So yesterday didnt have anything planned other then to watch the villa.
With winter drawing ever present with the colder weather and muddier lanes, i decided to give it a good clean and treatment for the winter.
I didnt take any before pictures but twiggo will back me up in saying it didnt look short of a tractor with how muddy it was.
Megs Clay lubed with Dilute AG shampoo
AG tar Remover
AG Glass Polish
AG Bumper care
AG HD wax
Tyres dressed with a can of tyre slick tyre dressing as all that was at hand
AG rubber and plastic trim protection
Like i say unfortunately no before pictures, but it was a state.
As i was at the missus's house i didnt have lance or foam handy so i started at 11am by cleaning the wheels and under the arches, various brushes used.
washed the car with megs gold class, lambs wool mitt, then rinsed down and dryed. Opened and slammed doors and boot to release as much standing water as possible, then i rolled it into the garage and went to watch villa beat chelsea .
Came back to the car went over with microfibre to remove any dust that had settled, then clayed car and used AG tar remover to get rid of stubborn tar spots and flies.
Then i started with the polish, i applied 3 coats over the space of 3 hours, Just before i started with the polish i applied some paint renovator in straight motions just on the passenger door were the paint had faded.
while i left the polish to dry i did various other jobs, interior cleaned, AG glass polish and also bumper care was applied to various parts plastics and rubber seals on the car and door shuts.
Then i went on to do the extra gloss protection, while i was letting that cure i detailed the engine bay and also just touched up on any smears on the glass from the rubber care. ( rubber care is aweful if you get it on the paint or glass, goes incredibly greasy if you dont turn the cloth frequently when removing it off paint work, i found out the hardway :( )
Finally applied HD wax and gave a final wipe over with a nice fresh microfibre.
Final results. incredibly chuffed with my hard work, unfortunately under artificial light so doesnt do it loads of justice, packed up shop at about 9pm
Hope you all like
