So a few weeks back, we traded in our Kuga for a newer model.

Used the car for a week, then gave it's final wash and spritz






So, for it's last week, I kept it clean as best I could, with QD and last Saturday morning we picked up our 'new' car.  I had asked the dealer to clean the interior but to leave the paintwork alone; which they did.

We got the car home and started cleaning the car, our way.  Whilst I got everything set-up, the other half gave the interior a lift with Chemical Guys Leather Cleaner, Conditioner & Leather Scent





Wheels were cleaned using Bilberry & Auto Finesse's Iron Out

Before:-






During:-







After:-











Washed with Dodo Juice Sour Power Shampoo, rinsed again, dried off and spritzed with Carnauba Arts™ Red Opal. Tyres treated with Gtechniq's T2 Tyre Dressing

So, a couple of weekends back, I gave the Kuga a bit more T.L.C.



Dried off and applied Mitchell & King's Homme Metallic wax 



with a microfibre applicator and a spritz of Mitchell & King's QD


Left the wax to cure for approx. 30 - 45 minutes, applied Mitchell & King's Tyre dressing and finally removed the wax with a Monster Microfibre "The Great White Buffing" Towel and a spritz of QD.

Some afters

Getting ready for the colder days and longer nights

As normal, wheels cleaned first, then onto the normal pre-rinse, snow foam, wash, rinse and dry.

Applied M&K Pure, a panel at a time, allowed to haze, then wiped off.
   


Followed immediately by the Equinox September wax, again applied a panel at a time.



Completed the whole car and then removed with a plush microfibre and M&K QD.

Applied M&K Clear and Vision to the glass.


M&K Tyre, to the tyres


Leaving the Kuga looking like
