    As I was up early and the wife wasn't, I decided to give her car a good wash. It started off like this...





    Firstly I snow foamed it using a new gun I'd bought which gave a much better, thicker foam than the karcher one I used previously.



    Followed by a wash with autoglym car shampoo and a microfiber mitt. It came up quite nicely but was in desperate need of some TLC. I gave it a coat of autoglym super resin polish and cleaned the inside while it cured.



    The leather was done with autoglym leather cleaner.



    When the SRP had cured I polished it off leaving a nice deep shine prior to waxing.



    Then a coat of autoglym HD Wax which finished it off nicely.



    And finally the wheels and glass. The alloys were sprayed with autoglym alloy seal and the tyres with autoglym tyre shine and the glass with fast glass.



    I should have shares in autoglym!!

    And this morning it's damaged where a cat has jumped up, slid down the paint and used its claws to try and stop itself! Arghhhhh

    As usual the rules are all against the motorist and home owner as it's a "roaming" animal and there is nothing I can do.

    Camera won't pic them up. And it rained last night so it's covered in dirty rain droplets
