    Default blue astra gets some tlc on a budget

    just a quick taster off the car ive got today to give a clean . this will be done by hand no d/a ,s . for this ill be using a shampoo/ wheel cleaner /glass cleaner /and a all in one polish . using these as a member wanted me to try them out and get a bit off feedback . so this is why im not using the da. as ive said it is all in the prep so ill be claying the car after the wash and will see how the products fair . ill do half the car using autoglym srp ( the old one ,as i dont have the newer one.) as this is what a few members use ,and you can buy it just about anywhere ,a couple off pics off the car , also one off non beading ;, thanks ill up date later .ive given myself 3 hours to do this as i still need to clean my car for the heritage meet lol.

    right im finished this , and glad i am . it was hard work , and still have not got all the tar off it . spoke to the owner and he said never really washed it in the 3 years ive had it , so he will be happy with what ive got it looking like .

    the wheel cleaner i used was very good m ( though i only used them on wheel trims ) i give the shampoo a big thumbs up also . the glass cleaner was ok , may have been the heat , ( but i had no problems with ag glass cleaner ) . the aio went on nice a thin ,and left for a few mins then buffed off easy ( no white powder ) a few pics i took , i also did a couple using the ag srp ( as a lot off members use this ) note not much dust from this as long as you put it on thin , and i did one with srp on a white hex pad with the kestrel da pro and you can see the difference even just using ag srp . all in all happy with the products , thanks khalid
