Exactly! Great job you did too, though with a car like that you're likely to spend more on product than what the car sells for! ;-)

Good work. :-)

Not had time to wash the car in 2 weeks and with the abysmal weather this weekend only managed to take it to the local jetwash to get the worst of it off. Have to say im amazed at what a 20 minute session with a hot foam lance and a rinse can do when the protection is on point. Before and afters below.

I always avoid using their foam at the jetwash as I assume it's going to take off whatever protection I have on my paint/wheels. Am I being over-cautious?

The weather yesterday was no good for outside detailing or mountain biking so I did some mountain bike detailing inside.
My 15 year old downhill bike had some 3M protection tape added after the frame had been powder coated under warranty. It went all the way back to California for this.
The tape has protected it fairly well but was looking tatty in places and so I removed all the worst bits.
I tried my DA polisher but it was too cumbersome so as I had bought a set of 3 polishing cones I decided to try them out with some Chemical Guys V32 and V36 polishes. It was quite different to my normal polishing as that is on two silver Volvos . Polishing black paint was a new experience, I could actually see the polish!
I had no intention of trying to remove all the scratches as I will be getting some new ones as soon as the weather improves.
The photos are before and after polishing.
I then decided to add a coat of Fusso before applying new 3M tape.
I am quite pleased with the results.

Yesterday I detailed both mine and my wife's cars putting on their winter coats; I had decided to use Meguiars Fast Finish on my car but AG HD Wax on the wife's, however, I used FF on both and I have to admit it looks great.

I also used Meguiars Wash Plus and I was impressed by it too; it definitely does what it says on the tin.

I suspect you are, i would never use the tfr or pre rinse from them but the hot shampoo lance wont do anything that mild apc wont do. Besides i usually use bsd after my 2bm wash and it had 2 coats of i2d ceramic wax about 2 months ago which i think im going to strip and replace with fusso coat shortly...

Attempted a winter prep on th XF.

Forza foam, Autofinesse shampoo, PB Black Hole followed by Megs Ultimate Liquid Wax.

Didn’t do the wheels as they are being refurbished next month.

Wife’s Mini to replicate tomorrow and then blast through the interiors of both.

None ��. I was meant to get the daily driver winter prepped on my last day of annual leave but got hit with a terrible cold. I've not been able to move all day.
