Mini Full Detail

Evening all...

Had a spare couple of hours this afternoon so gave my car full detail.

Pre Clean with Valet Pro Citrus Pre-Cleaner
Hand Wash with AG Shampoo
Full Machine Polish with Dodo Juice Lime Prime
Polish with Gleem Freaks Pureflection
AG Vinyl and Rubber on exterior plastics
Autobrite Rich Tyre Gloss on the tyres
AG Fast Glass
Full Vac and Interior Clean









Really happy with the results. I've not used a DA before and my friend convinced me to have a go with his. The Car is only 3 months old.. but the paintwork is far better then it was when it was new. Really does pop in the sun! Good day had by all!!

To be honest, It's much more Orange then it appears. It's in fact Mini Volcanic Orange. The light and how polished does really change the Look of the paint.

oh just one to warn you about, dont know if its still a problem as had mine back in 2014/15. There was a hard piece of rubber on the inside of the doors that was damaging and wearing the paint away. Ive put some pictures in to show where it happens. Hopefully they've mended it as they are a brilliant little car and maybe i cant start to justify one now the fiesta seems to have take a huge leap in price for a decent model.

This is driving me nuts!

Mines still in the garage while I recover from hip replacement. Ended up with an infection so feeling really rough for the last week. Hopefully I’ll be somewhere near ready to go next week!

We looked at the orange but it wasn’t orange enough for mrs!
