  • Cleaned the Burg

    Had my burg around 2 weeks now loving every minute init.

    Cleaned it for the first time today and don't think i've done a bad job with just soapy water.
    can't afford all these cleaning products at the minute, i'm still gettin used to the weekly payments and i'm pretty skint.

    I no it sounds stupid but didn't realise how hard the alloys are to clean,
    so just wondered whats the best alloy wheel cleaner and
    wot can i use to get into all the tight spaces any help would be appreciated,

    cheers.

    Picture qualitys a bit took them on my phone.

      i use something like this for the wheels

      http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Autoglym-Hi-Te...1%7C240%3A1318

      the moor wheel wax or sealer you put on the easyer is is to get the dirt off. but take me 1/2 hr to clean the wheels.

            Nice job Buddy. It's been raining up here, so after just a short trip today, my Burg is once again covered in mud. It's such a great feeling though, when you get it all sparkling and white again. Looking good!

              I use this and it seems to work fine for me, gives a really good shine to the alloys and makes getting break dust off very easy.

                    just a quick pointer m8, get yourself a Lambs wool wash mit, and use two buckets. One with soapy water in, other with clean water. Start from the top work down, rinse mitt in clean water. Rinse more when you get lower down the car. PLEASE DONT USE A SPONGE on your motor... The wash Mitt is going to be the best tenner you spend. Save all the scratches etc.
