    Default Pre winter detail

    Hi guys,

    Well the time is fast approaching when people will be looking to give their car a full pre winter detail, I thought I'd just offer my 2p worth by way of a few tips.....so here you go: -

    1) Wash wheel arches, pressure washer and a loo brush are handy.

    2) Clean wheels, non acidic wheel cleaner (AG engine & Machine cleaner).

    3) Rinse then wash paintwork, use quality auto wash Megs AG etc.

    4) Dry car.

    5) Clay car, here is the link to a "How To": - http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=2894

    6) Apply a paint cleaner, Megs DC1 or AG SRP.

    7) Apply a sealant, DC2 or #21.

    8) Apply a wax, ideally Collinite 476s which is VERY durable and perfect for winter.

    9) A second coat of wax can be applied, normally after 24hours but I have done it after 2hours.

    10) At this point it's time to clean and dress all plastic and rubber including the wheel arch liners, AG Vinyl & Rubber.

    11) And finally the glass.

    And that's it job done all protected through to the spring, all that's left is to wash apply a coat of spray wax or even paste wax from time to time.
