Member car:

CRV/Jaaag

Going over the car with a DA is an ongoing project. It's now done bar a couple of bits that need paint.

Washed with some simoniz stuff
Bits to be DA polished done with clay mitt
Initial passes with Megs compound followed up with Poorboys black hole. Poorboys Natty's red wax then applied by hand. This smells gorgeous and is incredibly easy to use.
Tyres done with AG tyre gloop.

The before and after pics of the tailgate probably look identical but they aren't in reality.

Brera 2.2 S

Wash, clay bar, rubbing compound (Meguiars Ultimate Compound), polish, wax, leather treatment and Autoglym glass polish. All by hand - no DA polishers or anything else here. Scrubs up not too badly for an 11 year old 115k mike car 🙂

Talking Quick Wash

Meant to be working from home so a quick wash on my lunch break;

Iron Out - Alloy Wheels
Gyeon Tyre Cleaner
AG Polar Blast
Auto Finese - Lathe Shampoo
Gyeon Wet Coat
VRP

All in all took me around an hour, using the WetCoat I had to hand dry to make sure there are no wet spots which took a bit of time. Lets see how long it lasts
