    First clean of my VXR (56k warning)

    Had the afternoon off work yesterday so it was time to clean the vxr. Had it now for 1 week and this was the first time Ive cleaned it.

    Was never a massive fan of the Vauxhall Arden Blue until I bought my car, the colour is fantastic!! Even when the car is dirty it looks clean (unlike my black sri turbo).

    Massive thanks to Phil (ClarkySri-T) for the use of his garage





    Engine bay before it was cleaned









    After the engine was cleaned (not much difference)



    Headlights done







    Wheels done



    Roof before wax was applied



    Wings before wax was applied





    After wax was applied















    Exhaust tailpipe cleaned up









    Roof finished







    Had a mess around on Photoshop after and came up with these photo's....



    My favorite pic











    Paint correction and full detailing to be done very soon. Happy with hows it looking at the moment and the paint overall is pretty good.

    Great shots mate, love the PS ones that are black and white with the little colours left in. Have to admit, Arden Blue is the best colour car i have had yet!

    Milltek exhaust should be the first thing done to every VXR IMO.

    Looks nice and shiney Dale. was wondering how long it would take you to detail it

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

    Nexen tyres on a VXR? You're brave.

    Looks well, need to get my Vectra in and give it a clean, though 500miles a week on the motorway soon mucks it up again.
