Just been out on a short trip with my dad and a high pitched rattle could be heard coming from the passenger side of the car. I couldn't suss out what the hell it was. I tried moving the steering side to side, tried the brakes and wipers all without success. Sod it I thought I'll have a look later after I've had a brew. Sat in the house and the noise had followed me, my dad is almost completely deaf and the noise was his hearing aids that had just been serviced at the hospital.
Prison is to good for the people who do things like this, They see it as a badge of honour. There's a group of Islands in the South Atlantic where I believe there are still thousands of land mines from the war there in the 1980's. Six months mine clearing should give them a new perspective on life and give them enough time to save up to repay every penny of the damage they caused.
Once you get into car detailing it will drain your wallet. I'm a big fan of Meguiars products but have loads of stuff I've tried and wasn't impressed with. If you really want to improve the paintwork try claying the car in between washing and polishing. You can find videos on YouTube showing you how to do it. My normal procedure is snow foam, clean off with pressure washer, wash with Meguirars shampoo & microfibre mitt, rinse, dry off with huge micro fibre towel, clay, rinse, dry, polish using a dual action polisher, wax, clean trim and finally clean the glass.
You need to be careful with some air fresheners as they can melt plastic. A friend if mine put an air freshener onto her Saab dash and it melted its way right through. The company paid up in the end for a new piece of dash.
Its very easy to use. This how I do it. Wash the car and rinse off. Mould a piece of clay into the size of a 50p piece then spray a panel with lubricant, I use Meguiars quick detailer and rub the clay over the bodywork. I do it in straight lines but others may do it another way. If the clay gets dirty fold it over until you have a clean surface. Once I have done all the car including the windows I rinse the car off again. The bodywork should now be glass smooth ready for paint correction, sealant and wax. It can take a whole day for me to do my Focus if I'm doing wash, rinse, clay, rinse, paint correction, polish and wax. The first time you do it you will be amazed at how much muck comes off your paintwork.
