    My cars first clean and clay'd

    Right my car hasn't been cleaned in over 4 weeks or so! So set of to give the car a good clean. Here's what i used -

    Simonez car wash (Don't laugh i forgot to get some decent stuff)
    Autoglym super resin polish
    Megs quick clay
    Collinite 476 wax
    Simonez tyre black
    Autoglym glass polish
    Autoglym bumper care
    Various microfibre clothes
    Megs drying towel

    I done it in the following order

    Wash
    Dry
    Clay
    Wash
    Dry
    Polish
    Wax

    Here's some pictures. Sun is coming out now so will take some more.

    Dirty before pics









    Clean clay



    After the bonnet



    After the whole car



    Car after clay



    Car all done









    Was really impressed with the bonnet, it never really came up good after a polish and never felt as smooth as the rest of the car! But after the clay it all feels nice and smooth.

    Comments - good and bad welcome. What do you think? First time at claying and using a decent wax on the car

    looking good!

    personally, i wouldnt have bothered to dry the car before claying as it will help lubricate

    one thing tho..... you missed a bit
    No longer GSi power
    Dirty Derv Decked Vec is the way forward for me!

    It's good! I don't rate the Simonez tyre black though.

    Its the new look one? I can't find a good one that lasts though? Heard the Armour all one is good? But halfords didn't have much.

    I use Megs High Endurance Gloss for the tyres. Apply it with a sponge applicator, lasts for ages.
