Cleaned my car over the past couple of day, just doing a wee bit at a time.

Took a few pictures, not very good because they are from a dark garage with not much space but thought i'd post some.

I've changed my opinion of clay bars, the paint was a bit filthy because of the winter roads, really made a difference this time whereas the last time I used it the paint was quite clean and it done nothing.

Washed, clayed, polished, waxed.

Nice

Where do you get clay bars from? What's the technique of using them also?

very nice john, love the seats

http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/detailing-clay/cat_9.html - link for clay bars, graham, i got the yellow coloured stuff, although it was on offer for 9.95 for 3 bars at the time i bought it (cheap).

clean the car then spray a quick detailer as a lube and wipe the clay bar over the paintwork, just don't wipe it over a dry area or it will stick to the paint and possibly pull it off

Yip as ben says for the clay, easy to use, just a bit of elbow grease.

I like the seats too apart from the fact they are impossible to keep clean

Wish my garage was big enough to be able to polish a car in it.

Can only just fit my Lupo in ours

I wiped the spray stuff off with a cloth, washing wouldn't do any harm but by the time i had got it in the garage the rain had started so wasn't taking it back out.
