      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. So our C-Max is due on 11th June. I have already ordered the Osram Nightbreaker Plus bulbs ready to fit on arrival. I'd also like to change the sidelight and number plate bulbs to canbis error free LED. Is anyone able to confirm the bulb type for the number plate please? Thanks Chris
  2. Just to add that Dodo Juice Lime Prime is abrasive, and Lime Prime Lite doesn't have the cut in it Chris
  3. Follow the instructions and you shouldn't have a problem. With most of them you never should let them dry, as it can potentially stain trim and plastics etc. Rinse VERY well too. Best not to use them in direct sunlight if I'm honest. How much time do you want to be spending maintaining the finish? Chris

  5. Scratch Removers

    SRP doesn't have much cut in it, so will more likely fill than remove or reduce it. How deep is it? Chris
  6. Nice Clean Car

    Looking good and glossy there Chris
  7. They react with metal particles, dissolving them thereby lifting them off the paint surface. The bleeding effect shows where the contamination is being dissolved. WaxTec has one which is very good value http://www.wax-tec.co.uk/index.php/component/virtuemart/exterior/fall-off-detail?Itemid=0 Red Mist is a hybrid quick detailing spray / sealant. HTH
  8. Best Way To Clean A Car

    What paint protection has been put on? A sponge and chamois are no-no for the same reason, grit becomes trapped on the face of them, which you then move around on the paint surface, creating fine scratches. A wash mitt is essential, as well as two buckets (preferably with grit guards) and microfibre drying towels. And yes deep pockets too!
  9. You'd be surprised what is on the paint of a new car. Don't just clay, think about using a bleeding fallout remover too, as these will dissolve the metal fragments present. I had a brand new B-Max to protect, it was straight from the plant to the dock to dealer, but was absolutely covered in industrial fallout.

    Nice result there Is that the 3M Perfect-It pads I spy there? Did he use the 3M polishes too? Chris
  11. Professional Valet Or Home Valet?

    I may be biased, but a proper professional valeter (not the hand car washes ) will have the equipment, insurance and techniques to get a better result. If you fancy tackling the exterior yourself, then just have the interior valeted so all your fabrics etc are cleaned. Then you can spend your time on the exterior.
  12. Well, Apparently You're Supposed To Wash Cars?

    A clay bar is designed to remove bonded contaminants from the paint surface. Even if you have just cleaned the car, if the surface feels rough, then there are bonded bits on the paint, http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/accessories-tyres/35837/best-clay-bar
  13. Engine Cleaning.

    And be VERY careful around any connectors and obviously the ECU. They weren't built for withstanding water under high pressure. To be honest I don't offer that service to my customers.
