    Smile cleaned her today!! pics!!

    well the wife was in work today so perfect opportunity to give the car a really good clean! only problem was it was hammering down with rain, sleet and snow, but i still gave a good clean regardless, had it since sept and only washed it twice so it was in a state and i was ashamed of myself, it needed TLC,
    sorry didnt get chance to get pic's before as it was bloody freezing and raining.
    this is what i done:-
    Snow foam pre rinse
    washed with megs hyperwash
    wheels with megs wheel brightner
    dryed with microfiber
    clayed glass, body work then wheels(clay was shocking after bodywork see pic)
    Meg G220 with medium pad sonus sfx 2
    followed by sonus sfx 1
    3 layers of collonite 476s
    wheels-2 coats of wheel guard
    tyres-2 coats megs endurance gel
    glass AG glass polish
    clay after body work

    bloody hell you were busy. looks great.

    but you should leave 24hrs between coats when waxing. and why the need for two coats of tyre gel? one is plenty!

    i know about the wax but got carried away lol, i always put 2 coats of gel on put one coat on then wait 10mins then another coat gives them a really shiny finish that last for ages.

    just give it the quick once over with the polisher, when the weather gets a bit better prob spring time i am gonna spend all weekend on it with the polisher cos the previous owner liked car washes or on of those wash brushes cos i can see marks not so much swirls but very fine straight scrathes along the panels, gonna invest in some megs 80# and 83# and some dodo juice and jet seal. never owned a darker car before and i am bit of a fussy git when it comes to cleaning cars,
    any advice on getting the best out of the colour??

    Looking good mate. If you want to add to that, the only thing I'd change is bin the SFX-1, replace it with either Zym0l HD Cleanse or Dodo Juice Lime Prime Lite, then o the colly, then finish it with Zaino Z8 or Dodo Juice Red Mist.

    I always do 2 coats of tyre gel aswell, it adds more depth. I leave 20 minutes between coats.
