so heres todays work, first minor detail of the year, hoping to do a major correction in a couple of months time for the shows etc
so i started by using a high pressure was at my local garage, which is round the corner, then straight back onto the drive.
washed and rinsed:
products il be using:
then coated the lower parts of the car and the wheels with auto finesse citrus power:
the wheels were my main focus point today, lots of accumulated brake dust, hard to clean, and tire shine had made the edges quite dull
power washing the citrus power off after going around the car:
here is the marks around the edges of the rim:
so i applied autosmart tardis to all four wheels, well coated, and wiped them down:
this got rid of the marks, and they began to look fairly clean
next was to treat the wheels to my new product, wolfs decon gel:
V impressed with this product!! they came up excellent
so after power washing the wheels down and they were complete i started on the body
badges and door shuts treated to citrus power and a brush:
2 bucket method
here is what was collected in the dirty bucket:
now the car was actually very dirty, hard to tell on a dark blue car really until you're up close, but the above pic shows how well the citrus power works to get rid of the stuck on dirt.
a throough rinse after hand washing:
not much protection, if any.
dried with a microfibre
one of MANY marks:
so now on to my next new product:
auto finesse rejuvinate. i wanted something quick and easy until i do my full correction. this fits the bill
results are good, leaves a clean shine, and helps mask some blemishes:
next onto windows. autoglym glass polish, i like this stuff:
^seal of approval^
now to go over the whole car with megs quick detailer:
as ive said, some proper protection will go on in my big detail.
door shuts clean:
and the last step, tire shine. megs endurance tire gel spray, round the car twice for extra gloss
i also dress my splitter with this
now off to a meet at krispy kremes, hopefully it will look respectable amongst the rest.
