Thumbs Up Visit to Autoglym

Afternoon all.

Myself & 5 of my AROC buddies had a VIP day out at Autoglym yesterday.

We got a full tour inc. a visit to their labs.

We were looked after extremely well and everything was free of charge, inc. a fantastic lunch and a great goody bag at the end.

One of our cars was used as a demonstrator so got spruced up.

We were shown the benefits of lifeshine (the interior stuff in particular is ace) and the new clay kit they've brought out

Learnt loads of tips for using their products and how to clay properly.

I need to tweak my guide as a result.

As a long time fan of all things AG so this was a special day for me

MASSIVE thanks to David Rogers for OKing our visit and to Karl Heath for looking after us so well

It's a trade product called foaming TFR (IIRC) but with a foam gun, their pressure wash stuff will foam up too
