Rid it of sand pox!

It was an interesting look! Lovely now though!

Finally all the planets were aligned and I was able to give my filthy car a decent wash! Only been 2 months :rolleyes:

A good soak in Gtechniq snowfoam and 2 washes was all I'd planned for but for whatever reason I decided to tackle the dozens of tar spots. Then a careful going over with my handy clay mitt and another quick wash. Once dried a single coat of wax with a final buffing from my lovely fluffy cloth. Wheels had a spray of QD and tyres dressed. Fastglass on the windows. A couple of minor scuffs were removed with some Meguiars 105 which did a great job. Yet more stone chips discovered, no panel is unscathed and the bonnet and front bumper are looking rather sad in places. It's getting so bad now I beginning to think it'll need a respray!
