    Default Service off, detail on.

    Well the car never mad eit in for its service today, i've ordered a new license from dvla so when that turns up, i'll get the car booked back in and might be able to get myself a courtesy car to get home in this time.

    AS i'd already booked the time off work, i thought i'd better make good use of it, so out came the cleaning products.

    Process was:

    Spray surface dirt off with karcher
    Wheels and arches sprayed with all purpose cleaner
    Snow foam gun filled with a combo of megs soft wash gel, and some ag pressure washer stuff i picked up in halfords.
    Spray off again with karcher
    Washed using 2 bucket method with megs gold class
    Sprayed off again, and dried with megs water magnet
    Bonnet and bumper got dc1
    Whole car polished with menzerna one step acrylic jacket
    Whole car waxed with nattys blue (bonnett and roof spit shined)
    Tyres treated with megs endurance tyre gloss
    Trim with megs #38

    It was extremely windy, which didn't help, and is why a few stages were missed out, or only certain parts of the car done.

    Then it was a case of finding somewhere to take a few pics;
