    Default Finally gave it the 'Full Monty' today.

    After the aborted attempt the other day, it was a cracking day today and managed to give the car a complete 'Full Monty'......

    • Pressure washer rinse to get off the surface crud
    • Snow-foam with the foam attachment on pressure washer
    • Pressure washer rinse
    • Hand wash with mitt and two bucket method
    • Dry
    • Clay
    • Megs Paint Cleaner (maybe not strictly necessary after claying but hey, why not?! - might just remove finer blemishes)
    • Megs Deep Crystal Polish
    • Megs #21 sealer
    • Collinite 476s wax
    It looks beeeeautiful!

    Before anyone says , it was getting dark as I was doing the finishing touches so will take a pic tomorrow. Also, tomorrow I'll have done the interior and all the trim, engine etc.

    He'll be off looking for just the right location with the sun at the correct height in the sky.

    Either that or he's out giving it another quick coat of spray wax.

    A nice relaxing day Duncan yeah?........sure it looks superb aswell

    Remember from here on in you should not have to clay, just wash every couple of weeks and a top up of wax from time to time and that'll be that, the next time you should clay will be August/September time
