This is what I'm doing...

Snow foam
Give it a full wash using the 2BM
Polish
Wax

Drive down...

Quick wash to get any light muck off
Then go crazy with quick detailer to bring the shine back from the wax :thumbs:

You can add more layers of wax or sealant when you get there but my car is waxed and polished regularly anyway so quick detailer will be enough. I'm gonna ask the hotel if they'll fill my bucket for me :lol:

Probably paid a fortune for the Megs stuff at Halfords, depends what you want to achieve, i would have

Snowed
De Contaminated with de tar
Cleaned Wheels with Billberry Wheel Cleaner (or what ever preference)
2BM - (with grit guards)
Clayed
Snowed Again
Polish (or deduce if you have any swirls and take appropriate action)
Seal
Wax
Plastics and Tires

IMO
