Hey guys tried what Rudra had suggested earlier for making the tyres look sparkling clean.

Guess what ? Simply awesome . Glycerine mixed with water and applied to the tyres.
Makes a good feast for the eyes.

Unfortunately it comes off after a wash and needs to be applied therafter. actually no big deal as it is so cheap and effortless in application.

To remove: Try any decent brand sratch and swirl remover.

For peace of mind: Such things, like scratches, dings and dents are unavoidable so have courage and peace of mind to accept the things you cannot change.
The last line is such sensible advise and yet so difficult to follow :-(

All these posts are with regard to [mostly] exteriors. I just had an interior detailing job done for Rs: 1300 at a place near the BDA complex in Indiranagar, Bangalore and its absolutely amazing. My interiors look like new.

Rudra, Jaggu,

Yes if you drive on the service road after BDA parallel to old Madras Rd its just after the water tanker guys - you take a left and its the first shop/garage. This is on the same road which meets up with CMH rd.[and I also know the rep that Padiwal has but this guy does a great job]

Hope this extremely confusing direction is clear to someone at least :-)

Cleaning the car with newspaper is not advisiable, it may at times leave swril marks on the paint surface.

For glass its the direct silicon and is hardly bound compared to paint on a metal.

Others many have some more ideas on this.
