What did you do to your CX3 today

Post by Stedmeister » Thu Mar 26, 2020 8:32 pm

Given the current restrictions on movement and travel (and perhaps a bit of cabin fever) I thought I would start this thread for a bit of fun.

Anyway, seeing as we’ve had such nice weather the past couple of days I took the opportunity of washing away all the winter grime from my other half’s CX3 and give both inside and out a good going over.

Nice! What products do you use?
I do like the trims on the underside of the doors & front spoiler.

HS. Cleaned with Simoniz wash and Carnauba wax. Clayed with Farecla G3 mitt to get all the little tar spots and other surfactants off and then finished with Mer polish.

The black plastic trims were given a light coating of tyre wall black. Pleased with the result, just wish we could give it a run before the weather changes and dirties it again so today just did what AndyRen did!

Rotated the wheels as recommended. I think you are supposed to do this around 6K miles- I have done 8K. Just realised I've forgot to reset the warning on the computer :roll:

Happy to pass this little tip on. Using a cloth squirted with WD40 wipe wheel arches, front and rear bumper plastic plus the lower external plastic at base of all 4 doors. Lovely shine.
I've also on occasion WD40 wiped the tyres to get that "wet" look-although careful to avoid over doing it.
Don't half make a difference!

Nice weather and plenty of spare time available. So I spent most of Sunday cleaning the car. Wash, clay bar (removes all old polish, tar, staining etc), rinse, wax, black trim dressed.
Knackered, but it does look nice and shiny. :D :D

Cleaning out the garage I found an old product called Wonder Wax that I've had for years. Decided to try the two part system & very pleased with the result.
