    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

    [​IMG]

    Wheels sprayed with VC acid free and quickly agitated with brush

    [​IMG]

    Car was then foamed

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

    [​IMG]

    Washed down using 2BM and mitt

    Dried using AB deluxe drying towel

    [​IMG]

    AB berry blast tyre gel applied

    Job done!

    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).

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

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