    Midweek clean & Polish...(few poor pics)

    You all know what its like - an intended 'quick' hose down to remove the dust off a black car, somehow turns into a fully fledged cleaning session.

    Sad thing is, I only popped to the bodyshop to settle a bill and then the steamer caught my eye

    Anyway...tonight the car was treated to:

    -Megs NXT shampoo using megs washmit
    -Terry towel dried
    -Megs NXT wax
    -AG window polish
    -AG Resin polish on wheels
    -AG vinyl & rubber care for engine bay dressing
    -Microfibre cloth to buff off

    I did grab some pictures when it was lighter, but the camera decided not to save them, hence dark pictures as they were taken 10 minutes ago on the driveway.















    Immediate plans now is Regal Phase II and a delocked drivers door handle. Should be completed within the next week or two.

    Bloody impressive as always. You do keep a clean car mate.

    Im teaching the paint to love me. When I got the car, the paint wasnt immaculate as described so some fresh paint and polish was needed.
    Only takes half hour to splash some Megs over it anyway.

    Amazing the difference it makes. My wee runaround fiesta had never seen polish/wax in it's life and looked a mess. After a few coats of NXT wax the paint work is like new.

    Very satisfying when you see the end result.
