Enjoy driving again after a wash

Post by welsh_ben on Sat 26 Sep 2009, 21:52

well car was stinkin (not that you can tell with the colour anyway) but road works bout bout 2days on my street where they were resurfacing it so bout a month later the roads have finally calmed down with dust and loose gravel flygin everywhere all the time,so decided to give it a wash cause i new it was stinking plus its had 3new tyres aswell(had a new one bout 1month ago also)

People who wash their car with only 1 bucket,use 2 this is what it looks like,all that crap and black in my 2nd bucket is what your washing back onto your car if you just use 1 bucket



Dirt 1


Dirt 2


Dirt 3


Dirt 4


Clean 1


Clean 2


Clean 3


Clean 4


Clean 5


Clean 6



Need to spend some more time on it and buy some proper polish and waxing stuff and also need to get an alloy brush to get in by the nuts/bolts

Also think i need to get a 4" tail pipe on there cause the 3" still looks a bit lost


comments good or bad

Seen as your car doesnt see much love in the polishing department i'd personally cut the paint back with something more corse and get rid of all the built in grime, then something finer, then a next thick coat of wax Smile

Are they hard to come by, cause Google or eBay don't throw up much!

I like them a lot

if you can get hold of them more than likely youll need to buy 4 tyres for them cause the tyres are too big for the 306, people commonly look for 206 gti 180 alloys which look similar to these,some people may even list thiers as them but cud be in fact 307s
