Time to vote to pick a winner for February :thumbs:
My entry this month is my Spider I just gave a lengthy clean to. No photo editing apart from blurring the number plate which from reading the rules is allowed. Only other thing I did was compress them down to size to within the 200kb upload limit per picture.
Routine was as follows.
Light spray with pressure washer
Used Meguiars Hot Rims All Wheel Cleaner
Then used a Muc-Off wheel brush to get the the areas wheel polish/cleaner cannot get to
Finally sprayed off with pressure washer
Sprayed with pressure washer all round
Used cherry snow foam for first coat, gave a couple minutes to settle in
Blasted off with pressure washer
AutoChem Wash & Wax shampoo used (it was very cheap and ok for the price but I won't be using it again, nearly out of it anyway)
Again pressure washer used to rinse it off
Let to dry a little and then used AutoGlym microfiber towels to dry the car and wheels
Used AutoGlym Super Resin polish (first time I used polish, it was pretty good stuff, although I'll be getting some better applicator pads)
Then buffed off with the AutoGlym microfiber towels for polish wax
I ran out of time for waxing, I know what I need to sort now for next time to speed things up so that I can apply it
Overall the end result turned out quite nice, the polish does help giving it that extra little bit of shine. I can improve though so every attempt is a learning curve. Still it's a lot better than when I first started out washing my cars myself.
So after spending a while cleaning and polishing yesterday I thought I'd submit an entry for this month.
Most of the products used were from a local independent supplier apart from the final polish I applied (Scott's paint protection)
My car was washed, de tarred, clayed and polished twice. Once with a cutting polish to remove some fine scratches and then once with a paint protection polish. All buffed up using a dual headed machine polisher.
