    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default Quick Clean

    With the possibility of andy_hare popping down tomorrow with his machine polisher to try and sort some of the marks in my dodgy paintwork out for me I thought I should probably give the old girl a quick wash.

    So, got home from work, got out the pressure washer that I got back from my ex earlier in the week and gave it a quick clean.

    Pressure wash rinse, then foam (although it was halford cheapy pressure wash foam), then a hand shampoo with Autoglym car shampoo conditioner (using two buckets naturally). Amy got the alloy wheel cleaner out and gave them a going over and cleaned the tyres while I hand chamois'd down the whole car, then Amy dressed the tyres and gave the inside a quick going over with some cockpit shine (still needs hoovering and the carpets/seats cleaning but that's for another day) while I cleaned all the windows inside and out.

    Considering how crap the paintwork is in places on the old girl at the moment and considering I didn't use any polish or wax at all as in theory it's getting machine polished tomorrow (at least partially) I think it don't look bad from a distance

    I don't think the car knows what's hit it actually, that's three times this year it's been washed already

    Previous wash was last summer lol

    Wish it looked as good close up
