My self and Mark did a quick detail of the Rallye yesterday before Sixfields, took us 4 hours. :)

I didn't get any before pics but its was minging, i hadn't washed it for nearly 2 months, was covered in Flies! :red:

Any way

*I prewashed all the heavly soiled areas (bonnet, rear arch sills) with Poorboys Bug squash at 1:1 with water(sprayed on with a little Garden spray thing)

*I sprayed the wheels with Poorboys Spray and rinse wheel cleaner.

*Hosed the car all over.

*Then washed the car using the two bucket method with Poorboys slick and suds and using a lamps wool mitt for less soiled areas and the microfibre one for the soiled areas.

*The car was then dried with waffle weave towels.

*Clayed the car using Optimum Clay bar and Clearkote quick shine as lube and wiped with a Poorboys mega towel.

*I then used Poorboys SSR1 swirl remover to get rid of some clouding on the bonnet using a PC.

*The whole of the car was then polished with Clearkote vanilla moose.

*Then sealed with Poorboys EX-P which was left for 30 mins.

*The car was then waxed by hand (no applicator used fingers) with Dodo juice light Fantastic.

*The wheels where squirted with Spray and rinse and any dirt left was wiped off with a Microfibre cloth.

*The tyres where treated with Poorboys Bold and bright tyre dressing and left to soak in.

*The wing mirrors and door handles where treated with Poorboys Trim restorer.

That was the outside done.

We then Hovered de shity-fied the inside and treated the dash and interior plastics with Poorboys natural look dressing.

The after pics. :chill: Taken yesterday, poor light conditions.

Looked gorgeous on Saturday dude ;)

I started cleaning mine at 1pm Friday afternoon, and finished it at about 3pm Saturday afternoon :lol: Stopped at about 7pm Friday night. Didn't do much more than usual, I was just taking my time - was very relaxed that day :D

Great stuff though Matt - looks top! And well done to Mark! :D I couldn't get any of my mates to help me. They'd do it wrong and I'd end up telling them to go away. :lol:

The car looks fantastic - i'm glad the products have worked well for you :) I know just how hard it is to shine white and get reflections - and then photographing them is harder still :) I know that in the flesh (judging from my own white car) that if the pictures look like that, the car will look awesome :)
