    Had the old girl valeted today
    Exterior
    Spray wheels with a non acidic wheel cleaner & brightener then agitate & rinse.
    Spray bottom third of bodywork with a citrus degreaser to remove loose grit, grime & fly splatters.
    Spray a degreaser on all door, boot shuts & petrol cap then agitate & rinse.
    Snow foam bodywork as a pre wash to remove stubborn grit & grime before we think of hand washing.
    Remove all tar and glue deposits.
    Only when exterior bodywork is clear of all tar, grit & grime we hand wash with a ph balanced shampoo & super soft wash mitts using the two bucket system with grit guards.
    Dry bodywork & shuts with super plush drying towels.
    Bodywork hand polished with a 3 in 1 cleanser, polish & sealant.
    Clean all exterior chrome & front grill.
    Dress exterior plastic trims.
    Dress tyres & wheel arches.
    Tail pipes polished.
    Interior
    Interior & exterior mirrors & windows cleaned & polished.
    Ashtrays cleaned.
    Extensive hovering of seat, mats & boot.
    Deep clean including shampoo & extraction of all carpets, mats & upholstery & boot.
    All door panels cleaned & treated.
    If interior is leather it is clean & treated.
    Deodorise carpets & upholstery.
    Hoover headlining.
    Dashboard & centre console cleaned & treated with non silicone.
    Vinyl & sun visors cleaned & treated.
    All air vents & buttons cleaned & treated.
    Foot pedals cleaned.
    At the end of the valet the vehicle is sprayed & buffed for a deep glossy shine with a sealant for extra protection.

    Thank you to the legend that is Phil Miller For fitting the front fogs and enabling them as DRL's. Sorry Torquays weather was rubbish.
    They are DRL as soon as the engine runs in daylight, when night time you need to pull the switch
