My Vauxhall Meriva

Postby CJ1985 » Fri Apr 19, 2013 8:16 pm

Hi all, this is my first post in here hope it's in the right place, copied most of this from my thread on DW.

Hopefully some time this year i'll go full or part-time when i can find a cheapish unit to start out with.

This is My own 2011 1.7CDTI Vauxhall Meriva in Black, detailed it 2 weeks ago.

Did a detail and coat of wax for now, not washed for about 3 weeks with the bad weather we had, normally cleaned once every weekend between over car's i get asked to do if i have time, hopefully do a full correction when the weather warms up or i find a unit.

here are some before pic's

what products did you use. Best to start part time if you can if you have another wage to live on until your up and running. Takes a while to build up a customer base

Nice work on the Meriva there Clint.

How far did you go with it, did it need polishing at all?

Hi mate thanks, only give it a clean detail and wax, as i need to order some cutting pads and other bits, before i can get it the way i want it.

I'll upload some pic's tomorrow, only got light on cam or phone till i get a better set-up, but you should still be able to see how bad it really is. my son was learning to ride his bike and went down both sides of the car :( not really bad hopefully should come out with better pads only got finishing ones at the min lol.

handy not having any competition, especially from the £5 car wash chaps. The key is educating people that these places just devalue your car

Yeah that's so true forgot there is a machine wash down the road with washes from £1.99 but that's all there is and they are not great, a friend's dad goes there all the time and his car's a mess now but he never ring's for me to do it and get it back looking good one day tho.

Not took pic's yet as car need's cleaning inside as my 1 year son left chocolate on seat and melted everywhere, the fun of kids. I'll update at weekend when i clean it all again.
