  2. Looks pretty good in the first picture. Clay bar is a must when detailing. Don’t want to be polishing and waxing on top of all that built up dirt etc.
    Get some tire gel too makes the car look even cleaner!
  3. Yep also did meguires tyre cleaner, worked well
  4. Rim cleaner.

Will clean the inners next weekend :-)
  6. Nb that’s clay bar, then buffed a bit of ceramic wax over the top to seal them.
