Hi All

Just wanted to know how other Eos members wash their car and what products they use and what shouldn't be used?

Thanks For Your Help

Even though mine has been AutoGlym'd im not really that impressed with it so do it the hard way.

If it is really dirty I start off by using a clay bar and give the car a really good clay, then a good wash using Meguiars NXT. A nice mitt and two buckets, one with a filter so all the nasties are not transferred back to the mitt.

A good dry with a microfibre cloth and im ready for the wheels.

A blast on full power with the jet wash followed by Meguiars wheel cleaner, dried with old tea towels, coat of Meguiars or Poorboys wheel polish, a coat of Meguiars wheel wax then I seal them with Poorboys sealer. The wheels take about an hour and a half but if done properly no brake dust gathers at all on the wheels for 3 months and it is just a case of a quick hose off.

To finish with the body I wax and seal it again with Poorboys product. Glass cleaned inside and out with Autoglym glass polish and a trusty piece of newspaper.

I hoover the inside, interior has been autoglym'd too and that is much better. So just a quick wipe over with an ever so slightly damp cloth.

All in all takes a good 5 hours to do properly, I just find it soo relaxing, radio on, nice supply of drinks, wonderful.

If anyone is ever interested there is an amazing forum

It is a forum dedicated on cleaning(detailing) cars and has so much stuff on it, its untrue.
