    Default Time to clean the wife's Vec B.

    This was long overdue, trust me.

    Pics before -







    This was the state of the clay bar after only a quarter of the roof -



    After claying and another wash -







    Then the finished product. AG Polish, Megs 21 sealant, Megs Spray wax. Armour All Tyre foam, and AG Glass Clean -













    Opinions welcomed as ever.
    Alex

    The best thing to do is buy the Meguiars Quik Clay kit as it has full instructions. The points to remember are to keep the paintwork lubricated with a Quick Detailing Spray and clay in straight lines. When the clay bar is dirty fold it over so the dirty side is on the inside.

    Get yourself to one of the detailing days organised on here and see how the pro's do it.

    Larisa, don't let Ed try to fool you into thinking he doesn't know how to clean a car. Because I've seen him do it and he does it very well.

    Make sure he cleans your car tomorrow. When I say clean I mean really clean.
