Hi All,

I had a day off work, and so I thought I would look at using the various cleaning products I bought recently look after my car. Here are the results.. Although, my arms are now suffering from sunburn without realising! Enjoy!

Yes this is a generic picture thread, but never the less comments are welcome. (But not to complain it is a picture thread :) )

Damn..... That's one clean car! Probably wasn't that clean when it rolled off the production line. Good stuff. What products do you use? And it must've taken forever

Looks great. Hopefully that'll give me the motivation to crack on and give mine a spit & polish, either that or i'll resort to bribing my better half ;-)

oooh please come over to the Isle of Man!!!! I wish I had that motivation! I have loads of little black specks on mine, think it's tar spots or something, can you recommend anything to get them off?

Meguiars ultimate compound. It's a bit pricy but it removes any paint imperfection

Nice to see a few good Dodo Juice products :) Always gives a good finish. HD wax is also a very good product. Have you tried Purple Haze? It's amazing on dark colours.

@ Manxkat, have you tried clay baring your car? If that fails, try a tar and glue remover, but remember to apply a top protection after doing that.

No none what so ever you put a tiny blob on a cloth and rub the area a couple of times and it just disappears. I used it on my friends car who got side swiped and the scuff marks disappeared straight away. I use it for getting grit off the paint work. Amazing for such little effort. Highly recommend it

Always been a bit worried about the clay baring. In case I do it wrong :unsure:
