    Cool A3 annual serious detail

    Hi all,

    Maybe this is just something I do, but each year I normally take holiday and spend time detailing the car.

    This is not to say that I wont wash the car every week or so and top up the protection on the paint.

    Attached below are pictures from my 2 days of madness during my holiday... ha





































































    Enjoy!

    Are we supposed to guess what products you used / how you went about this lol. I can only assume you polished it if you had the tape on? Id never polish a car outside personally.

    Haha this is the process I followed and products that used. It was too late last night to do the write up.

    Decontaminated with snow foam auto finesse averlanche.

    Two bucket wash with meguiars shampoo plus

    Wheels cleaned with meguiars wheel brightener and ez detail brush

    Car sprayed down and wiped down with tardex and then treated with iron x

    Car was then clayed down using meguiars clay bar and auto finesse glide

    Car washed again and patted dry.

    Machine polished with a da using 3m extra fine plus and ultrafina.

    Paint sealed using blackfire paint sealant and blackfire midnight sun paste wax.

    Wheels sealed with poorboys wheel sealant.

    Rubber seals, grills and wheels finished with 303 protectant.

    Exhaust cleaned with autosol and car finished off with blackfire wet diamond polymer spray.

    Useing some products in direct sunlight can actually damage paintwork especially some waxes always read product before use.

    Excellent job there mate it looks great! This could be a complete noob question but then again I am still quite new to all this, why do you tape the bump strips along your door? Don't you want to polish/wax those as well?
