    Default The day of the big clean......pic heavy!!

    well i finally got the chance to try out all my new gear today as the mrs give me the afternoon to myself to clean my car. I started off giving it a quick rinse, followed by my 1st go with my snow foam lance (what a great buy that was), whilst the foam was doin its thing i used my very cherry on my wheels in the foaming bottle i got with it. Then it was rinsed off and then washed/shampood using the 2 bucket method for the 1st time, then dried it with my new drying towel and i have to say it took a fraction of the time it usually takes with my old chamois and with better results too. Once it was dry out came my meguiars clay bar, got to work on the paint with that, carefully doing each panel at a time. Then it was time to polish it, using my new meguiars foam applicators, which again seemed a lot easier than the cloths i previously used and again with better effect.Then it was time to try out the collonite #915 wax, again usin foam applicator pads to apply and micro-fribre towels to remove. Then i give all the glass a good clean inside and out to finish the job properly, and used my tyre foam to make the tyres look nice n black, and lastly give the inside a squirt of coconut fresh air freshener, and here are some (well a lot lol) pics of my day, hope you like, any comments welcome

    Looking good mate the snowfoam certainly makes a difference to cleaning. I'll need to find out where to get the lance for my Kracher Washer.

    Go to Autobrite mate, an Approved Trader on this site. Mark is very good and will have the exact fitment for you.
