    Default Snowfoamed the vectra...PIC HEAVY

    Though id take advantage of my day of work and give the vectra some much needed TLC

    Council have been gritting the roads round here for ages now and we havent seen any snow (no wonder they run out of grit) The car hadn't been cleaned in about 2 weeks and was covered in salt and grit so decided to give my snowfoam lance a go and took some before and after pics too....













    After...













    Products used were


    • Auto rae chem Cherry snowfoam and HD lance - 1 inch of snowfoam and 1 inch of cheap wash and wax
    • Washed with microfibre mit and Zymol shampoo
    • Dried with Meguires Drying towel
    • Polished with Autoglym SRP
    • Waxed with Poorboys Nattys Paste
    • Tires dressed with Meguires Endurance tire gel
    • Engine bay and plastics done with Back to Black

    Took about 3 hours all in, now lets see how long she stays this way!

    Looking good. Shame it won't look that way after you drive it, I've not cleaned mine for over 4 weeks now jot had time with work and the bad weather. Takes 3 hours to get it looking that good then 5 mins down the road to the shop and it's dirty again. All good fun though
