    Was planning to do the paint correction and chips today but family stuff came first. Going to be a couple of weeks before I'll have enough spare time.

    Very frustrating.

    Cleaned the caravan today

    The roof took a VP CPW, then 2 snow foams & then some "Elbow Grease' APC to clean. What a right **** of a job TBH
    Each step was left to dwell for around 10mins before having a crack at it with a caravan specific soft yellow nylon brush
    What a right ******** carry on. Looks like I may be purchasing a full cover for it when not being used

    Had a close inspection of both wheels & they're suffering badly from lacquer peel. So going to get them both refurbed in the winter months
    Which idiot at Swift decided to put diamond cut alloys on a caravan FFS

    & before anyone asks there is no pic's. 'Twas the last thing on my mind when I'd finished lol

    Relaxing with a couple of bottles of Sol as we speak :thumbs up:

    Sun stopped me yesterday, however saw my opportunity and finished off today

    Fallout remover (BH) - great stuff
    Tar remover (AMDetails)
    Clay Bar (AMDetails)
    Polish (AF Triple)
    Waxed (AG UHD)

    Pretty pleased with the results. About 4 hours of work. Need a more aggressive polish as there are a number of scratches behind the door handle from jewellery that need cutting back.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Which SF did you use here @jassyo06 as it appears to have removed everything and brought back the beading or should I say previous coating ... I have experienced this with Done & Dusted, paint feels really slick afterwards but there is no hydrophobicity. It only returns after you SF it.


    Feel for you @Bristle Hound. I have only done a friend's Q7 once and every tissue in my body was aching afterwards. And I just decon'd & washed it - no machine polish. I bet you'd be the same. Hats off to the herculean effort mate

    S5 looking fab @Adam14. Hate these jewelry and thesm effing pointed ladies shoes with all sorts of nail-like things attached to them in the name of fashion and fock. The inner plastic liner on the A3 needs some restoration and might try a combination of Megs PlastRx and Nanolex Trim Rejuvenator that @jassyo06 recommended earlier.

    Cheers chaps, was absolutely knackered. May give the inside some love after work today.
    I'm away with work for the next 6-8 weeks so I know there'll not be a chance to clean her hence the push to get some sort of protection on there.

    I made a similar post earlier up mate, Jassy recommended some trim restorer although online I've seen many recommend some APC and a magic eraser. Was going to have a go with the latter today or tomorrow.

    I've tried Surfex HD but it didn't remove the scratches/marks. I know @jassyo06 recommended Nanolex but was wondering if either someone had tried it or if there was an alternative.

    Cheers @jassyo06. Apparently, she doesn't know who did this. Off course, kids are responsible for the rear ones but she ain't got no clue about the front . And off course it won't be her as she doesn't move her seat right next to the windscreen

    Not today but yesterday - this picture upload is getting a bit monotonous isn't it. We need to spice things up a bit here .

    Outside followed typical wash routine but inside needed much tlc after our trip to Bournemouth on Saturday. It appeared half of Beach sand managed to get in to the car so, gave the inside a deep cleanse with Sonax interior cleaner.

    Had a window of opportunity to to clean the car today. Just time to add a layer of mother's wax to bonnet only.

    And then rain came in later and dampened my cleaning mojo again! Lol

    So I got fed up with looking at dear daughters filthy Alhambra (to be fair she’s got 3 under 5 to worry about lol) and gave it a 2 hour makeover. Don’t have a DA yet so all by hand. Pretty pleased although some of that “Black Hole” stuff would have been good !! DE1142F3-19D2-4420-8F15-852563961565.jpeg 2E91F1D3-E8A1-4851-A867-C5A6A181968B.jpeg
