Detailing a ‘Dirty Daily’ Mini With Joe Huntley
We are approaching that time of the year where the weather is just about becoming a bit more agreeable for some outdoor car care. And, if you do venture outside with the pressure washer for the first time in a while, you might just be faced with some rather gruesome and grimy cases of contaminants.
Plenty of you will have been parked up for long periods during the dreaded national lockdowns, in some cases near trees (or even worse, underneath a tree) that are shedding their leaves, sap, twigs and other debris.
In this blog, our good friend Joe Huntley has just the remedy. Plus, if you happen to have a convertible car with a fabric rood that has taken the brunt of the winter weather, you’re in luck. A fabric hood can quickly go from as-new to tired and green from the types of environmental fallout which we’ve mentioned above. But how best to bring it back to new?
Joe’s latest detailing video features an extremely dirty, ‘mouldy Mini’ including the full process of safely removing the mould from a dirty roof, before finishing to perfection. Hit the link below to get watching!
