    Default TLC for your Peugeot

    OK - have done some searching - seems there was a recent site crash and a heap of info was lost?

    So - what are your steps, inc recommended products etc, to looking after your Peugeot.

    Washing - how often, with what?
    Waxing - natural or polymers? What's best for non-metallic paints?
    Sealants?
    Paint protection?
    Interior? Best soft plastics cleaner / protector. Leather? What type of mats do you have? Cloth or rubber?
    Windows - rainex? Panoramic sunroof owners - do you rainex the roof?

    I used to wash mine with clothes washing liquid in a bucket of water and an old hand towel, and hose it off every few months. The brush from from a dustpan/brush set was good for the wheels and extra sticky stuff. Once I even polished it, but it got dirty again..

    Sometimes I'd get some spray and wipe onto the innards after a vaccum.
    I tried to drown my sorrows in alcohol, but the bastards learnt how to swim

    Wash the black Mi16 every six weeks, if it needs it or not, using turtle products.

    Being in Darwin you'll need UV protection on the paintwork and dash.

    I like my car very clean inside and out so I wash my car every weekend and it does not take very long. I use Turtle Ice Car wash which is great.

    I wax the car every 3~4 weeks with Meguiars Tech Wax 2.

    In the summer I apply a good coat of Polyglaze mixed with the Tech Wax. It seals the paintwork really well.

    A good coat of wax on the alloy wheels make it very easy to clean off brake dust and road grime without heavy brushing in the future....

    Inside I use Auto Glyms Interior Shampoo. You can just spray this lightly on a lint free cloth and it just gives that new look everywhere without the gross oily shine. You can also use this on the seats, upholstery and leather to clean. For Leather seat conditioning I use saddle grade wax.

    For tyres I use a light cloat of WD40 which cleans the tyre wall and apllies a very subtle sheen and not an oil slick.
