    Astra m4 winter detail

    Hi, Been wanting to give the car a good clean for a while now but the weather has been bad up here, no before shots im afraid as time is tight,

    Wash - 2bm using Tesco pink shampoo using wool washmitt.

    Clay - Full car clayed using Bilt hamber soft clay.

    Polish - Car fully machine polished with my new Kestrel (first time using a dual action polisher), Serious Performance Fine-Cut Polish used all round with 'Cool' Orange Light Cut Pad, took a lot of swirls away, then applied Poorboys Blackhole via 'Cool' Red Finishing Pad.

    Wax - Car fully waxed with Poorboys blue nattyswax using foam pad applicator.

    Trim - Trim detailed using Einszett vinyl gel, (not to sure on this stuff)

    Tyres - Tyres dressed with Meguiars Endurance High Gloss gel.

    Total time roughly 8 hours

    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
