Thanks everyone, been out in it today and it takes me back to my youth buzzing around the back roads in a small hatch back
It’s looking a bit mucky on the outside now but its there to be used
Need to crack on with touching up the stone chips next once it finishes raining so I can get some proper protection on the paintwork

Thanks for making this your first ever post on DW

I mixed up some G101 at 1:5 ratio with hot water, spray on and left to dwell for a few minutes then went over the worst bits with a wheel brush to agitate the grime then rinsed with my jet wash, if you doing this then be careful around any electrical items, although i’ve never had any problems ever.

As for the engine bay plastics, I just simply used auto glym vinyl and rubber dressing which i sprayed on quite heavy then left for 5 mins and then I wiped off any excess with a micro fibre
