    Detailed 1996 Volvo 960, New Member from Sweden

    Hello!

    First post here on the forum for me! So I hope to post the thread right now!

    Please understand that my English might not be quite right, but I'm from Sweden in northern Europe, so I do my best

    Thought I should show some pictures of my Volvo 960 that I've polished and waxed with Meguiars products!

    To begin with, I washed the car with degreasing and then Meguiars Soft Wash Gel, given the climate which we have here in Sweden with a lot of salt on the roads in the winter so it was a must!

    the paint was already in quite good shape, so I went directly to step two of the Deep Crystal Series, I used a machine with two plates that I have used several times before with good results!

    After that I used the step 3, the wonderful Carnuba wax! I was really pleasantly surprised by the lovely dark look I got, and a bright and smooth surface!

    For plastic surfaces of the car I used the Gold Class Trim Detailer, really a wonderful medium to remove traces of old wax!

    For the tires was the idea of using the Endurance High Gloss, but it was unfortunately out of stock at my dealer for the moment. So I used tire shine from a different manufacturer, but has now purchased from Meguiars!

    To preserve the fine luster and the surface so I use after every wash Meguiars NXT Generation Spray Wax with a fine microfiber towel.

    Can say that I am very satisfied with the products and the hospitality that I receive from my dealer here in Gothenburg! What I understand so it's a bit of Meguiars thing to give advice and not just sell a product that many others do!

    Some information about the car and then a few pictures, a Volvo 960 from 1995, first owner was a manager at Volvo's truck plant in Dublin VA. When he moved back to Sweden so the car came with, and it is in very good condition, only sad thing is the seats in the car which took the beating from the sun! But I have used Gold Class Rich Leather and it's getting better!











    Hope you enjoyed it! Looking forward to learn more about car care here on Meguiars Online!

    Best regards Björn
