    Default Washed the GSi today......-3degrees!

    Today was my first day off after working all Christmas, so thought it about time I washed the Veccy!

    -3degrees outside but that wasn't gonna stop me.

    3 hours later.....here are the results.

    * Quick wash using the 2 bucket method
    * Claybar used on the lower half of car
    * Wheels cleaned with Bilberry Wheel Cleaner
    * Sealed with Jetseal109
    * Waxed with Nattys Blue
    * Engine cleaned and protected with Aerospace 303


    Headlights polished using Porter Cable to remove all scratches.

    Engine bay after Aerospace 303


    Front






    Front, Closeup shot


    Rear end




    New mats fitted


    Tyres and newly lowered front end




    Hope you like it, comments welcome.

    I don,t know what jamesr used on his headlights. But Meguires make a product called PlastX (i think that is how it is spelt) It is good for headlights I belive.
