    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Trim : XP1

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 66000

    Default Detailed my SRi...

    Basically I had a few hours this morning so I decided to give the Vectra a good clean, polish and wax. I started with getting rid of the bug and tar marks from the front and lower edges of the car, then gave it a good snowfoam and left to dwell - after a rinse it had the two bucket treatment and dried - then taken into the garage for a going over (it was far too hot to do outside).

    I wanted to use a couple of simple (off the shelf) products to show what results you can get with some effort and a little bit of time.

    I gave the car a good polish with some Auto Glym Super Resin Polish - this is best used sparingly and always use a quality applicator so you don't get those annoying 'holograms' - then I applied two coats of AutoGlym's High Definition Wax, again used sparingly keeping the applicator damp - this goes on easy and comes off easy - if its too thick or the applicator goes dry, it can powder .

    Anyway, enough of me rabbiting on and here's some pictures of the results...









    ..and a pure reflection shot...



    Thanks for looking
