Morning all

Hi,

Having just bought a new car and with my wife expecting a new T Roc in September I thought it was time to stock up and take proper care of both cars, many years ago I was very good with my cars cleaning them inside and out but after buying my first place there were no facilities to do it properly so it kind of fell away. Now I have a house with a decent driveway, garage, power and able to run the hose out the front it means I can get back in to it properly. I've made a few purchases to get me started;

Car - 2014 Leon FR in emocion red with black powder coated alloys

2 X buckets
2 X mitts
Multiple microfibre cloths
Drying towel
Autobrite snow foam lance, it came with magifoam so will try that out
Meguiars shampoo
Autoglym srp
Meguiars carnuba wax (for the wife's car)
Chemical guys butter wax
Wax applicator
Auto finesse total interior

I probably need to get a couple more bits but should be enough to get me started unless I've missed anything?

Welcome along.

Good choice of products

I'm not seeing clay, fallout remover or tar remover?

Something like these:

http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acata...owel-cat7.html

http://car-chem.com/store/wheel-tyre...-cleaner-500ml

https://www.shopnshine.co.uk/gtechni...d-glue-remover.

There's many, many alternatives.

One hint......

Be very careful about going on a spending spree. You'll probably end up with a garage full of stuff and then be totally confused about what does what and when to use it.

Use your products and then think about what it is you like/don't like and then ask away. You'll get loads of suggestions .

Always worth keeping an eye on the Personal Sales section.

Good luck and enjoy.

Andy.

I'm looking in to tar removers and what will be best for the wheels, I want something that will be ok for the powder coat to clean them and I'm leaning towards C5 over wheel wax at the moment.

I've never used a clay bar before, I think I may invest in one towards the end of the summer. Having an 18 month old means that I only get small windows of time so that may be a day off job to do a full prep, clean and wax.
