Bit of a clean



"Kwalitee" foam lance. This was el cheapo version "Karcher's own" with some Meg's Gold Class. No high end snow foam for me This was taken about 30-60 secs after applied, as you can imagine, my car looked like it had been snowed on.



Bit of masking to help protect my plastics



Random high ISO shot of the car, must be either post polish or post glaze as I couldn't apply the glaze when the car was outside due to the sun being out



Waiting for the sealant to dry...



And back home, all finished.... must cut the grass and sort that moss out





Obligatory bonnet reflection shot, reduced in size as I look like a gimp with a camera

I'm so confused. Didnt wash mine since one month, and I'm going to an automatic car wash !!!

I know I'm wrong but I'm too lazzie to spend half a day to wash my car (and I didn't have a backyard or a driveway to clean mine)

So could you tell me if it is better to wash with high pressure or automatic brushes ?

I wouldn't use an automated brush car wash - damages the paintwork too much. It will become very swirly - very obvious in sunny weather.

If you cant do a hand job so to speak a jet wash is the way to go (high presure)!

Last time I spent a whole afternoon cleaning the car it rained the next day I took it out

Wasn't to the standard above though - very nice.

just keep it a safe distance!

Too close and you may damage the paintwork with the spray!

Don't forget, driving an NHB Civic can do that too.
