  • Finally going to detail the car....

    Yes I am going to clean my car.

    Just gone out and spent £100 (hubbie nearly had heart attack!) on cleaning products - I had none before

    As per previous help requested I have brought....
    Megs.. step 1,2&3.
    Megs wheel cleaner
    Megs Glass cleaner
    Megs Exhaust/metal polish
    Megs Tyre black gloss stuff
    Zymol Car wash
    and Megs, mits, polishing pads and cloth things

    I was going to do it today but we got home too late from shopping... so as it looks to be nice tomorrow. I am going over it top to bottom.

    This is her very first car wash by me and also polish....

            PB had everything but the clay

            Did you get the megs carwash?? I did pick it up but swapped it last min for the zymol one.

            I got a little addicted to buying stuff tho. Should have just stuck to the original list, would be £50 richer!

                    I hope that either Nottingham, Melton or Stamford have it in tomorrow... if not will have to do this one without it.

                    Will be upset knowin that it cud have been better shine etc if i could have got my hands on it.

                      the problem is if you dont clay it all the crap thats on the paintwork just gets sealed in by the waxing and the polishing

                      (im starting to sound like marc now)

                        I was starting to feel like him when I was in there earlier... was waying up which shampoo and if the microfiber polish towels will leave swirls. And should I really get a mit as that's risky and what way do I wash? do I go in circles, across the car back and forth... think my hubbie was thinking I was going insane! or turning into a OCD freak.

                          this is all marcs fault, a year ago it would of been down to the local jet wash and let it drip dry but now i wouldnt dream of doing that, VXRMARC has alot to answer for

                            Oh yes... that's £100 I could have spent on the puppy or me!!!

                            The closest I got to this before was buying autoglym and doin my car once... other than that its jetwash, hubbie, arc wash or handwash centre.

                            Let's hope we have nice weather.

                            what colour is your VXR?
