    Well seeing the weather was not bad and the car was looking pretty horid, decided to give the old girl a good clean.

    Had been detailed last year so just keeping on top of things. Main attention was the outside as was covered with pollen fallout and general crap from the trees.

    Dont get me wrong the paintwork is not mint, it has the usually marks, scratches and nicks etc but was pleased with the results.

    Snowfoamed
    Rinsed with pressure wash on low setting
    Wheels washed with mixture of brushes using Bilberry wheel cleaner.
    Washed using the two bucket method using AS Duet
    AS liquid wax used as a wash rinse
    Dryed with miracle dryer ultra plush plus more MF towels
    Wheels and trim dressed with Chemical Guys new look trim gel
    Exhaust pipes cleaned and polished using Autosol metal polish
    Finally added a layer of Victoria Concours Wax

    Oh and final thanks to little Kyle...the hose connector was knackered so he was in charge of switching water on and off

    Just my luck it started to rain after!!!
