    Valeting

    Well said. Polishing your car every week or so WILL harm your paint as you are removing small amounts of paint every time. We had an owner of an A6 Avant come in by just over 2 years ago so we could look at an area of his bonnet where he'd been trying to remove a scratch by hand - he'd managed...

    Polished Bliss®: RS500 #486...

    The car was then dried off the Black Baron once again, now the vinyl and paint was properly protected this took no time at all :D My Dad and Brother had arrived by this point so while I did the correction on the painted parts (no after pics so you'll just have to trust me they were done!) Dad...

    Polished Bliss®: RS500 #486...

    All the shuts and exterior trim were then cleaned but this time using a hot water and Swisswax Opaque Shampoo Mix as you don't really want to be using APC's or regular shampoos and snow foams on the exterior if you can help it: Once they were done it was time to give the car a...

    Well after months and months of waiting my Dads new car finally arrived :) John and I went to inspect the car as soon as it arrived at the compound just outside of Aberdeen, you wait ages to see one and then two turn up at once :D Can't say I was overly impressed at the level of "care"...

    Alloy wheel cleaner/ product's

    As already mentioned above - if the wheels are new or in good condition then normal shampoo will be fine. Concentrate on getting a few coats of wheel sealant on and you should never really need any strong cleaners. You may need a tar remover every couple of months if they pick up tar spots but...

    Megs wheel brightener or something else....

    Another vote for the Gloss-It wheel gel, probably my most favourite product from last year!

    MircoFibre Washmitt or Lambswool mitt?

    Lambswool are best for the paintwork - the shorter pile of microfibres can lead to marring the paint quicker, best to save these for arch lips/alloys/door shuts etc :)

    Polished Bliss®: LP560-4 Ne Plus Ultra Part II...

    The following weekend we were sponsoring a local car show and the owner very kindly gave us permission to have the car on display... I had hoped to get some full sun shots at some point during the day but instead of sun we got rain... The beading looked good I guess...

    A final wipe down with Gloss-It Gloss Enhancing QD followed and this was what 110 hours worth of work looked like :) A walk around with the Sun Gun:
