    Default Renault Megane CC

    Stupid me forgot to charge the battery in my camera so I had to conserve power. More pics on the next detail of a 10 year old BMW.


    Superspray with Elite snow foam.


    Usual 2 Megs bucket with grit guards one with Megs hyperwash and one clean water.

    Dried with Poorboys waffle weave towel. Autosmart Tardis used to melt the tar spots and then wiped with a cloth.

    Poorboys clay + Megs QD


    I had left my Megs wheel spoke brush at someones house so couldn't do the backs. I am going to get some new tyres this week so I will have chance to use some Megs WB and finish off with a couple of coats of Poorboys wheel sealant.

    Arches cleaned with Megs super degreaser and a bog brush. AS tardis was needed under the arches too and wiped with the same cloth as the body and then binned. This was later dressed with 303 Aerospace protectant.



    Lake country pads and Menzerna polishes.

    Paint depths were measured last week and were all good except the boot which I could see had been painted. The Megane has plastic wings so care would be needed there, the bonnet was the hardest part of all and I had to go up to RD3.02 and then refine. IPA wipe down followed by Megs #21 sealant and then #7 glaze and then Collinite 476.

    AG bumper care was used on the bumper inserts and the miles of rubber seals were treated to Poorboys trim restorer.

    Inside
    Dash cleaned with weak mix of APC and a work towel and then dressed with blackfire interior prtotector. Windows were wiped over with Megs glass cleaner. Carpets were dry vacuumed. For the shuts I used Megs last touch.

    The afters

    I use to do valeting and forecourt cleaning at the weekends for many years for extra money. If I wasn't with the girlfriend I would do it at the weekends not for the money now but just because I enjoy doing it. I have a list of 14 DIY jobs so this takes priority for an easy life.

    I don't think detailing was around years ago. I had great fun back then as there was a group of us that did it.

    I had someone stop and see me cleaning the car to say you can get it done down the road just like I have done for £14.
