I picked up some Malco Rejuvenator and a sample pot of some new wax. Then cracked on with removing swirls in my classic Beetle.

She got the full shebang yesterday...

PW, 2BM, clay bar, tar removal, polish, IPA, C1.5 Seal.

Though I think I've done more harm than good with the polish... I got the marring out that I caused with the clay bar, but polishing by hand I've managed to get a bit of hologramming.

I'll get better polishing with practice, and she'll do for now!

I managed to get round to doing the Gf's beetle on saturday, the poor thing has only been washed once or twice this year.

I gave it a rinse down with PW.

I then cleaned the wheels using wonder wheels and the brush that comes with it.

Started with this.

Using wonder wheels and the little brush which turned out to be better then I thought.

After rinsing them down again with the PW, once dry gave me this comparison.

I then washed the car using the 2bm with Kleen Freaks shampoo, and going round the car with apc in a spray bottle and another brush getting in the little nooks and crannys and the door jams.

Starting with this.

Leaving me with this.

After it was washed, I dried the car using my CG wooly mammoth and meguiars ultimate QD as a drying aid.

I then polished the bonnet, boot & wings with SRP, I'd never used SRP until then & I'm quite happy with the results, it's really easy to apply and really easy to buff off leaving decent results.

A start to finish photo.

and a couple of finished photo's which aren't that great.

and this photo again because I just love how deep and glossy the paint looks when cleaned, tbh I should clean it more often because it's such a rewarding colour to clean.

All pictures were taken on my iPhone so not great amazing quality but I'm happy with how they came out.
