So the Silverstone meet is next week, which prompted me to do something about my disgustingly dirty car. It hasn't had more than a handwash since I bought it, just couldn't be bothered to break out the polish over winter. Also, every time I look closer at the paintwork, I die a little inside. Horrible orangepeel effect, and looks like the previous owner used to wash it with a wire brush.
Voila, dirty, scratched car:
I also realised just how bad the paintwork is on the front of the car. Looks like I've been peppered with machine gun fire.
So after a quick wash with Bilt Hamber Autowash (great stuff) I gave her a good claying (BH soft clay). Clearly the first time it'd been done, should've seen the state of the bar when I'd finished.
So then I attacked her with some Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine (you were right Liv, smelled lovely, like apples, lol). Afterwards, I applied a liberal coating of BH Autobalm. I was a tad overzealous, and nearly wore my arms out trying to buff the stuff off. It's great stuff, but use too much and you're done for
So, the finished product. First, another shot of that scratched wing I showed you when we begun our journey... Still not great, but a big improvement.
And, a few gratuitous reflection shots. Shame about the orangepeel, but nothing I can do about it unfortunately.
Aaaaaaand, the finished product. I'd like to dedicate this little detailing session to LVY, who demanded I put at least 5hrs work into my car today, lol.
