Washed and polished the car again today. I'm a lot more enthusiastic since I had my paint work sorted the other week, so quite happy to keep on top of cleaning it.
I also decided to give the engine a wipe over:
I washed the car using the 2 bucket method, and used Meguiars NXT Car Wash shampoo:
and dried it off with the Meguiars Water Magnet Drying Towel:
This is absolutely fantastic, and soooo much better than a leather chamois.
I didn't use the first step of the Meguiars 3 stage, as the paint didn't need cleaning, as you can see in the above pictures, it's still in a decent condition since Si worked his magic.
I then used STEP 2 – Deep Crystal Polish and STEP 3 - Deep Crystal Carnauba Wax, I love the smell of the polish and the Carnauba wax.
This was all applied with a separate applicator pad for each polish/wax:
and then buffed of with a Supreme Shine Microfibre towel
The wheels were then treated with Turtle Wax NanoTech Alloy Wheel Wax, and the rubber dressed with some Silicone solution, but I can't remember the name of the actual product.
