    I started by giving the car blast off with the pressure washer as it only really had light covering of dirt on it, the car was then snowfoamed using a mix of megs hyper wash and snowfoam .Whilst this did its stuff I cleaned the wheels using the bilberry wheel cleaner and various wheel brushes, these alloys are in good condition but have just been damaged by a tyre fitter whilst get new tyres fitted once the owner has sorted this with the garage he is going to have them powder coated at a new company that has just opened up in the town.

    This was then blasted off with the pressure washer, and then the car was given another coat of the same mix snowfoam and washed using Meg’s hyper wash and the 2 bucket method and a wash mitt before being power rinsed off and dried. The lower parts of the car and inner arch lips where sprayed with Tardis which was left to do its stuff before being wiped down with a microfibre cloth

    The car was then rinsed off using a open ended hose and left wet before claying using citrus bling and water mix( 4 to 1) I4 detailing clay bar which didn’t really pull much from the paint work except some slight over spray it was then rewashed using the same method and dried using a Uber microfiber drying towel.

    Car was then taped up using 3m masking tape and the bonnet vents removed to be polished separately , a couple of quick 50/50 using the lime prime and 3m yellow polishing pads before getting on with the rest car.

    After polishing my way round the car with the rotary, I applied the Dodo supernatural hydrid wax/sealant using a german applicator pad and left to cure before buffing using poorboys microfibre clothes. Giving a cracking glossy finish to the paint that even the owner was taken a back by as he could believe the finish left by the lime prime could be bettered.

    The car was then given a final wipe down using Finishkare 425, and the glass was cleaned using neat citrus bling and the wheels were given 2 coats of Jetseal 109 by the owner and the tyres giving a coat of Valet pro tyre dressing.

    Leaving me with this.
