    Angry Coupe Detail....well sort of

    The Car Before the wash:







    I started off with citrus snow foam courtesy of David @ Carwashnwax







    i gave the badges and griile a good clean out with a soft bristled paint brush





    Once i rinsed this off i went round the car with some turtle wax tar remover which was pretty pants, ill need to invest in some TARDIS or something similar me thinks.

    As you can see my wheels werent the cleanest so i gave them a good soak in berry wheel cleaner again from carwashnwax and they came up like this:



    I then gave the car a good wash with a zymol sponge and chemical guys Extreme Body Wash N Wax which i really like!!!!!!!

    I rinsed the car off and started to clay the car with a sonus green clay bar and chemical guys Extreme Synthetic Detailer mixed 50/50 with water as lube



    I got halfway round the car with the claying and the heavens opened so I had to abandon the detail :devil:


    BLOODY GLASGOW WEATHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    it would have blown away ben, it was shocking weather, was twice as dirty after a ten min drive anyway so would have been a waste of time to continue

    Good effort though mate.

    Could have carried on claying in the rain though

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
