For some very good guides take a look at this site.
Hi M8
Yes your quite right and I stand corrected.
It should be done first,however ,saying that I was in a hurry when I washed my car last week and did the alloys last because it was threatening to rain and I was more interested in shifting the bird poo off it than clean alloys which I could do any time.
It didn't rain so they got done last .
I will say though that the trick with the tar spot remover and then hose off works a treat .
I took the car out a half hour after they were done and there were no streaks or throw back from them on the car at all!!

BTW M8 excellent link I've put it in my favourites TVM

Where ever you go There you are!!!
