    hi all i recently bought some new cleaning stuff this week and decided to try it all out today as had a couple of hours free the car had not been washed since last wednesday so was in depsperate need of a wash.
    first of all gave the car a washing down then applied some snow foam using the karcher jet wash.

    the car was then rinsed off.


    now i have never used the two bucket method so decided to give it a whirl and i agree that it should allways be used now as its the best form of cleaning the car.

    car was then rinsed of after this.

    while the car was still wet i decided to start with the clay bar.

    results after clay bar.

    some bits were a bit stubbon so decided to get the bug and tar remover out.

    the car was dryed off after this and used megs step 1 paint cleaner then wiped off ready for the dodo juice lime prime (amazing stuff)

    depends it not rearly a cleaner you can just throw on and clean off in couple of minutes i applied 3 coats of cleaner and 2 coats of conditioner. i highly recomend it but you do need to spend a bit of time on the seats to get good results
