    Mileage : 55000

    Default Do I hold the record

    For the most detailing of a motor.
    As Larisa was working today. I took the advantage to put yet another coat of wax on my motor.
    It was pre-washed with snow foam.
    Then washed with Megs" gold class shampoo.
    Dried with a micro fibre cloth.
    Then I applied a coat of Victoria Concours Wax. (I consider this to be one of the best wax,s for the summer) ( Bearing only last week I put a coat of colinite 915 on)
    The windows were polished with Enzet glass polish.
    The wheels given a coat of Poorbouys wheel sealent.
    The tyres and the black plastic trim, I a gave a coat of CG Barebones Under carriage spray.
    This Victoria Concours wax. I find very easy to apply and remove, and it smells great too
    Now for the mandatory photos.





    Enjoy.

    Yep. This stuff is not really for the plastic trim. But I will keep an eye on how long it lasts and let you know. I have used many products on the black plastic trim and none of them seem to last too long. I think regular washing helps to keep them looking good though.

    Have just finished "getting out more". I well Larisa and I have spent the evening sitting in the garden of our " manor" admiring the flora and bird life.
    Now back to reality and the Telly. As the old saying goes. Give a job to a busy man. I for one know how he feels.
