    Smile Vauxhall Zafira VXR Enhancement Detail

    Hi everyone its a while since I've posted up a detail as there has been a few developements which have completely thrown both Andrew and I!

    For the next 9 months or so I'm unable to do any machine polishing work as we are expecting the pitter patter of tiny feet at the beginning of January 2013. As we have also had to lose a staff member this has meant that I am spending more time doing administration and processing orders, therefore I have taken the decision to take on a resident detailer.

    Dan is a well know detailer around the North East and somebody that I would trust to work on my own car so I have full faith in his abilities.

    So the first vehicle we had in for Dan was Karl's Vauxhall Zafira which was in need of a Enhancement and protection as he is in the forces and working a way for a few months and no longer has a garage to store the car in.

    So this is what landed with us a couple of saturday's ago:







    If Carlsburg make snowfoam this would be itAvalanche Snow Foam - soon to be stocked by Juicy!









    Rinsed off...




    The car wash then washed using the 2 bucket method, rinsed, decontaminated, washed again, rinsed and then dried using Chemical Guys Wooly Mammoth Drying Towel and the blower to get rid of all the annoying drips



    The vehicle was then taken inside our detailing bay and prepared for a one stage machine polish..using Menz 203; a Yellow 3M pad and rotary














    Mirror's needed a good polish





    Len's needed correcting as well





    Working on the rear of the car including vinyl strip polished







    Nice couple of coats of Zaino Z2, Z6 and Wet Glaze 2.0



    Exhaust tips polished up






    Windows all cleaned and one of our new Juicy stickers added

    Finally we took the Zaffy outside but unfortunately the weather wasn't playing ball and the dark clouds were looming

    Thanks for taking the time to have a read through

    Nice work, looks like you've made a good choice. That snow foam looks very fluffy indeed.

    Looking good Jen, great work by Dan, a real asset to your business! Congratulations on your forthcoming arrival. Is their a minimum age you can start kids at Detailing bootcamp?

    As an aside I am looking for new snow foam soon. How is the cleaning power of this one? I find VP pH Neutral is OK but doesn't really shift much dirt. Also any plans to stock Chemical Guys Gallon bottles?

    My youngest is in training!

    The Avalanche definitely shifts the muck, did a little video on it so I'll try and get it loaded up.

    Which gallons of CG are you interested in?

    Your looking at £25.50 plus £6.95 postage via parcel force 24, so the total is £32.45

    Awesome work Jen! Just on a side note, my other half's dad has a JCB pressure washer, it has a "detergent bottle" on a tube attached to the pump inside the machine but that doesn't snow foam, it just comes out as watery bubbles a bit like that stuff we had as kids.. Admittedly I was just using normal shampoo, do I need specific snow foam solution or is it the system? If so, can you supply inline snow foam attachments for these machines?
    Sorry for the hijack!!

    You'll find that the majority of pressure washers on the Market have some kind of soap dispenser, however as you have experienced it comes out rather diluted and thin.

    Ideally you need a foam lance and specific snow foam (this attaches to the lance end) which has a different chemical make up to shampoo, thus develops thicker foam. The best thing to do as I'm not familiar with your washer is if you can email me a few pictures from different angles of the female end of the lance. Once I have this I can confirm the fitment you require....

    When are you looking to stock the Avalanche Snow Foam? It looks great, I've tried lots of different makes of foam and none come close to being that thick and clingy.
