Turvey

Before And After Pics

11 posts in this topic

Usually Mrs Turvey cleans the car in our house but actually having a car I'm enjoying driving I decided I would start the washing duties :)

When we got it we noticed a couple of what looked like greasy/oily hand-prints on the bonnet so I got stuck in with car shampoo and a sponge but they didn't seem to shift. The rest of the car looked OK for an 8 year-old car, usual scratches etc but the hand-prints really started annoying me :angry:

So this weekend we flew down to Glasgow and left the car with a workmate of mine who is really into valeting etc (he's just bought a £400 buffer!!!) Seeing as we're still speaking of selling and moving onto the C-max as mentioned elsewhere he didn't give it the full works. 'Just' a cut and polish job.

Not the easiest to see in a picture but very noticeable in the flesh.

The 'culprit' was driving a hire car and everything is being sorted through them. Getting it fixed in a couple of weeks time

Hire company is our local Ford dealer who, so far at least, have been nothing short of excellent ;)

Every time I wash my car it rains the next day.

Gave mine a good steam wash yesterday evening to get moorland dust and gak off it and today it chucked down.

I really am a weather curse.

Please don't wash your car for the rest of summer :D

If it stays sunny until September I'll give your a car a full detail free of charge ;)

Extra fine polish with yellow pad applied by flex rotary , then black max glaze applied with flex DA and meguires finishing pad then two coats of brightmax vantage wax .

The Britemax stuff has gained a great reputation, especially Vantage
