Proper wash of the wheels before storing.



Was a nice chance to properly see how effective my wheel cleaner actually is.

Powermaxed non acidic is in my regular wheel treatment and I like it.
Below is before and after, sprayed in the area of the weights and left for about 2 mins, then rinsed with garden hose, no agitation.



Spraying the other wheels and using a brush, they came up great, I'll be getting more when this runs out.

Finished with Korrosol but it didn't turn up very much at all, showing how well the PM stuff works.

Did this z4 yesterday, just single stage polish and tidied up the engine bay and interior. Not perfect but decent improvement.

None, it's p***ing down outside and the misses forbade me from spending 2 hours outside getting soaking wet and cold

Bit gutted as the car is desperate for a wash after the last week. Might have to nabble an hour after work tomorrow to at least put some snow foam over her.

Couldn't do the car so I just detailed an elderly neighbours drive with a nice path through the snow for them.

I once changed all my discs and pads in weather like that (hands were like ice blocks by the end). I seem to recall my neighbor laughing at me when he saw me and then bringing me a much needed cup of coffee like 5 minutes later. good times!

Haha! To think when I wrote my original post I was so careful not to write "Bit gutted as SHE is desperate for a wash after the last week" I completely forgot about the next sentence!

Can't see her enjoying it very much tbh but I could at least use the outside hot tap so she was't freezing cold...

Did a full wash with ONR, decontamination with korrosol, meth spirits and bilt hamber clay, sealed with opti seal ready for its MOT today, which it failed because the brand new Tyres I got fitted on Friday, one of them decided to grow a hole in the tread back at the garage now getting a new Tyre on.... Hopefully I will be doing a 2 stage machine polish to it this week if it passes :'(
