I know that's not recommended but morbid curiosity made me do it, and in testing today (driving in the rain) it seems to outperform rainX, so I hope its ok in bright weather too.

Carried on and Fusso'd the bonnet and roof, just because there was some on the pad.

Great beading!

Im not sure it's detailing in the truest sense of the phrase but I did this today (with more than a little help from my friend)

Foamed
Cleaned Wheels
Shampooed
Iron Tar Remover
Rinsed
Clay Barred
DA'd roof bonnet and one side........then it rained!!!!
Sealed with Aqua wax for the time being, it looks like a dry afternoon tomorrow so hoping to DA the other side, Seal and wax!

This was my first experience with fallout remover and clay barring, wow I was so surprised with what there was in the paint, the car is 14 years old now and I imagine this is the first time either have been done. All was going so well until it rained, what would guys do to temporarily seal the paint once it started to rain? AG Aqua wax was the only product I had that waxes on wet paint but as it was so wet I couldn't buff it. If all goes to plan tomorrow I'll add a couple of pics!

Have a good weekend everyone!

What detailing did you do today??

Apart from one heavy shower just I was about to start claying it stayed dry all day. Full decon, polish and wax on the focus




Edit: Couple more pics added.

I used CarPro’a clay cloth and lube for the first time and I’m seriously impressed with them. Claying was so easy.

Just a wash and dry but even by that time it was almost dark. Makes for a moody shot though

Glad to hear the CarPro clay cloth is good. I have one that I've not used yet, so good to hear that it's a decent cloth!

Light correction today on my BMW F30 in black sapphire metallic.

Coated with Crystal Serum Light.

Can C2v3 be applied in multiple coats without waiting X amount of time in between?
