    I picked this up on Bank Holiday Monday last week and I've been waiting patiently for weekend to give it a going over.

    2012 Volvo C30 2.0L R-Design Lux in Cosmic White metallic.

    The car was rinsed down, snowfoamed, .rinsed off again & washed (2 bucket method).

    The car was Rinsed off again and I left it wet while using a clay bar and Autoglym quick detailer to clay the entire body.

    Clay after just going over the bonnet...

    And the drivers side door:

    Passenger side rear quarter:

    The rest wasn't as dirty and the clay picked up minimal deposits.

    Once done, car was rinsed off again, dried & then I used some Autoglym Intense Tar remover on some stubborn tar spots.

    Once prepped, i polished the car using Autoglym SRP & waxed it using Autoglym HD Wax.
    Tyres were dressed using Maguires endurance gel & glass was cleaned using Maguires fast glass.....leaving me with this......

    not a bad finish you have there :)

    next time though try T&G remover before clay bar it'll make your life a lot easier as it'll soften/remove most of the tar for you (could also give a little agitation with a mf cloth) :thumbup:
