I wouldn't dare to call it detailing yet...

.. but I gave my beloved Volvo a good clean at the weekend as follows:

Sprayed car with APC and rinsed after a few minutes to remove worst of the muck.

Sprayed alloys with alloy wheel cleaner and allowed to work for a few minutes while I filled my buckets.

Washed the car using a cotton wash mitt, AG S&C and two buckets

Dried car with synthetic chamois.

Applied AG SRP with Megs application pad, single panel at a time, and allowed to 'set' before buffing with mf cloth.

Applied AG EGP with Megas application pad and allowed to bloom before buffing with mf.

Cleaned all windows with window cleaner and applied Black Wax to black plastics.

Quick hoover out of inside and she's done!









and a photoshopped 'arty' one...



I would not even dare to call this detailing in the sense that you guys do, more of a thorough wash and polish, but I'm quite pleased with the end results.

Next step is to get a PC and remove all the swirls!



btw - how do I get images to appear as pics, not links?
