CYMRU ITALIA M.O.D's

Here is a thread for our members to post up pictures of what you have done to mod your car,or even if you done nothing get a picture up in here (show it off)

Would be good if you can post a picture timeline since having your Fiat.

Re: CYMRU ITALIA M.O.D's

Clay bar is brill because it lifts all the impurities off the paint work And your wheels, flys, tar, tree sap relativly easy )

You can use it as often as you want, doesn't add anything to the paint like wax just removes impurities ) I do mine about once a month

I usually use snow foam first then give it a spray off,then use autoglym conditioner and shampoo,
autoglym polish resin after that,

and for the wheels
Autoglym wheel cleaner
Then the protector
And tyre cleaner

You only really need to do it once a year. But you can use it as much as you like. Typically a clay bar is only good for about four cars worth. After that it becomes too saturated with grime to become affective. Thier awesome at removing tar and tree sap. Some use a special lubricant to help aid the bar as it wipes over the body work but I just use the suds and water

Once you use one, you'll never look back
