    So my rents are away which leaves my dads car at home long enough for me to have some fun and make it look nice. Any one else find it relaxing?
    and i enjoy it only if the car clean is for the next 2 days it doesnt move off my drive

    Well i started nice and early. i dont have any before pictures of the car itself but i hope you think it was worth spending the time on it.

    I havnt spent loads of money on products and stuff.

    Meguairs Gold class Shampoo
    Meguairs Detailing clay kit
    Meguairs SwirlX Polish
    Meguiars NXT 2.0 wax

    My dad gets some Alloy metal cleaner from work that i dilute 1:10 with water.

    like i say its the first time ive done all this properly and i havnt used anything over than the above, no dressing or tyres unfortunatly i cant afford that much for a clean car atm, but i will when my next pay check comes through

    Engine' bay

    Before



    After




    Wheels before and After i have used the cleaner.

    Before



    After



    General pictures of my dads lovely looking 330cd.











    cheers for taking the time to look, any tips would be greatful.

    What i did notice is were ive clayed the flies off underneath on the bonnet stonechips have come up like a sore thumb as the primer underneath is white, but other than that

    im jealous of your dads car, im debating to either go for an e90 330d or a late e46 330cd! (since i love the looks and the interior)

    2006 E65 730d Sport - 2011 E93 325d Sport Convertible

    you'll have a tough job gettin the stuff i used,

    its mcdonalds heavy duty degreaser, used for cleaning all the fry vats and stuff, great stuff works a treat, i just put an old t shirt over any electrical parts and did it in sections just being careful with a 2 cloths one to get the grime and crap off the other to just take of any residue. i think it would look alot nicer after i have got some dressing for it,

    also my dads going to get some template drawn up and have plexiglass made to go over the top right and left corners, and have them powder coated matt black so it covers the electricals.
    None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.
