    Default 2 Day Long Clean finished. (Very Pic Heavy)

    Okay i did my once yearly deep clean as ive got the week off.

    started buy whipping the arches off and washing them down with shampoo and then with some old clay i had to get all the lumps of tar off. then treated them with AG trim protector. also jet washed the underside of the car and treated everything i could, so its spanking under there now lol.

    while the wheels were off i used Billberry Wheel Cleaner on inside and outside then polished them with some wheel wax i had left in the garage. then just used some wheel wax left over from an old turtle wax kit i had.

    Then i did the engine bay, just used diluted Gunk in a spray bottle and coverd the engine bay with the splash guard off and i de-greased that as well. then gentle jet washed it of. (i foil wrapped all my exposed electrics before anyone says anything lol). then i got some metal polish i aquired from the hanger at work lol, did all the pipeworking and then did the rubber in the rubber protectant from AG.


    lol end of Day one

    Day two.

    the car itself,

    1) Snowfoamed
    2) Meguire Gold Class Shampoo
    3) Second snowfoam
    4) Clay Barred with Meguires Mild Clay kit and DoDo Juice Born Slippy (very good btw! i find the aggresive kit leaves alot of smears of clay and feels too rough to be trusted lol)
    5) Sonus First stage Polish
    6) Sonus Second stage
    7) Sonus Final Polish
    8) AG Resin
    9) Chemical Boys Wet Look Shine Top Coat
    10) Chemical Boys XXX Wax (i only buy it for the smell lol)

    all the trim was done in AG Trim Shine/protector
    and the windows in AG Window Polish

    So heres the results with some arty farty photos, just to see the reflection more than anything. the Wet Shine is Really Really good on Silver lightning ive found, makes it litteraly like a mirror















    lol Thats your Lot!....for now

    Did it myself, sanded it down, plastic primer, colour. then i got a badge from eBay and i got some stickers made up on the Internet. i thnk the vauxhall bits a bit big but still its a nice change. the badge is the one off the MK4 Astra as the Vectra one is a little too large lol
