Cleaned and Detailed my sisters KA as it was rather neglected, thankfully as she dosen't was it too often (its a year she thinks since she last washed it! :shock: :rolleyes: ) there where little amount of swirls. 8-)

*Hosed car down,

*prewashed the whole car with Poorboys Bugsquash at 3:1 (water:Bugsquash), pre washed the whole car due to the fact it hasn't been washed for a while,

*Wheels where Sprayed with Poorboys Spray and rinse wheel cleaner,

*Then washed the car using the two bucket method with Poorboys slick and suds, 1st washed the whole car with a Microfibre Mitt and then again with a Lambs Wool Mitt due to length since last wash.

*The wheels where wiped down with a Microfibre cloth

*Rinsed car

*Dried with Poorboys 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 wipped out the PC out and with Poorboys SSR1 i polished the whole car, i used SSR1 instead of Clearkote vanilla moose as i wanted to remove some light swirls and scrathes.

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

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

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

*The Bumpers and all other external plastics where treated with Poorboys Trim restorer.

I didn't have time to do the inside as she had to go to her Boyfriends.
