Man am i knarked now. Gave the golf a damn good cleaning today. Washed with Meguiars NXT Generation car wash, then used Meguiars microfibre drying towel to dry off. Cleaned under arches with water and some cheapo back to black cleaner. Cleaned wheels with sponge and water. Treated tyre side walls with meguiars endurance high gloss tyre protection gel. Apllied Meguiars claybar and quik detailer to get rid of a few tar spots. And finally waxed the whole car with P21S wax. What dya reckon?

Excellent work [Y], but... you're parked under a tree! Argh! Move it before it gets peppered in tree resin!
lol. The Golf was under the tree for 5 mins. Shes now safe and well on the driveway.

I'd be out there with a beer touching her up!! Nothing like the feeling of that smooth paint! You get some funny looks off the neighbours though!!

Nice one Mike, well worth the effort!

the couple opposite me think i truly am mad. They went out at 12pm as i was washing the Golf, they came back at 5pm and i was still hard at it. I could tell they had a little comment together about me still being out cleaning it. What pees me off is he has a stunning 04 plate Audi A3 3.2 Quattro in black with full Audi sports kit, bodykit and Audi 18" rims and he NEVER EVER cleans it himself. If i had a car like his id be mad at it.

I get this all the time.."Your gonna wash all the paint off that car" or "Do you wanna do mine"

Looks really good as always Mike. Good job young man. I will have a good look tomorrow.
