New Focus Clean/polish


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

So my new Frozen white '62 plate Focus Zetec S is turning up in a week or 2, and I'm over the moon!

I've never had a new car, or ever cleaned my car other than going to a local car wash. However, I really want this one to sparkle and will be prepared to spend a good 3-4 hours every other weekend on making her gleam!

I was wondering if any of you could help me. I have NO products/tools for the job at all, other than a hose pipe and a standard kitchen sponge...

So I was wondering if anyone could advise me what products to get. Realistically, I want to be spending £50-£60 or so, and guess I need cloths as well as products, but any advise/links you could offer would be hugely appreciated. (I've seen people mentioning pressure washers, and if need be, I could borrow one from a friend)

(I guess this might not be the right area of the forum to post this... So if not, could you let me know where to go.)

Defintely read the links provided above and some general how-tos on how to wash a car properly so not to add to the swirls. Basically, bare minimum is buy two buckets, two microfibre/lambs wool mitts, and use water at low pressure. Grit + Pressure (hand or jet) = the devil :)

And once you start reading detailing world... man its a long road back ;)
