    The car was pretty clean so i thought i would just do the inside and then try and get the arches cleaned up. Ended up washing the whole car in and out and including all the door shuts.

    First took one wheel off at a time pretty grubby arches there.

    Front before

    Used the pressure washer to get most of the dirt off then soaked them in APC and left for 5 mins then scrubbed them down with some soapy water and blasted off again.
    Then i used some AG engine degresser agitated with a brush and left for a further 15mins then a final blast with the pressure washer.

    After front

    Still not fantastic but i good improvement seeming the car is 10years old and this was probably the first time this has been done..

    That 4th photo... whats the multicoloured stuff under the arches? Looks like rust, bare metal, primer? Did you strip the paint off??

    My arches are always covered with a nice layer of dinitrol or waxoyl to keep them rust-free :)
