    Thumbs Up My 8 year old Astra after some Megiuar TLC

    Hi Guys

    Just a pic to show baby. I spent 5 hours yesterday doing the following:

    1. Wash with Megiuar's NXT Wash
    2. Clay
    3 Wash again
    4. All over buff with Megiuar's ColourX
    5. Polish with Megiuar's Gold Class Wax

    Believe it this car is 8 years old!!

    Looks good mate, but you'll need to finish off with a better LSP than gold class as it'll last about 2 days if you're lucky. This is a pic of a 10 year old astra (My old one);



    Still looks as clean today as it's now my fiancee's

    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

    It just looks like any clean car i'm afraid no matter how old or new it is, now if there were some direct sunlight shots that would probably show that 10yrs has taken its toll in terms of swirls, rids, etc.

    This is my 7yr old car a couple of months back and yeah, it looks clean and tidy but actually it is showing 7yrs of wear and tear up close, it just doesn't show in the pics



    Sorry, i'm in a bit of a negative mood today, good to see someone looking after their car though none the less!

    good work, it's very satisfying isn't it? Proves that no matter what the age with a bit of TLC any car can shine.

    All nice cars, one draw back of a white car, is that you don't see the real potential of Meguiars. Hey GazTD, what LSP do you recommend? And what difference will it make?

    Cheers!
