts next. APC, Super-Degreaser for the hinges and a good wipe around the boot channels.

    Quite a warm day today - was going to struggle with water-spotting, or at least so I thought.

    Hood was cleaned with 303 convertible cleaner and an AG ‘hood sponge’, rinsed thoroughly. Protected with 303 Fabric Guard once dry.
