A good read, I would love if my GSi was that clean, and such a level of detail and care had been put into it!
However, in the real world, I use my car rain, sun, salt, snow etc and it gets used hard so wouldnt be possible to keep it like that, I like cleaning my car once a week at the most, clay bar, polish and wax once a month.

My corsa's a mess. All the pannels are different colours. I still wash it about 3 times a week. Not to that extent though. I'm gonna smach it up on a track anyway, so not too bothered.

OCD anyone? Amazing skills but wasted on an Astra I feel.

Still, horses for courses.

Try a coat of Blackfire Gloss enhancing polish topped off with Nattys Blue as this is great for Arden Blue brings out the metalic flakes out or if you feeling daring and a bit swish Collenite 476S

Looks good but have seen cars that have had less time spent on them and the paint looks just as good.

End result looks good, but what happens when he takes it out for a drive, motorways, back roads etc. Or leaves it in a car park. In 6 months time there will be stone chips on the bonnet, maybe a cracked headlight. What happens when he takes it to the main dealer for a service and they was it with industry car wash? Is he going to go through this process every time he washes his car? Car looks lovely, way over the top though.

I bet you wouldn't notice the differance between this and a car thats being Auto Glym'd or had the Megauirs treatment.
