    Default Preparing my Vec to be a wedding car :)

    My SIL is getting married in about a month and has asked if she can go to her wedding in my Vec so I've got to make it mega shiny couple of questions around making it as good as possible:

    - how can I remove polish marks from the plastic trim?
    - best way to give the seats a good clean and remove marks from them?
    - can I prepare the car in advance so I just need to give it a quick once over on the morning?

    Thanks in advance.

    Tape the plastic trims or use plastic cleaner or black to black and for a major valet I would hire a carpet cleaner there about 30quid for the day

    Yep I do all that for around that price
    Seats can be cleaned with autoglym interior shampoo and a damp microfiber cloth
    Trim polish that can come off with a scrub or with some trim care trim dressing
    And for a quick going over use a quick detailer spray

    Depends how good a job you want done, if you have a look around you won't get a lot for £30.

    You can prepare your car the weekend before, will you use it for work that week?

    Depending on the use after preparation will depend what will need to be done on that morning.

    A good deep clean the weekend, or if you have the time during the week of the wedding, then just wash, wax, tyres and hoover the night before.

    A Vax will sort the seats out.
