    Talking clayed today

    spent 4 hours cleaning claying and waxing. see the story by pics.

    first i used a degreaser and a small spong all over the car, followed by alloy wheel cleaner with a tooth brush








    then a good wash and dry







    then i used the clay (couldnt belive how much dirt was still left on the panels) and finished off with autogym ultra deep polish






    comment welcome

    excellent finish - you'll also be amazed at how easy it is to clean it next time - the dirt just falls off!
