    Another, "I've cleaned my car and took some pics" thread

    Early finish from work today, so i set about cleaning the car.
    Started at about 4, and finished at about 8 ish.
    With the help of this lot..





















    Also used the last of my Tyre shine, which was about 1/4 of the can left, to get the tyres as black as i could, to avoid the brown look.

    Washed with AutoGlym car shampoo, and follwed with AutoGlym Super resin polish all over, except the bonnet and front bumper which got black Turtlewax colour magic stuff, to help hide the many stone chips on the front.

    These new wheels are so much easer to clean than the Snowflakes.

    Looking good, just one thing the mesh in your bumper is looking tired compared to the new mesh you have in your grill, spray some tyre shine over the mesh and give it a wipe

    It does work (mine does the same)

    I would of normally sprayed some tyre shine on the lower grille, and fog surrounds, but used it all on the tyres.

    Dude, I haven't even got my Astra yet, but I want it to look something similar to that!

    Very clean, and very smart, car!

    Well done.
