    Default Mer Hybrid Wax on My Vectra

    (copied from the DW post)

    Not a huge write up as it wasn't really a full detail.

    Finally got round to using my sample of Mer Hybrid Wax today and also my sample of Megs Ultimate Wash and Wax and I'm pretty pleased with the results, lets see how long it lasts

    So no before shots as to be honest the car didnt even need a clean, a QD would have sufficed but I wanted to use the sample

    Pressure washed of surface dust and the 8 week old EGP still beading nicely.

    Engine bay and arches degreases with Selclen S something I get from my Cleaning Company owning Father in law, and the pressure washed off, no scrubbing needed. Strong stuff!!!

    2BM with the Megs Ultimate Wash and Wax

    Rinsed off and dried with drying towel MFs

    Car was clayed 8 weeks ago and a feel around after the drying stage showed it didnt need it again so straight onto the Hybrid Wax application.

    Went on ok, used a foam applicator which gave a little bit of friction so i'd try an mf one next time. Left to haze and then buffed off with my new bargain £1 buffing MF as seen in the Tools section It buffed off nicely and easily though some bits needed a little QD help.

    Then a QD wipedown all over, tyres dressed with another bargain from Wilki's... CarPlan Tyre Slik. Apparently its won 10 AutoExpress awards! It went on like a spray paint lol, and was looking way too wet for my liking so i wiped off the excess (which was bound to fling) and it gave a more natural look.

    Im really happy with the look the Mer has given the car, it's much deeper and richer than it's ever been. I see a few off these colour vectras about and without blowing my own trumpet they all look pale and dull compared to mine.

    Points to note...
    The alloys need a little work (brake duster on order)
    Only the roof and front wings of the car have currently been machined, the sun shot on the wing shows almost zero swirls and this is despite my Waterless Wash routine, which is clearly working
    Please ignore the obvious damage to the front bumper it's something im building up to repairing. As are the stone chips on the bonnet


    Anyway here're the afters.
