    Cool Got a Muddy Problem!

    Morning guys.

    Okay here's my dilemma. So I spend hours washing & waxing and generally looking after my car almost every weekend. Unfortunately I have to go down a 10 mile rally course to get to work, and it literally looks like shit again the next day!

    Is there anything I can buy that I can put on after washing, that yh mud will stick to, allowing me to just blast it off with the Karcher every couple of days?

    I've been giving it a blast but when it drys the mud shows up again still on the paintwork!

    Only thing to do mate is to wash it down with the jet wash and wash it with a wash mitt, only way really to do it.

    If the car is waxed then it'll help stop the mud sticking so might blast off easier.

    If it isn't waxed then a full clay, polish then wax will get it prepared well to start things off from there.

    From what nry has said mate, might be worth waiting and seeing what happens in a couple of weeks once I have clayed and polished it for you, see how it goes with washing after its got some Petes 53 wax on it.

    a couple of coats of jetseal 109 should make cleaning easier , and to make it last longer you can apply a coat of wax on top of jetseal although make sure the wax will bond to jetseal , most do but there are some out there that won`t
