AutoBrite Very Cherry
Bilt Hamber Korrosol
Bilt Hamber Auto Foam
Meguiars Gold Class shampoo
AutoBrite Just The Tonic
Bilt Hamber medium clay

Great job ,as ever, Tommy

I find it odd tho that someone who doesn't bother to clean, or have their car cleaned for 6 months would go to the trouble of asking you to give it the full works Unless it's so they can get it sold easier....

Don't suppose you're too worried tho

If I'm honest, I think Tommy just bought a new car.

I think I need to help this thread, otherwise an honourable gentleman getting anxious.

I was doing it last weekend and when I finished it was getting darker,, hence the photo. At least it is different from all the 'clouds reflection'

It's my next door neighbours car and I got sick of seeing it filthy so offered him a discount and he said yes...

Member car:

CRV/Jaaag

A late entry. Same old shed but I've really tried this time.

Products used:

99p car shampoo from home Bargains
Clay Mitt
Autosmart Platinum
Autosmart topaz over the top of the Platinum
Autosmart highstyle on the trim and tyres
Simoniz wheel sealer (which has no discernible effect whatsoever).
6 sausages
2 oven bottom muffins
A small amount of ketchup
1 cup of coffee

My son ate 3 of the sausages on 1 oven bottom muffin but made no other contribution.
