These pics are putting me to shame.

I have my wife's new (to her) car sitting outside waiting for similar TLC and I need to get to it. Matching your results will be hard, though! What a job, hat duly doffed!

Cheers Peter

I like to try to keep the wheels as clean as I can; it definitely helps achieve the overall look of a properly clean car.

I couldn't do it with your Borrani rims, mind!!!

Absolutely outstanding work, bud. The carpets look factory fresh now, as do the plastics. The seats look like they came out of a car with 20k on it.

Keep the updates coming.

Cheers

Thanks Niall, the rotary attachment for the drill is an absolute god send! First time Iíve used one and itís the weapon for deep cleaning from now on!

The plastics arenít dressed yet, just fresh and clean. There are some marks that need further attention another day to get it there as do the seats but itís not far off

You lot and the comments in the thread help make the experience all the more worthwhile so thanks very much

I ordered them off eBay Andy, got 2 grades



https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F142609705787

£11.99 each, seller has good feedback and sells plenty of other Detailing related stuff so took a punt. One of the best detailing purchases Iíve made, takes all the labour out of large areas and massive time saver
