When i had my old car, i hated cleaning it! It got a wash every blue moon and i liked the dirty look! haha!
As soon as i got my astra it was a different story! I liked to keep it clean especialy on the outside, and i finally took pride in it!
Usually it gets washed every 2 weeks, as it sits outside but the other week, it was a nice day, so i decided to give it a full treatment.....in my eyes!
Being but a mere ex-student, and waiting on a job, i have very little money for expensive products! Therefore i used a simple halfords wash shampoo, carplan polish (its not looking promising is it), carplan polish mitt, autoglym plastic cleaner stuff and carnauba wax from brazil (the stuff they use on jelly beans 2 give it its shine, interesting fact)
And i am pretty pleased with the results. Here they are:
before , im gonna give it a claybar and a good few coats of wax! it may be the one of the more basic astras, but it looks good when all cleaned up!
