    Default Detailed the Vectra Today!

    Detailed the vectra today!

    First time i have done the vectra, and omg, its soom uch biggger than the Astra lol!

    End Result is this (pictures pants as its darkkkk)











    The Things i used:




    I started with a soak in a mix of Chemical Guys Maxi Sudds II and Auto Rae Chem Snow Foam.

    Then Washed With Zaino Auto Bathe Shampoo.

    Clayed using Sonus Green Clay, and Sonus Glyde Lube.

    Another wash with the Zaino.

    Then i Machine Polished Using a G220 with 3M Fast Cut Plus, and 3M Ultrafina (with 3M Pads).

    Finally i hand applied Pete's 53 Carnuba Wax and Microfibre clothed it off.

    Then the lil bits, The windows were done with a mix of Ultrafina (machined) and Rainx Foaming cleaner. And the Shiny bits with Megs NXT Polish.

    Im pretty happy with the result, but the level of scratches was horrendous, the Front bumper and rear bumper have been resprayed to an appaling standard. Unsure what to do as of yet!!!!

    Why thank you. I must admit there was horrible sticky crap on it when i got out this morning, so out with the Dodo Juice Need for speed (love the smell as well lol) and a quick spruce up. Then popped on the nice new reg plates and job was a good un!
