    Just cleaned the car after 4 months of leaving it :-( pic heavy

    So I've been putting cleaning the car of due to the cold weather and the amount of rain recently but woke up this morning looked at the car at it annoyed me how dirty it was so I took on the challenge and done it here's a few pictures.

    Before i started.





    Then gave it a thick snow foam






    Then I rinsed it off looking better already





    Then I gave it another layer of snow foam and used a lamb mitt over it aswell





    Rinsed it all off again







    All dried off





    Wax and polished,wheels cleaned and dressed with meguiars tyre gel and black bump strips done with meguiars back to black





    Thanks for looking

    Glad the drive dried before it freezes tonight or a shiny car might be the last thing you ever saw if you slipped!

    Looks great, nice mirrors no daytime running lights needed with those

    I used to leave 1 quad bezel an odd colour on my Manta after having it sprayed one colour as traditionally every nice car I've had was an idiot magnet. Protection wors off inside 2 weeks :(

    A strange combo, but works so well, doesn't it

    Car looks much better after a good scrub too

    Took me abut 3/4 hours today start till finish but I put some autosol on the wheels and done the black bump strips on the doors I gave up doing the inside and it hasn't been done in ages so took a bit longer.
