    Default Detailed the daughters car today

    Well whilst Larisa and her daughter are enjoying themselves at the Hoar Cross Hall Eden Day Spa, I have been detailing Larisa,s daughters car, it was hard work, don,t think it had ever been done before, this is what I did to it.
    Pre-washed it with snow foam. then rinsed it off
    Hand washed it, then rinsed it off.
    Dried it.
    Masked off the black trim,to keep the polish and wax off.
    Clayed it, the clay got all the dead flys off that the washing did not remove.
    Then with the PC on a white pad, I used megs step one, a paint cleaner.
    Then on a blue pad I polished with Megs number 80 polish.
    Then with anothere blue pad a coat of megs number 21 sealent.
    Followed by hand, I put a coat of Colinite 467s on.
    I polished the window glass with the PC useing an orange stop pad with Megs glass polish.
    Then cleaned the glass with Megs glass cleaner.
    The black trim I put a coat of CG trim restoring gel on.
    Then cleaned the inside of the car, agian I don,t think that had been done before either.
    Here are some photos, they don,t do all the hard work the justice it deserves............. no doubt they will not even notice the car has been cleaned, but that is women for you, still I enjoyed it.

    I would need to do a lot of polishing to make it look like a corsa.
