Nothing exciting....today I thought i'd clean my engine bay as it was looking a bit grubby. I used a strong Virosol solution and finished the plastics off with Meguiars Trim Detailer. Quite pleased with the results [:D][:eek:)]

...And last week my dad hired a Karcher 'Puzzi' to clean all the house carpets, had it over the bank holiday period so I decided to shampoo and revitalise the whole interior [:D]

Those mats look terrible.... awful random hoover marks on them.

Don't you 'stripe' them with the hoover nozzle like you do to your front lawn ?

Up the mat....down the mat....up the mat....

....and I also thought I saw a few specks of dust on the air filter cover ?

Bloody hell mate - that looks like new !!!

I did something similar with mine when i was selling the mk4 - I got a pack from Halfrauds where you degrease with this one bottle and then wash etc - when dry you spray on this kind of 'coating' stuff - engine bay detailer - like a lacquer.

It did the trick too.

am I right in thinking you used a de-greaser then blasted with the jet wash?

If not how to please [:)]

Correct, I used Virosol (citrus based degreaser) my Karcher pressure washer to blast it off [:D]
