    Default Pre PVS clean......

    Well as it was a dry day and I have the day off I thought I would start to prepare the car for PVS on Sunday.
    Jet washed
    2 bucket method with autoglym
    Rinsed then Clayed
    Rinshed then dried with leather and towel
    Polished with autoglym resin polish
    Waxed with mers ultimate gold
    Then applied autoglym high gloss, left 45 mins then buffed with a microfibre...
    Cleaned alloys with autoglym wheel cleaner, dressed tyres.
    Tomorrow I will be tackling the inside and getting my stuff together for PVS (quick detailer,bucket,sponge,microfibres etc).......Lets just hope it dont rain lol.....
    Pics....Click to enlarge:













    Just a question....Im thinking about getting some headlight eyebrows, do I colourcode or carbon dip/wrap em? I say this because I am adding little exterior carbon bits, I have already got carbon as background of the opel on grill, I will hopefully be the owner of some carbon dipped opel wheel centres........Might try a photoshop mmmmmmmmmm...

    Yes on dark colours coming up better, but at least with yours and mine, they look good for longer Now you've got some wax on it, everytime you wash or get bugs/ birds leaving off, spray some Quick Detail on, replaces the layer you've washed off.

    Thats why I ran out and did it today. Forecast not good tomorrow Heavy Rain oh dear. But at least it will just run of due to the wax and sealing. Will be a bucket of water/demon shine and a drying cloth and quick detailer on the day lol.........Just hope the forecast is wrong for sunday and the sun will come out to play.

    sorry Scotty84 im not going to pvs as it clashes with the Brentwood weekend meet . but here is a couple off pics that i did after a wee clean
    . khalid






    have a look at a few old posts i did on a silver merc /mondeo . you will see you can get a good shine on light colours ,it is just that black/red/dark blue do seem to look better .

    the vectra has gone , but not far away so ill still see it form time to time
