Hi All,

I noticed there was a few inquiries over products, processes and general questions about cleaning and caring for your Jaguar.
So i thought i would be a good opportunity to open a thread for Care Care and Detailing for all to ask any questions or queries for us to respond to.

just a little info on myself.
Im a Fulltime Professional Detailer, Multi Approved in the UK (Swindon) at RedGuard AutoSpa

im always happy to help. any questions just fire away

Alloys wheels do bring a few issues to light. The old fashioned steel wheels seems never to get "kerbed" and the hub caps were easy to clean [and easy to steal].

My wheels have been kerbed by a previous owner and need a refurbishment, and being a pensioner, I need to count the pennies somewhat. There is a local company in Lichfield with a good reputation, and hopefully in the summer I will have all 5 done  --  I have a matching "proper" factory issued spare as specified by the first owner.

A lot depends on what the MOT throws up in June.

Peter.
