Cinq sporting and C2 vts Loeb edition



Hi everyone, new to detailing and this is my first thread

I cleaned my cinquecento sporting on sunday, took me about 6 hours and i didnt even get to do everything fully
All hand done, no hose either or jetwash, and dont have loads of money for posh brushes lol

Stages:
Prerinse with fairy liquid and water in a spray bottle, all seals and gaps etc brushed
Then wash with 2bm with fairy liquid to strip old wax etc
The car was then clayed with megs clay
The car was de-tarred with petrol in a spray bottle
Then washed with simonez wash and wax and then rinsed off with clean water
Wheels were cleaned using cheap wheel cleaner from wilko!
I then dried it, and started compounding it, took ages, using megs ulitmate compound and kent applicator pads
Once this was all buffed off, window were done with turtle wax glass polish
Exhaust polished with turtle wax metal polish and 1500 grit wet and dry
Finally waxed with Farlecra G3 Resin superwax
Didnt get any before pics as usual i forgot but got some afters and a few process pics:













New owner looking chuffed!



And Yesterday i gave my c2 vts loeb edition a quick wash and a wax
Heres some pictures from this morning as it was dark when i finished:







Beading!







Thanks for looking, feel free to comment and any advise is welcome

Love the C2, i have a design (GT style) and love it

The Cinq is cool too, my mate (yellasei on here) had a Sei that was MEGA clean, if your a member of clubcento you will have heard of him or seen his old car winning awards etc...

Top job!
