I never cared much about the appearance of my cars, always focusing on keeping everything sorted underneath the bonnet first. However, last month I decided not to take it to any car wash places anymore. I'd rather take up the weekend warrior style car detailing as a hobby, as a recreational activity 😅
Fast forward today, I washed my Alfa properly for the first time in my life 🙊
Products used: BH auto-foam, BH auto-wash, BH Korrosol, Tardis, Gtechniq G6, BH auto-qd
Wheels are already ceramic coated so brake dust just washed off 💪
I guess it buffs up nicely, at least it looks great from a distance. However the amount of paint defects is just ridiculous. Stone chips, scratches, swirls, scratches, dings, hazed headlight, paint fade, you name it, it's all there 😅

Hi. Im working on getting my newly acquired Spider into shape, although on a DIY budget.
The front bumper is painted yellow, but the underlying plastic is black. This leads to some pretty visible black stone chips on the yellow paint. I have provided pictures.
Im thinking of touching up the...
Hi all, was going to start getting the car cleaned up tomorrow, i would like rear end to be smooth with no badges. Are the 156 and JTD badges stuck on or do they have the pins that go into the body work ?
