OCDDetailer Entry

My Entry
(I had some personal issues last year which meant I wasn't able to attend Waxstock, all sorted now! )

I bought the car on the 18th February 2007, just over 6 years ago, having covered 42,000 miles almost completely standard, now on 69,500. The paint was very dull and needed some attention and the engine bay had never been detailed.

Its a 2001 MG ZR 105. 12 years old!

It gets a regular treatment before every show of:

Snow foam
Clay -twice a year
Cleaner fluid - if needed
Wax
Engine bay gets a good clean
Wheels and tyres cleaned and protected
Interior gets a good clean
The arches get a good clean and protecton twice a year

Last year I put the car on a ramp and protected the underside from rust also.

I have recently also gone over the whole car with my machine polisher leaving a smooth glass like finish free from swirls and fine stratches.

I have won 5 trophies with the car and it has featured in 4 magazines.

Pictures

The engine bay not long after I bought it, took a while to get it to the standard its at now!



And how clean it is now
