PostSubject: Nikola's First Car Wash   19th March 2011, 22:16

Today I decided to clean my car for the first time - it was actually the first time I've ever cleaned any car Laughing

I had no method as such, just enthuiasm - to begin with at least!! I used stuff that was lying around in the garage, mainly Autoglym stuff, and bought a Meguiars mitt and drying towel Smile

I also took before and after photos because I know what you lot are like Razz

The local Polish men have James - its quite badly swirled so need to get that sorted during the summer.

As for doing yours, not sure I could face washing another one so soon Laughing

Goodness me - you lost for words?! First time for everything Razz

My arms are killing me now, and I think I need to be shown how to use wax/polish before I attempt it.
