Washed both of ours on 28th Feb, too late for Feb, too early for March.

M/P/B :p
If its after one months compo has closed surely it should be fine for the next month?

The weekend weather was looking good but the Brera was not. She was looking dirty if you know what I mean, I had neglected her for too long so it was time make up and give her a treat.
The big three day clean. Day one Friday 11th, cleaned the wheels with Simoniz alloy wheel cleaner then washed with Auto Glym bodywork shampoo conditioner rinsed off and dried.
Day two Saturday 12th applied Auto Glym super resin polish to the paintwork buffed off and then applied a coat of Auto Glym extra gloss protection.
Day three Sunday 13th cleaned all the glass inside and out with Auto Glym car glass polish, Vacumed the inside and cleaned the leather with Simoniz leather protection wipes.
She was looking a lot better but it was still nice day and I had the time so I gave her a second coat of extra gloss protection. Job done. :beer:

Looking good. Black is a nightmare to keep clean.

Labour of love

1998 Spider. Just treated to a wash with autoglym shampoo and a wax with Harly wax. Tyres treated with autoglym tyre dressing and plastic parts with vinyl and rubber care.

I'm sure if you said you did it on 1 March we could turn a Nelsonian eye.

Right then. A month into Jaguar ownership and I finally found time to give it a proper clean.

Products used (in order):

Corporation pop
Poundland car shampoo
Autosmart fallout remover
Autosmart wheel cleaner
clay mitt with Simoniz quick detailer as lube
Autosmart platinum

Engine plastics were done with boiled linseed oil and the steering wheel with gliptone's quite spectacular scuffmaster dye.








Before and after on the steering wheel
