How Chris Used Our Products
The 480 Celebration was the last produced 480 model in 1995 and was limited to a production run of 480 vehicles. I have owned a 480 since 1990 and this is my second having been purchased in 2013. It came with leather, and air conditioning as standard, and my vehicle is fitted with the automatic box. It is a regular attendee at Volvo Owners Club events (www.volvoclub.org.uk).
I started with washing the car (Turtle Wax Shampoo) and then set to work as follows:
The whole car was first of all done with paint restorer to bring back the colour to the magnificent cherry red - this took a considerable amount of work and time, but also gave a good finish to apply the Autoglym Super Resin Polish, which was then followed with a treatment of the extra gloss protection.
The Alloy wheels were treated and cleaned with Autoglym Clean Wheels and subsequently sealed with the Autoglym Alloy Wheel Seal (both these products are available in the Autoglym Perfect Wheels Kit, which I have just re-ordered.
Next was the glass, and in my opinion the Autoglym Car Glass Polish is some of the best on the market - it provides a coating of the glass and dries very quickly allowing it to be buffed off with no residue and a perfect clean glass.
Finally the black trim was dealt with by Autoglym Bumper and Trim Gel to bring back the black.
