Trying to save an Astra

Hi everyone,i as asked by my sis-in-law if i could do anything for their 06 black astra,it gets washed once a year (twice if its lucky) with good old f***y liquid,so i said i would see what i could do in 1 day

so in with a power wash 1st
wheels get 1st hit with bilberry,then again & then with pure undiluted bilberry
orchard autocare (OA) tar cleanse OA 'iron cleanse'
door shuts,nooks n crannies with OA citrus pre wash & detailing brushes
OA cotton candy snow-foam
washed with Megs gold class 2bm & adams wash-pad clayed with BH soft
snow-foamed again
dried off
Menz rd 3.02 on a green Hex pad via a DA
wipe down with IPA
2 coats of Purple Haze
windows with carpro cerri glass then flyby30 (2 coats on the windscreen)
plastics dressed with Megs endurance
tyres with Megs endurance

all comments & criticisms welcome







as you can see no protection




15mins later.............still clinging


iron cleanse doing its 'thing'



50/50 on the drivers door



refection shots

Good turnaround. Looks like your neighbours Focus RS could do with your skills....
