Day spent whoring the Rallye followed by evening drive and pics!

Hello guys spent the day cleaning the Rallye today then took a few pictures.

The method i used is the 2 bucket method.

Products used -

  • Rinse car with clean water
  • Remove any bugs and road tar
  • Zymol Wash and Wax
  • Mer auto Polish x2
  • Victoria concours wax x2
Here are the pictures to show the finished product!














So guys what do you think

Looks mint (as it should!)... Might be worth investing in a snow-foam setup to avoid having to put a sponge on it for light dirtying.
