Clean again!

Well, after endless weeks of being sat under a blanket of snow the weather cleared and I got a chance to spend the day washing the Type-R. Oh, it feels good!

I used Bilberry wheel cleaner for the first time. I've had it for nearly 2 years but never used it. I must say, I was very very impressed! It's great stuff. Highly recommended.

I used a Chemical Guys shampoo, Autoglym SRP (totally underated) and Jetseal 109. Again, I haven't used Jetseal for a while but I didn't fancy a proper paste wax as it was getting dark and I find the Jetseal quicker to apply/remove.

I also did the glass with Carlack sealant. If you haven't used this, it's pretty cool. If you get it done right the rain just rolls off the windscreen. If you're going over about 40mph you don't even need your wipers in the rain!

Here's a few photos (all after!)

Nice results
Jetseal 109 is good stuff and, as you say, easy to work with
Its particularly good on Alloys BTW

I tend to use a Poorboys wheel sealant which has always worked well. I have heard that Jetseal is awesome on wheels too. Maybe I'll give it a try next time...although I need to order some more! I'm running low...

Great work, loving the top pic.

Makes me feel bad for not cleaning mine, but as I'm moving house in the next couple of weeks i don't think I'll get chance.

Hope the house move goes well dude. Just don't look directly at your car between now and then...
