  • Proper car cleaning

    Roughly 1 week/1 and a half week til I take delivery of my shiny new Arden Blue Corsa

    I'm getting sooooooo impatient

    Anyway, back to the purpose o the thread I actually plan to take proper care of this car and not throw it through automatic car washes or those 'pop 20 pence in for 2 minute' jobbies and wash and wax it by hand, I have seen some threads mention snow foaming and 2 bucket methods but actually have very little idea what on earth they are talking about

    Does anyone have useful knowledge, tips or links to share on how to wash cars properly achieving a decent result without spending an entire day out on the cold Yorkshire weather or spending a huge fortune on products?
