    Default If you rub any harder, you'll wear a hole in it...

    Is what my wife said!

    First proper go at detailing, as opposed to washing the car! Apologies as the camera batery needed charging so I couldn't do a before photo; but it was a weeks worth of A11 grime and really needed doing. Will prep better next time...

    Took advantage of Halfords 3 for 2 offer and bought some megs stuff. As the wife was there I couldn't go too mad, so I bought the Deep Crystal stuff, wash mitt, applicators and microfibres.

    Got home and started with a rinse, bug and tar remover, two bucket wash and then a chamois dry.

    The step 1 paint cleaner went on a dream and did an awesome job, the paint felt so smooth after and looked properly clean.

    The polish was quite hard work, but was instantly noticeable, and the same for the wax. My arms ache like billy-o!




    I know the boot is open!








    Job done , for a while...

    Mods planned at some point...debadging, sunglasses holder, vectra-c sticker, and alloys when money permit
