Giving the car a deep clean

I washed the car and gave the black plastic trims a coating of UV protection (303 spray) to stop them going white yesterday. Today, I spent the afternoon cleaning off any salt and road grime from the under wheel arches. Not sure many people would go this far, but I do like to keep my car looking good.

I used to get underneath and wash the exhaust system, but don't have to do that now.

Looks like it has never been driven... [Big grin.png]

Autoglym Instant Tyre Dressing m8 https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B ... UTF8&psc=1

And for plastic trim I use 303 Marine Aerospace Protectant UV protection https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B ... UTF8&psc=1 It can also be used on tyres. Safe on vinyl, gel-coat, fiberglass, carbon fibre, synthetic/natural rubber, plastic and finished leather.
