Ive always thought i was quite good at this detailing lark, That was until i decided that my s3 was over due a real good clean, I jetted off most of the loose dirt with a jet was and then washed it using the 2 bucket method with a white megs wash mit and dodo super natural shampoo, I then rinsed with a hose and dried the car down with an autoglym leather. Then i used dodo juice clay and lube to remove the dirty from the paint... i did this one panel at a time and used 4 bits of clay by the time i had done the whole car, The car was then pulled inside my unit to get on with the polishing work but when i set up the halogen lamps my life was the paint in a right old state! swirls , scratchs... you name it, it was there ! So i called upon a good mate of mine to come and try and correct the problems... After many hours and just as many products and buffing heads the paint was looking good again, Happy days So we then added 2 coats of Autoglym SRP and 1 Coat of HDW ( time was marching on ) The problem is im now afraid to clean the car! have i been doing something basicaly wrong all this time and will i end up messing the paint up again? Any help with highlighting what im doing wrong would be great !
