Well, just cleaned wife's Merc, decided to try new wax I got for Christmas - and it piddled it down, so she has a clean car, but no further...

I washed my car today.

As I went to dry the windows I felt a few spots of rain so left the drying.

Within just a few seconds it poured down so the car has had hopefully a good final rinse that doesn't need drying!

You’ve made a nice job of that bud, I’m hoping my wife’s one looks half as good once I’ve finished it.

Washed my car today -

AutoFoam
Rinse
2 Buckett Wash then
Dried off by using AG Aqua Wax -

Then.. it chucked it down - now wondering how long Aqua Wax needs to work - as it could have been no more than 5 mins between the final dry and the rain coming down!

I washed the RCZ yesterday, and if it's nice I might do it tomorrow as well. Stick some polish and wax on it, if I can be bothered.

Finally got outside to clean both cars, after many weeks in hibernation over Christmas etc (which is no excuse, i know).

Autofoam + warm water @ 5% through the pump sprayer, then pressure washed off. As ever, it removed 90% of the grime.

Then a 2bm wash with AG plain Bodywork Shampoo (the stuff thats now called "Pure Shampoo"). Both cars came up well and the FK1000p that i put on in September is still shining well, though it is beading and sheeting less well, so i think its due for replacing.

I will probably wash again soon, when I have more time and use BSD to get the cars through to the warmer weather.

Quick (two hour!) wash, top up of protection (BSD+V7 mix, H2Go on glass) and tyre shine (the brilliant new AutoGlym one)
