First proper clean :)

Thought I would share, I am kind like that

Gave my car a decent clean and polish today (first time ever since owning) took a few hours, I had originally cleaned the wheels yesterday so that was good

So
  • Wheels off, cleaned with Auto direct wheel cleaner (acid free) and bucket of Warm water with some Chemical guys citrus wash.Then went over wheels With Iron X. To finish I used Chemical Guys Hyper coat which provides a nice shine

For the Bodywork
  • Pre spray bottom halfs of doors using Megs All purpose cleaner
  • Pressure wash of as much dusts and dirt as possible
  • Clean using 2 bucket method, using lambswool mitt and Chemical guys citrus wash
  • Rinse with pressure washer
  • Wipe main bodywork panels down with squeegy blade
  • Spray body work with Megs last touch
  • Dry using two Sonus drying towels
  • Dry wheels using Megs last touch and Microfibre
  • Wipe insides of door shuts using auto direct jaffa clean on microfibre
  • Apply Chemical guys wet mirror finish all over
  • Wipe of with microfibre
  • Apply Dodo juice purple haze all over
  • Wipe of with microfibre
  • Clean glass with megs bubblegum glass cleaner
  • Apply rain x all round with 2 applications to windscreen
  • Wipe of with microfibre
  • Apply chemical guys hypercoat to wheels again
  • Apply Zanio Z-8 grand finale sealant all round

Interior
  • Wash rubber mats and finish with Chemical guys Hypercoat
  • Hoover all round
  • Apply Chemical guys natual look to dash, door panels and hard wearing leather areas as well as any trim you can see
  • Spray auto glym Autofresh to the floor

stand back and hope you never have to use it
