    Cleaning inside the doors

    Mine are grubby beyond belief. Really filthy.

    Nobody has asked this (or i couldn't see) so it's going to be a common sense thing that escapes me

    How do you clean just inside the doors & the boot - without getting water all over your interior?

    I can see you could rub away with a wet brush or something, but then when it comes to rinsing, you'll just get water everywhere.

    I'm sure there's a simple method, but what is it?

    Go on, who's going to be the first to embarrass me lol

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

    i might be strange, but every time i wash my car the door shuts get a little wet so i run a cloth over them to remove the dirt and dry them,i also do door bottoms and rubber strip on the sill and boot and fuel filler shuts,takes 5mins extra and they are always clean as new (i also grease my hinges my self and tell the garage not to do it when it has a service cos they slap it on all over ).
