If you dont have a swirl finder light, use your torch on your phone. The above picture will not show any swirls, due to no direct light source.

Yeah I did try catching a photo or two using the flash but they didn’t come out well.

Quick wash of the other half’s car meaning it was covered in bird s***.



Infinity Wax Rapid Detailer was used as a drying aid.

Multi stage wash and solid decon on this monster…





It was holing allot of tar but not allot of iron contamination. It has seen a few country road hedgerows and would really benefit from a polish to enhance the depth of the colour which is a very rewarding graphite/slate blue metallic

Finished with Bouncers DD Si as a ‘make do’ coat for the owner

Just some door protectors from Halfords. We have two kids and we have to park next to a wall so it’s a way to prevent them dinging the doors.

I have to park my 3dr Fiesta next to the wall in the garage to make the passage way to the back wide enough, being the ST it also has the big sills that make getting in and out harder teamed with long doors, Screwed an offcut of carpet to the garage wall many years ago now just in case

No pictures I'm afraid but I tried out my Garage Therapy One wheel shampoo for the first time today. I've never used a dedicated wheel shampoo before and I was very impressed with the results, my diamond cut wheels are gleaming.

I put 30ml in my IK Pro 2 foamer and topped it up with 1.5L of water then I put 20ml in my 20L wash bucket. I foamed the wheel and used my new Microfiber Madness wheel mitt to clean the wheel. After putting the wash mitt into the wash bucket I also sprayed some of the foam from the IK onto the mitt, I found this worked really well. I thought the MM wash mitt was very good, I could even get into the barrels to clean them (I haven't got a wheel brush yet) I found half a bottle of Diamondbrite Alloy Shield in my shed so I gave the wheels a spray with it and then jet washed it off. All in all I'm very, very pleased with how clean my wheels are, I'm definitely a GT One wheel shampoo convert.

Also tried out my new short trigger gun on my BigBoi jet washer, I was really impressed with it.
