    Clean Car

    Well got up at 9am and decided to start cleaning car for tomorrows north east meet.

    Started off with snow foam, allowed it to work its magic and drip off then applied a second foam and washed using a mitt then rinsed.

    Dried with drying towell then put some Auto Glym Polish on polishing pad and done full car, allowed to dry for about half hour then buffed off.

    Next was out with my new Auto Glym Aqua Wax which is just sprayed on the car and it smelt really fresh and seemed really good.

    Let that dry in then buffed again and its a really glossy finish and leaves paint feeling like glass.

    Finally used some rubber foam for the tyres and mud guards.

    Then since it was just about dinner time thort ill give it a hoover out and dash a good clean to remove the dust, once finished that started on the seats with some leather cleaner and conditioner, came up really really good and leather smells like new and feels alot softer.

    Really like my new 6x4 oval exhaust and carbon mirror covers.

    Heres pics, going to send a few to T.V and hope they like and ask me for a feature!

    Had about 5 neighbours come out and ask me to do theres next lol

    was a long day out to get them done but well worth it

    was something like £5 for the first 20 then £2 for everyone after that and i got 10 per side so was £100 all in.

    Bodyshop i got bonnet sprayed at couldnt believe the quality of them was hardly any prep work to do so would definatly recommend them to anyone.

    definately better bumper and exhaust

    lee exhaust was from a place near me who does custom jobs, just a 6x4 oval, they sell the tips for 40quid so if you wanted one i could get you one then have a place make you up the rest of the section.
