    Opinions on my cleaning process

    Hi all, just wanted to get some opinions on my cleaning process and if there are any steps I should add or swap around?

    1) rinse with water
    2) snow foam and leave for 10 minutes
    3) rinse
    4) apply CG citrus degreaser to wheel arches, wheels and lower body of car and work in
    5) rinse
    6) apply CG bug and tar remover to windscreen and front half of body
    7) rinse
    apply CG citrus wash & gloss with foam lance and wash
    9) rinse
    10) repeat step 9 & 10 if required
    11) dry with microfibre towel
    12) use meg chrome cleaner
    13) use dodo juice red mist
    14) apply dodo juice wax

    I use a lambswool wash mish and two bucket method.

    It always looks ok but wanted to know if others do anything differently?

    Cheers

    Some of it could do with changing mate, for instance, it's no good using a top spray seal then waxing over it. Try this out:

    Clean the wheels,
    Degrease the lower half (doesn't need working, just leave it for 5 minutes)
    Snow foam, and leave for 10 minutes
    Rinse with Jetwash
    Wash with 2bm (get Maxi Suds 2 next time, W&G is crap IMO)
    Rinse
    Clay
    Wash
    Rinse
    Dry with a waffleweave drying towel (MF's aren't up to the job)
    Use Dodo Juice Lime Prime
    Apply Dodo Juice Wax, leave to cure for 20-30 minutes before buffing off
    Use meg's chrome cleaner
    Spray and wipe Dodo Red Mist
    Clean the glass
    Apply some tyre shine (Megs Endurance is the mutts nuts)

    You'll only need to do that once, then just do maintenance washes (see the guide for info). Whenever you use clay (6 monthly normally), or tar remover, you will need to re-apply wax to the area as it'll get stripped off.

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

    best way is to register with photobucket, load photos to there, then copy the image link from the bottom left of the page to your post
