Colleague from nightshift dropped off his car at 10am today.
Always nice to have a new car to clean. Okay not new as in the car being new. It’s a 61 plate so a late 2011, VW Golf TDi, but a new to me car to clean.
The car had brake dust baked in on the wheels (apparently for three years), Took some shifting.
Traffic film but no real dirt.
Some baked in bird bombs.
Milk stain on the passenger seat.
Post first washes (degreased, rinsed, washed, rinsed, tar removed) a liberal amount of fallout remover was used. Car bleeding heavily.
Rinsed off. Now to tackle to bird bomb ‘ghosts’, micro scratching and hand marks. Children have natural oils in their hands which dry up as they get older but can also be caused by moisturiser in hand creams.
Easily removed with a good polish (I’ve found very few things will remove it sufficiently that it doesn’t come back).
Rewashed with Gyeon Q2M snow foam (shampoo and sealant in one), pressure washed to activate.
Dried with Gyeon Cure.
Dressed all the little bits of textured plastic.
Unfortunately the camera doesn’t pick up the gloss.
Still a little mark at the rear of the passenger seat.
I didn’t pick on it at first but then I noticed it.
Do you see it?
Yep, a 2.0TDi VW Golf Mk6 automatic. An automatic Golf.
I’ve never come across a Golf or even a similar small car with an automatic gearbox.
Not a bad three and a half hours.
