    Default spent all easter cleaning

    Me and the wife went up to my mums for easter dinner and I ended up spending 6 hrs cleaning the car, Wife was not happy lol.

    Washed using the two bucket method with meguiars microfiber mit and nxt soap and cleaned the engine bay with autoglym engine cleaner. Paint was quite rough to feel so clayed it then washed it again. Polished with Autoglym Super Resin Polish using meguires foam pads and microfibers, put plenty of elbow grease in with this as I wanted to get any swirl marks out an I believe this polish to be quite abrasive then put on a good coat of nxt tech wax , left to cure then wiped of with microfiber towels. Done the wheels with hot rims and slicked tyres with Meguiars Endurance High Gloss Tyre Shine, Also polished the exhausts with Meguiars metal polish.
