Today I used the wife's hand held steam cleaner to get the black soot off the chrome exhaust tips. Came off in about 20 secs effortlessly. Finished with a good coat of sealant on each one

So following on from yesterday's efforts, today all wheels have been of the car and cleaned inside and out, then waxed.

Car was then de-tarred, clayed, polished and waxed and is looking fantastic, all ready for its first MOT and service next Saturday :cool:
