I'm worried that I may have OCD.......... :screwy:


Lots more not shown too, like the pressure washer, Gilmour foam gun, more cloths, wash mitts, drying towels, applicator pads, 2 buckets and trats to carry it all in!

Haven't used half of it either!

Next on my list is a rotary polisher, maybe a Megs G220 and some 303 aerospace protectant if I play my cards right! :D

I'll get my coat.............. or should that be anorak!?

Hi aevans, God no! I hide it all from the wife in a cupboard under the stairs which she will not go into because of spiders!

Is it all shadow-boarded so you know when you've not put it all back correctly, or something's missing?

Mine normally looks like this:


Speed dirt is what I call it.
We have a Z guy that cleans his car mid-run and carries a hefty supply of cleaning products for the car at all times...

I have to admit to doing a 6 month clean on the 1er as well......

Pre-soaked
Washed Car with Autoglym Wash
Dried with Zymol Towel
Megs Step 1 and 2
Zymol BMW Canubra Wax
Autoglym Fast Glass to all windows

Took all 4 wheels off cleaned wheel arches applied new coat laquer on callipers and hubs.

Sprayed Autoglym tyre shine on wheel arch liners and tyres.

Autoglym Wheel protectant on all 4 alloys inside and out.

Inside was vacumed, Cliptone Liquid Leather applied to seats and steering wheel, Megs NXT Tech Protectant applied to interior surfaces and Fast glass polish on all interior windows.

So Timinal cannot feel quite as sad and my other half told me I was obssesed with cleaning the car :rtfm:
