Morning all. So I decided to get up very early on Friday morning and sort the car. I have always cleaned and washed the car but I've never done a proper detail before so I must admit that I was slightly nervous.

Friday morning: wheels off, cleaned all the arches, callipers and the alloys, gave the car a really good wash and dry ready for sat.

Saturday morning: tar remover all over the car to get rid of all the nasties, clay bar all over (this was a massive surprise in the results you get) and then a really good polish, I also have a synthetic wax that works wonders on the plastic bits to get them looking very slick.

Sunday morning: all engine, have the bay a realy good scrub all the plastics and bonnet.

Just a big thanks to Jamesbaby for
All his help and advise on what to do and what products. It was a massive help so a big thank you

A few pics
1-3 from fri
4 from sat
And the rest are from today.

Going to do all the interior next. The recaros are a little shiny so need to get back that nice Matt finish.

Also don't clean your car at 5 in the morning i still can't feel my hands lol.

Great work, silver always makes you work hardest for the results! Well done, its the subtle glow that you get with a well finished silver car.

Thanks mate. I must say in a strange way it's really relaxing working on the car. Hmmm need think of what to do next after the inside.
