Not great pictures but got the majority of my winter prep done today with two costs of fusso light scratch clear.

Spent longer on the interior than intended so ran out if time in the end

Washed the car and cleaned the window trim and scuttle panel then treated with carpro dlux. Tomorrow I'll be washing again and going over the car with infinity wax dark glaze followed by infinity wax dark wax and sealing the glass with infinity wax glass sealant and might polish the exhaust tip and seal with dlux. If I've got time I'm also going to treat some of the engine bay with dlux too. Interior was done two days ago including a good clean of the spare wheel well.

Just a quick wash down after last week's Glare-ing
I do like the water behaviour of the untopped glare

Next a bit of snow foam pressure washed and a very gentle two bucket wash. Finally a careful dry

By then I was out of puff for the day so back in the garage ready for the fun stuff hopefully I'll be using some MK Pure and wax at the weekend to get some proper shine on.the car.

Ive missed this so much!!

Wasnít today, but I finally made a start on the vanborghini yesterday. I have been able to see the previous sign writing for ages and the more I keep it clean the more I have been meaning to get the DA onto it.
There were some seriously heavy scratches in it, but ultimately itís a 54 plate Vivaro, thatís not been very well looked after, and has over 195K on the clock...

So, with the kids sent to the out-laws, and the OH busy doing eBay listings, I thought Iíd take a bit of time on the van.

Obsession wax snow foam.
Obsession wax shampoo.
Wonder Wheels purple alloy wheel cleaner (not the weapon on choice but the wheels havenít been started yet so itís good enough to do the job required).

Then I chose a panel. The plan is to work a strip downwards, panel at a time till the whole thing is done... I chose to work the panel behind the drivers door, and here are the results:

BH clay
Orange Hex pad using 2200 Menzerna
Red Hex pad using 3800 Menzerna
Auto Finesse Fusion wax x2 layers.

I knew the clear coat would be quite hard on this but I wasnít expecting it to be as tough as it was... Iím happy with the results though and Iím happy there are no holograms or such to see.

On my way home this evening waiting for a clear exit from a junction a transit of similar age came past me which had also clearly been cleared of any sign writing ghost, however, it hadnít been cleared of any holograms... not sure what Iíd prefer to be honest though haha
