    Vehicle : vectra

    Trim : gsi

    Engine : 3.2 v6

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 69,000

    Cool cleaned the vectra!!

    well thought i'd give the car a decent clean today so spent 6 and a half hours going over just the outside of the car!! arms feel ready to drop off but was well worth it in the end here is what i did:

    cleaned the wheels
    pressure washed the whole car
    washed with turtle wax platinum edition car wash using 2 bucket method
    rinsed off
    clay bar
    washed it again using 2 bucket method
    dried the whole car off
    cleaned the windows and dressed the tyres up whilst waiting for the paint to dry off completely
    used swirl-x to get rid of the horrible marks
    then gave it 2 coats of turtle wax platinum edition wax as the clouds were starting to loom over. then went to take some pics (not great pics due to crappy camera)

















    quite pleased with it first time i have used clay bar and was very impressed with the results!!
