oh I have to add some detail of what I did:

I drove it 50km south of Arles on insect infested unpaved roads.
Across single width tracks strewn with sand, rocks, mud and salt.
Splattered through some puddles and along a wet sand beach.





Am I doing this right?

Here is my Alfa Spider V6 Q4 Q Tronic, the photos were taken while the car was being used for a photo shoot by Modern Classics magazine who asked for a car to use through this website a few months back. The venue was The Kennels at Goodwood. The car had been treated, by me, to a full detail including:

The Body:
Auto Finesse Tar and iron remover,
Clay barred,
Autoglym Super Resin Polish,
Auto Finesse Ultra Glaze,
Zymol Atlantique wax,
Auto Finesse Crystal for the windows.

The Interior:
Auto Finesse Total Interior Cleaner,
Auto Finesse Hide Leather Cleaner,
Auto Finesse Hide Leather Conditioner,
Auto Finesse Spritz Interior Detailer.

The Wheels:
Freshly refurbed then,
Auto Finesse Tripple Polish,
Auto Finesse Mint Rims wax.
Autoglym Tire Gel.

Hope you all like the attached pics!

Purple rained, then clay bar, Poorboys glazed, then Collinite 845 insulator wax.

Wheels done with with Poorboys Blackhole glaze, and sealed again with Collinite. Tyres shined with Meguiars.
