Posted 19 January 2005 - 10:04 AM

Fortunately the weather was dry today, so I spent the morning cleaning the outside of my car [^]



First off,

wash with Zymol shampoo,

then Clay Bar the whole car,

another quick wash with Zymol,

dry with synthetic chamois,



Apply Diamond Brite Stage 1 on all body panels

Apply Diamond Brite Stage 2 ontop on stage 1



Allow 30 mins to dry before buffing off.

So while it was drying...

I washed the wheels with TFR

Dried the wheels with an old chamois

Apply tyre shine

Cleaned windows inside and out with Mr Muscle glass cleaner

Scrubbed the dash, door cards, leather seats with interior shampoo



Finally Buffed off the Diamond Brite wax with 2 Zymol Micro Fibre cloths.





Took the car down to Greenwich park to take some photos.

Hope you enjoy the pics! [:D]

That is VERY tasty, I love the little touches you've added.



Is that the Triplex aerial you have and was it factory fitted?

Sem:

Yeah it's a triplex aerial for the Satnav (it was factory fitted)

The stubby aerial is from a VW Sharan (and was donated by Baker21, thanks mate)

AWESOME Jason[8D][8D].

Its looking ALOT cleaner than after you had finished spinning it around Bluewater carpark.[;)]

Love the look of your car, your rear lights, the interior, all the little touches and the sound of the V6 + Milltek.



Amazing car[8D][8D][8D].
