Megane 3 - First Detail

Spent around 6 hours today detailing the exterior of my Megane.
Although I've done the same process as below on several previous cars, this was the Megans first proper clean since she was new, some 6 years ago.

Bit of an Autoglym detail this time round haha.

Washed with a woolly mammoth mitt and Megs shampoo.
De-tarred with Autoglym's Tar Temover.. Although some stubborn bits remain..
Clayed with megs clay and Autoglym's Rapid Detailer as lube.
Washed and shampooed again, then dried.
Polished using Autoglym's Super Resin Polish and Autoglym's polishing pads.
Finally I applied Autoglym's Super Gloss Protection to the bodywork and wheels using a microfiber.
The trim was dressed in Autoglym's Bumper and Trim Gel and applied using an Autoglym polishing pad. Buffed slightly with a microfiber.
Windows and glass roof cleaned using Autoglyms glass cleaner.
Finally the tyres were dressed with Autoglym's Tyre Shine.

Overall I think she turned out ok. Would like to try and get the 'wet look' next time around though!





























Thanks for looking! Let me know what y'all think!

Lovely jubbly matey, a very underrated car. Gotta love a French motor, comfy seats, softer ride.

Cheers all. It's currently filthy & wet.. Gonna give it a good wash with Autoglyms shampoo and conditioner as soon as the rain stops and see how much of that gloss is left haha..

I imagine I'll have to top up the gel on the black trim.

Also have some stuff to try and improve the interior :P pics will follow I am sure...
