As you can see the exhaust tips were manky and nasty (probably never polished by previous owner)

Hi Guys. I wanted to do a little winter prep on the car.

I took a few snaps. Before and After and also During.

Before:

As you can see its not too dirty. But still in need of a clean.

Started with some snow foam. Used AB Lance and a mix of G101, Avalanche and CarChem. Maybe did not need to use all of them but had spare so thought I would use them (together).

Next up was the wheels. I cleaned with Bilt Hamber Auto Wheel (one of my favourite products) and tyres cleaned with various brushes and Autosmart G101. Purple Wheel time!!!

Then rinsed and washed with Carchem Shampoo (love this stuff). Then some iron fallout and tar removal. I used Bilt Hamber Korrosol and Autosmart Tardis.

Car was then foamed and washed again with the same stuff used previously.

I then used Auto Finesse Tripple and two coats of Gtechniq C2V3 for some added protection. It got dark so did not get a chance to take any more pictures but still needed to do the interior and exhausts.

I woke up to some nice beading!!

I started on the inside of the car.

I used good ol' trusty Henry to hoover the whole car. Interior was cleaned with Autosmart G101 (10:1) and Autoglym Interior Shampoo. Then leather was cleaned with Gliptone Leather Cleaner and Alcantara cleaned with Race Glaze Alcantara Cleaner.

Engine Bay also had a light clean. Used Autosmart G101 (Neat) and Auto Finesse Dressle to dress.
