    Default Why are you washin ya car again.......?

    Ever had this said to you.....Misssus says it all the time! This is why I do it:

    Before (ish...Had given the car a soak in ordinary water to loosen the dirt):



    Halfway through a wash ( MEgs Gold Class)



    What dirt!! (I went through 4 buckeys of clean water!)



    Wheel before:


    After (Meg wheel cleaner and brush) Look there's a caliper in there!


    After each wheel I hose the brush down to get rid of the dirt:

    Tada!!! 3 hours and a coat of gold class wax....will add some NXT in the week!


    Used Megs Gold Class washand liquid wax, Glass cleaner, Alloy Wheel cleaner, Tyre finish, Water magnet Wheel brush, micro fibre cloths and mitt.


    With my car lookin so clean I thougt I'd give whats left of hers a 45 minute rush job. She has a horse and the car is normally a smelly shade of brown from the farm. I probably missed a bit of the roof....I can't reach the middle.

    Before


    After!

    I did it this way cause it always amazes me how well the colour hides the dirt. When I got to he boot and did one side and stepped back I thought OMG....Then thought gotta get a photo of that and then the rest is...well....Spam!

    It wasnt till I got into this site that I realised the amount of dirt I can get off using the two bucket method....hate to think how many cars I've wrecked in the past!

    Missus method is the carwash up the road or if she wants a good job....the Amercan Car wash Co!
