35i - A few bits of detailing

Post by motomikey » Sat May 01, 2021 9:27 pm

Not getting time to detail the whole car in one sitting, so doing it a bit piecemeal. Here’s some of today’s efforts:

Wheel cleaned with Megs Wheel Brightener/APC/Tardis, sealed with Klass AIO & Poorboys Wheel Sealant. Tyre dressed with Megs Endurance
Wheel arch cleaned with Megs APC and dressed with AG Vinyl & Rubber Care
Brake bell polished with Brilliant metal polishes (and a toothbrush)
Bonnet and front bumper clayed, machine polished, sealed with Klass AIO, Sealant Glaze and topped with Victoria Wax Concourse

Some piccies...

So that’s now about a 1/4 of the car done 8)

Don’t lie to me....that wheel is brand new isn’t it?

Mine certainly don’t look as good as that 😂😂😂

(That wheel is spotless, awesome 👍)

Looks great!

Did you put some copper grease back on the hubs?

Cheers Tom. No, just made sure I didn’t clean off the existing copper grease. The All Purpose Cleaner wasn’t strong enough to remove that.
