How Scott Used Our Products

Car in General: 1997 Vw Golf VR6 2.8 6 cylinder 5 speed, Full Leather, heated Recaros , Full stainless exhaust, BMC Induction Kit, Up rated 10mm Leads, German plates, memo team wheel , 18” BBS CH Alloys , Coilovers. Rolling Roaded @ 189.8 bhp Cleaning Process: Car is fully sprayed over with water to firstly allow loosening the dirt. Daisy apc diluted and sprayed in nozzle bottle along bottom half of car. Meguiar’s NXT generation car wash used with 2 bucket method and Sonus lambswool mitt.

Car fully rinsed off and onto starting wheels. Wheels sprayed with diluted Bilberry wheel cleaner. Left for short period of time to diminish dirt. Wheels then set about with wheel brush and sponge for faces. Brush allowing getting right into the inner of wheels. Sprayed off with cold water.

Car is fully dried with microfiber cloths. Starting on roof and working down and around. All door shuts etc dried off with separate microfiber. Usually quickly take the car a short drive to allow any excess water to come out from shut lines. Any excess water then wiped off with micro fibre.

Glass outside cleaned using Autoglym fast glass. One microfiber to apply and one to take off. Black trim is treated with either Autoglym bumper care or Meguiar’s tyre gel to allow it to be brought back to life. When I first rotary polished the car I used Meguiar’s cleaner/polish and this removed a large amount of swirling. Full car is sealed with chemical guy’s extreme top coat. Applied with applicator pad.

Paint work is finished off with P21S (R222) Concours Look Carnauba wax and applied with given applicator. Finish off with giving the wheels and protect them with chemical guys wheel guard applied with microfiber cloths. Tyres coated with Endurance High Gloss Tyre Gel applied with a cut up sponge. Interior gets treated with Autoglym leather treatment and cleaner. Sometimes I use Glyptone leather cleaner and scrub into leather with a scrubbing brush to get any stubborn dirt free. Rest of interior is hovered with vacuum and dash treated with Meguiar’s interior spray.

Engine bay: Pipes and black work treated with either bumper care/tyre gel or trim detailer. Metal polished with Meguiar's metal polish or Autosol. Thats pretty much all, then off for some photos usually !
