Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo Estate Post-Winter Detail

Since the weather had turned for the better (just looked at the forecast today and we're expecting snow in 2 days!) I thought I'd give my Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo estate a detail to get rid of weeks worth of crud from winter driving including a trip to Disneyland Paris and back, and also tried out one of the (too) many waxes I had bought recently!

Before pictures:











Wheels got a hit of Valet Pro Bilberry wheel cleaner, with Britemax Grimeout used on tyres and arches. Various brushes and the Dooka wheel mitt were used along with some Chemical Guys Citrus Wash & Gloss in the wheel bucket to give them a proper good clean. Decontaminated with Carpro TarX and IronX, then finished off with Autobrite Cherry Glaze and a coat of Collinite 845 (love this combo on my gloss back wheels!). Tyres got a coat of Meguiar's Endurance Tyre Gel.

Rest of the car got thoroughly pressure washed, then got a coat of Bilt Hamber Autofoam which was left to dwell for 10-15 mins while I went round the hard-to-reach areas with Meguiars APC and a detailing brush. Then a 2BM wash with Chemical Guys Citrus Wash & Gloss (first time I had use this shampoo, really impressed with it, smells good and gave plenty of suds and lubricity!) and the Gtechniq wash mitt, then decontaminated with TarX and IronX, and clayed with the G3 clay mitt. Went over the car with Autobrite Cherry Glaze, then finally a coat of Wax Planet Red October (really impressed with the finish this gave, really easy to use, just did the whole car then buffed off, and hardly used any out of the pot so it seems to go a long way!).

Really pleased with how the car ended up. Got plenty more waxes to try out, and hope to do so very soon! Here's the after pictures:









Excuse the state of this wheel, needs refurbishing!







Thanks for reading!
