    Reet well i thought day off.. woman is at work till 9... ill wash the motor!

    Spent 7 hours in total only having a lindt chocolate bunny's head for my lunch.. DEVOTION!!

    Started off with snowfoaming it with G101 twice to try remove the sealant and wax to give me a good starting point..






    While this was working its magic i cleaned the wheels with auto smart wheel cleaner and a load of brushes..





    Then washed it using the 2 bucket method and a lambswool mitt..


    Then whapped oot the clay as she was as rough as a badgers ar$e after all the snow..

    This is what it looked like after the roof.. wasnt too bad..





    This is half of the boot!!!!







    Gave it another blast with the snowfoam but this time it was meguires hyper wash.. then rinsed.. and then dried..

















    Then out came the AG SRP and gave my arm a good ol' work out!

    Then out came the AG EGP of which myself and steve swear by..

    Heres it curing..





    Whislt that was doing its thang i went around and freshened the tyres up a bit and all the black plastics.. at this point a bird did a juicy turd on the windscreen..


    Then i buffed off the EGP and this is the results..

    Going to add 2 coats of collinite 476 next week.. just weather has been iffy all day but didnt rain!!

    The sun came out for these photos!!














































    Mmmmm shiny door shuts..







    Thats it folks.. you will have to excuse the poor photos.. not much of a photographer and i have no nice scenery close..
