Since I was busy waxing Sam’s new car and generally cleaning the Spider yesterday the Giulietta didn’t get a look in. Made up for it tonight with a quick snow foam, wash and dry and some new HD wax. Looks good. She’s just turned 40k.
I haven’t managed to clean the Giulietta for a while but with the nice weather I thought I’d give her a bit of a bath.
Four and a half years old and if it wasn’t for some stone chips the paintwork would be near perfect. Wheels need refurbishing though and the NSF needs straightening. Slight buckle courtesy of a Manchester City Council owned pot hole a week or two back.
A couple of weeks ago I talked about Autoglym Express Wax which is exactly the same formulation as their amazing Aqua Wax product but comes in 5 litre containers and is less than half the price.
I keep meaning to mention the tyre product i use – Autoglym Rubber Plus Cleaner 5L – again sold in 5 litre containers and better (in my opinion) than Autoglym Instant Tyre Dressing which itself is very good. I bought a can at Mitcar a couple of years ago and despite the number of cars we have and the frequency that they get cleaned I have still got more than half a can left. I spray it on then clean off the overspray that has gone on to the wheels with a cloth and normal shampoo. You can however paint it on if you wish and you can also use it on other rubber parts. Excellent stuff.
