Dave, i bought them from www.performancemotorcare.com , and i bought a wet and dry vacuum for the garage ,from b&q in there sale,it was 1/2 price 25litre, which i am sure will come in handy ,the one i use in the garage was on its last legs
Managed to give mine a very quick wash today. Noticed a couple of chips on two of the alloys as though something's flicked up and hit them.
They were immaculate!
He's not on about cleaning the tar off with petrol he is on about doing an insurance job on it because he is that tired of the problem! "No Stevee there has to be another way!" like leaving the keys in the igntion maybe?
The paintwork doesn't look too bad Dave. I guess it's one of those things that when it's your car and you know they're there...... Have you booked her in with Jim then?
I was getting embarassed at the condition of mine (even my mate pointed out it was dirty!) so yesterday afternoon I set about giving her a wash and wax. I even gave the missus' Fiesta the same treatment.
It was a bit of a rushed job if I'm honest but she needed waxing and I plan to do a clay / polish and wax session during Easter.
I've got to say, these pics don't do it justice. She looked lovely in the sun.
This pic was a bit disappointing - look at the rear quarter and there appears to be some holograms. Will have to sort that out at Easter - hopefully claying will remove them. If anyone has any tips, I'm all ears!!
Dave, i have booked the babe in with Jim, i want a proper shine on her, i did not notice all of the scratches and swirl mark on the car when i bought it, the majority have only shown up since the sun s come out
anyway less of thet , your cars looking good,have you had the rotary on her yet?
No, I've just not had time Dave. It's going to be a full day I think - I want to clay her first and then take my time with the polisher for its first use. Besides, it really hasn't been the sort of weather to relish spending a day out car cleaning! I'm banking on some decent weather at Easter so hopefully I can get it done then.
As I was flicking through the tv channels this morning,a product on Idea World shopping channel caught my eye.
Greased Lightning Showroom Shine.A product which,according to the man cleaning his car,which looked like an Aston Martin"is a waterless wash and wax which cleans, polishes and protects in one- it's the revolutionary way to clean your car and get that "new car" look in minutes! Showroom Shine will remove dirt, grime, road film, tar, tree sap, bird droppings and paint oxidation and is safe for use on all types of paint".
Have any of you guys n girls seen this product?And what do you think about the claims made?Have you or a friend used it!?
Me.......I'm very sceptical,waxing my car without having to get the sponge and bucket out to remove the dirt and grime!!!
Waterless washing is bit of a can of worms from what I've read. Some say it works perfectly well, others say it must damage the paintwork. Personally, I'm in the latter group. A guy on anothrr forum had someone wash his car using a waterless method and he now needs the paintwork rectified due to the number of swirls.
