After last weekends trip to Devon felt Betty needed a good rub down.
Being the worst colour for dirt after 5 separate processes got it looking stunning again,
1.jet wash to remove general dirt
2. Polar wash to loosen dirt
3. Jet wash to remove polar wash
4. Magma spray on wheels and lower half this is meant to remove ingrained brake and iron dust. (YouTube has a lot to answer for)
5. Another jet wash
6. Shampoo wash ph neutral
7. Jet wash
8. Dry with micro towels
9. As the paintwork is in good shape went for the ceramic turtle wax Spray coating and polish, they suggest 2 coatings of this 24 hrs apart. So that’s 10 stages not 5.
Wounded if everyone with a black van goes through this?

Not my choice either, but with a very limited secondhand market you have to accept compromises
I’m like karate kid, Wax on wax off
