With that discussed, it was time to crack on. First off was getting the car spick and span ready for waxing. I dived into the tar first, drowning it in ValetPRO Citrus Tar & Glue Remover to break it down. This was applied wherever it sat on the bodywork, and copiously on the wheels.
Now the car was dry, the three remaining tasks were to repair or hide the scratch, get the wheels off for a full clean and wax, and get the car coated in a nice, protective cocoon of Swissvax Crystal Rock wax. I would repair the scratch first, as I expected the repair to include sanding and machine polishing, and did not want to get residue in a wax layer,
Before I dived into the repair, I quickly checked for and cleaned out any remaining contaminants in the door shuts, jambs and other areas where it likes to hide out that may have been hard to shift or see when outside.
Okay, three: I looked like a gimp.
