    Latest Pics (Cleaned)

    After having had my new car for about 2 weeks now it was about time it got a full detail/clean. Mgodden1989 aKa Markus offered to give me a hand in doing so and here a few of the results Excuse bad picture quality (Stupid Iphone) as they dont do the car justice in regards to how shiney it actually is.

    Started off by masking up all the little nooks and cranies so that the wax and polish didnt creep in out never come out.



    And here are a few of the finished pictures.

















    Me Flexing my limited Muscles



    Stages:

    Hosed down then washed with Megs NXT Shampoo and Halfords sheepskin wash mitt.

    Then clayed with Sonus Green clay bar.
    Washed again with NXT and wash mitt and dried with M/F cloths.
    Polished using AG Super Resin Polish, applied and buffed off with M/F cloth.

    Glazed with Poorboys Black Hole.
    Waxed with Sonax VXR wax twice.
    Wheels cleaned with Bilberry wheel cleaner.



    Cheers Mark

    For the record, my name is Mark, not Markus

    Glad you are happy with the end results!

    Promise next time I will bring a proper camera!

    Sunshine for all of 5 minutes. Literally just as we finished, rolled the car out, took a few snaps, put it back under carport, and it p'eed down with rain. Rather good timing I think!

    Lots of hard work, definately, well worth it though!
