Tips !!

Post by f20118dmsport » Sun Jun 25, 2017 2:36 pm

Here's a tip for everyone......(some of you clever ones out there may have thought of this already ;-)

When you wash your car all morning, then dry and polish it and the car is looking stunning do you get p#ssed off when you come back to it in 10 minutes and underneath the wing mirror is dried water marks that have appeared from the water that has run out of the wing mirror casing.....
Well I have the answer !!
Once you have dryed your car and it is streak free, before you start to polish, press and hold look button on your remote control to fold your wing mirrors in and all the water will run out, leave it like this for a few minutes and then dry it under the mirror and then you carry on and polish your car with no worries.
