Re: Draigflag's ABARTH 500 (new thread!).

Spent 4.5 hours doing mine with the AG stuff yesterday. Pressure wash, wash, rinse, dry, Clay, Polish (AG SRP) then wheels, tyres, black trim etc. Looks Amazing, pics don't really do her justice but hey. The car has never been so clean, the clay transformed the look and feel of the paint. Better than new i'd say!

Yes, it was the AG Clay kit. Top quality stuff, a tad expensive unless you get it on offer, but considering you probably only need to clay a car once, maybe twice a year, it's more than worth it!

The paintwork feels like slik. Shame it's raining outside now, car is getting wet

Get some Gtechnics G1 for your windscreen then take off your wiper blades

Autoglyms good stuff I love SRP.

if you want to take it to the next level then try detailing as I know you love your car so much you might like it.

This is detailing? I did every part of the car, including the wheel arch liners! But i can never be bothered to do the inside, not been done for months...

Re: Draigflag's ABARTH 500 (new thread!).

Foxy likes posing in front of the Abarth! ;D

Another thing, with the quick detailer i got as a "clay lube" it's very easy to spray on and buff off with the MF cloth you get with it. Handy if you've just been for a little drive and there's a bit of dirt built up, the spray and wipe restores that just waxed look (and feel) without the risk of scratching!

I've never used rainX. The shampoo i use says it "Adds wax" which is usually utter B/S, but this stuff seems to work really well (it is turtle wax after all) but the beading from the windows is very good. And as said above, gave it a quick wipe over with the Quick Detailer, made them even more shiny and water repellent

I find RainX utterly crap on my 500 tbh. I've used it on my 504, 406, the Subaru and my dad has used it on a few cars and it was fine with them but for some reason it just causes wiper judder on the 500.......... I've got some new wipers ready to go on when winter arrives properly so I might try it with new wipers but I reckon the result will be the same.

Re: Draigflag's ABARTH 500 (new thread!).

Been experimenting with the Movie feature on my camera. Really pleased with the results, mic picks up the sound well, touch screen focus pull is AMAZING, i just need a decent tripod for the "sweeping" shots and i will be able to make vids like a pro! Watch it and tell me what you think folks

60 sec expo, medium ISO and traced the car using the little red light on my phone! Got a few plans using this method, really like how they came out!
