Sweet Merciful crap, MY CAR! - Road trip cleanse.

After an 1100km road trip which included highways at 130kph, lots of rain, and some seriously muddy dirt roads, my car was looking pretty sad.

I don't remember if this hole was here before or not...

If you're wondering why there is so much grass like mud in the wheel wells, it's because it's cow poop. The road leading into the cabin cut through farm land, so the cows would walk on the road occasionally, and poop on it.

For those following my Turtle Wax test, this is how the hood looked after the 7 days.

And here is how the water was beading before washing.

Even the inside of the doors weren't safe.

APC, Snow Foam, Detail Factory brush, and 2 buckets. Lets do this.

APC sprayed all over the whole car except the roof and hood, then covered in Autoglym Polar Blast.

Scrub Scrub.

Even at 10-15:1, this stuff has amazing cling.

The wheels, despite their appearance, cleaned up with little effort. Thanks GTechniq C5 for that.

After rinsing the car off, I pulled it out of the driveway so I could rinse away the football fields worth of dirt and grass.

And the afters. I didn't dry and LSP today, just wanted to get the mud and bugs off so they didn't damaged the paint any more than the have. Over the next couple days I'll have it coated with some new LSP, not sure which though.
