    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default Seven hours detailing and I'm knackered...

    ...but it was worth it

    rinsed with jet wash
    shampoo'd with Autoglym car shampoo with jet wash
    washed down with a mitt (two buckets naturally)
    rinsed again with jet wash
    sprayed with detailing spray
    dried with a large drying towel
    full polish with Autoglym EGP
    wheels all cleaned with Autoglym wheel cleaner
    wheels rinsed
    wheels dried with drying towel
    tyres dressed
    tailgate door shuts cleaned and polished
    all plastics and rubbers externally dressed with Autoglym vinyl and rubber care
    all plastics and rubbers inside boot dressed with Autoglym vinyl and rubber care
    all glass cleaned with Mr Muscle glass cleaner
    tailpipes and fog surrounds polished with autosol chrome polish

    This has taken me all day lol, I'm absolutely shattered but the car looks the best it has for quite some while now.

    Lol, she's been at work all day. One of the advantages of being made redundant, I have plenty of time to do stuff like this at the moment (although it's nearly killed me)

    In the aforementioned "her"s kitchen waiting for me to be bothered to find somewhere to spray it up for me lol

    Yeah, just the inside to do now (that's Amy's job for the evening lol). In the dry they're as good as if not better than the michelin's give or take the slight drift you get because of the wider tyres, had a little rain yesterday and they were a little skittish, but the roads were quite greasy after the first rain in ages.
