    Ok so on to the clean first i aplyed safe degreser around all the seals and skirts and left it to dwell for around 10mins

    Then soaked the car in safe deg and megs shampoo plus

    I moved on to the wheels using megs wheel brightner and megs metal polish to remove any tough tar spots,

    They looked like this Before

    Clean with shapoo plus and megs mit then rolled her inside the yard to dry off. Using megs last touch detaling spray to help the drying.

    While i waited for the car to fully dry i got stuck in to the exhaust

    Smothed the area off wit some 500 grit wet&dry and primed. While it was drying i Polished the entire car with SRP.

    After I painted the scuff looks 100 times better now. And finshed by polishing the car again and applying meg nxt gen wax.

    Rolled outside for all the afters.

    The scuff has gone now luckly most of it was under the bumper but it was visible in some places.

    It does look fantastic.

    Didn't even think it looked too dirty in the 'before' pics... but then I did think those wheels had a light anthracite finish until I saw the 'after' shots!

    Sweet looking motor! Think I will have to give mine a good clean.......WHEN I can get it out the garage!! as the builders doing the loft conversion put their skip in front the garage doors. Luckily the missus never uses her car so it looks like I have to endure her Micra for the next 4 weeks AGHHHHH!!!!
