My Exotica Red Grande Punto - now 6 months old...

Hi Guys & Girls.

Just wanted to show off my car a little. Had it for 6 months now and still loving it. Been reading alot on detailing world about how to clean cars properly & I think you'll agree i've had some good results.

I'll let the pics do the talking...









































Thanks for looking. James

Thanks that was the look i was going for. About 30mins after the pics were taken was driving down a duel carriageway. I had a stone chip my windscreen!!! So annoying. Going to find somewhere to get it fixed today

I used a karcher, autobright tar and glue remover, Daisey APC from tesco, autobright foam lance with super snow foam, autoglym shampoo & autoglym fallout remover, and some cheap wheel cleaner. dressed the tyres with turtle wax tyre shine. step 1 paint cleaner where needed. Removed the mats/boot liner and parcel shelf & pressure washed. Hoovered the seats & carpets.
