Right well had the opportunity to clean a my Mums friends car so thought why not.
When it arrived I realized what her job was and my heart sank seeing as I had offered to do the interior as well!
I started off by laying down some water across the car to rinse the big pieces of dirt. I then scrubbed the arches and used some Briteclean X101.
Next stage was to moved on to the wheels using Autobrite - Purple Rain. This helped to remove some of the mess along with a wheel brush and a detailing brush. These were then rinsed. (Wheel cleaner product was also used but cannot remember which - had so much to do!)
I then took some pictures (Phone Quality) and the car really needed claying.
Before this tho, I hit the car with some snow foam. Wasn't as thick as the MagiFoam i used before so certainly returning to that product. Or perhaps I didn't have the settings at the best they could have been, only snow foamed twice so I need to get the hang of it.
I then went on to wash using noodle mits for lower doors and lambs wool mits for the rest of the bodywork with banana gloss shampoo
Decided not to really bother drying as was claying next so off I went with the megs clay bar and serious performance quick detailer. Car was then rinsed again - this was a beast of a job and took me what felt like forever!
I then went on to apply Euphoria AIO and Autoglym HD Wax. Dilute to Suit was then used on the Tyres and exterior trim. - Last shot I have of the exterior:
From this image it is clear that some panels have been resprayed. It was then that I called her up and told her the interior still had to be cleaned and that it was up to her if I still went ahead with it - she was going to be picking her up in an hour! Reply was to just do your best, not to worry! So I carried on and did what i could. The boot was full of dog hairs but she did say she had 4 of her own!
I also cleaned the rest of the interior using Fab Shampoo which removed a stain that had been bugging her
and some Briteclean X101 on the plastics. Once wiped over with a damp cloth, Pink Sheen was applied and got to say, I do love the smell :thumb:
To finish off the car was sprayed with air freshener and deodorizer and left with a new cali scents.
Total Time taken - Six Hours. Sun Burn to show for it as well
Probably missed loads off but hope you enjoyed the read
