PostSubject: Cleaning Fun!   3rd October 2009, 19:50

Well today was a good day.

I met a strange young fellow at Guildford Halfrauds at 9am sharp, spent £45 on bits and bobs and spent the next 6 hours covered in soapy water!

James and I had a clean fest, treating Jack and Bolan to a very thourugh clean. Jack had never had clay treatment before and you can really noticed the difference! I certain think James is a happy camper with the amount of dirt and tar we removed. We were a little bit useless and didn't get before pictures, but did get some after ones of the two looking SHINEY! James will put them up next week sometime when the site is playing nicely!

Great day, thank you James! Hope Josefine liked him!!

The bit on the bonnet has totally gone, this all buffed off with polish and wax. Everything else is improved I think, still there though, but I kind of expected that. The paint is smooth like glass now though, all the tar has gone, so I'm happy! Very Happy

That's good at least 99% of the car your happy with, and you have acquired new skills into the bargain! sounds like the other 1% may need some proper remedial work from a valeter at some stage!
But hey you sound happy and that's the main thing!
I wonder if you would be so kind as to give us a blow by blow account of what you did with regards to the cleaning detail when you post up your pics. Looking forward to seeing them!

Rob.

It's certainly an improvement, and my first attempt at anything like this, so I'm very happy! Very Happy

I will give a detailed write up of everything we used when I post pics! Very Happy

Although we used different polish, Moleys was better I think, the AG SRP as against the megs step 2. Anyway, I won't give too much away right now! Very Happy
