9 hours worth of cleaning in prep for a charity car meet last night.
Got alot of tar / grime / marks off the paint, but on the flip side, discovered just how poor the factory paint job is on the bootlid. 2011 car, but patches of rust coming through, patches of laquer missing, patches of bare metal where the lid is a poor fit to the body, and pinheads of rust coming through all over. I think I may be inquiring about the paint warranty sooner than I thought!
On the plus side, it does look pretty damn good all cleaned up now, top to bottom, in and out. Hoovered, interior glass cleaned, console / gauges cleaned, door shuts cleaned, de-tarred, de-bugged, power hosed, dried, tire gel and a coat of Poorboys polish all over. 9 hours in total over the weekend!
