Taught a friend who's recently got a new car the importance of keeping it clean, and how to do so properly. His techniques need a bit of fine tuning but he's about there, proud little apprentice

Not today but the other day I finally got round to making a start on the rex, after deciding it was high time I took a day off work.

After a full decon wash with CarChem 1900:1, a wipe of Tardis and a spritz of HDD Ferrus Ferric before being clayed and then a final rinse and dry ( Using SC Drying aid )...it was time to try and revive the paint work...

I used AngelWax Ressurection on a Scholl White spider pad, followed by CarPro Essence on a gloss pad and topped it with AngelWax Desirable.





After a good few hours work....













Im fairly happy with the results and work permitting I'll crack on with some more next weekend.

This morning I gave my new Rupes Duetto a run out and thought what better test than to polish the bonnet off my 14 year old work horse van. Started off with m105 on a green rupes pad then finished with m205 on a white hex logic pad. Turned out really well!

Didn’t get a before of the bonnet, but here’s a view from the side of the van to give an idea of the state it was in.


And here’s the finished article.

Weekend spent detailing both cars. Usual 2bm and BH auto foam.

Spent extra time on the family estate which needed a layer of protection as the old one was on it's way out.
I first used Poorboys blackhole which is a fantastic glaze and followed it with Nattys blacj paste wax which is such a nice product to use.

Car left gleaming and done for another month!

As a newbee I had my first shot with some of the gear I’ve recently bought

So wet car
Used snow foam
Gave wheels a bit of a scrub while waiting
Rinsed foam off
Applied chemical guys bug tar remover on some very hard baked bug bodies
Rinsed
Then autoglym shampoo and dry
Used neat bug remover finally removed
Cleaned windows inside and out with angelwax vision

Feels like a good start took me longer than expected but its all new

Snow foam was fun

Chuffed

GF’s parents on holiday thought I’d give them a nice surprise for when they return Friday. Gave there 2015 Golf R Line some TLC it badly needed.

Magma on the wheels
Foamed with BHAF
Washed with BHAW
Sonax BSD as drying aid
Race Glaze Nano Wheel Sealant
AG Vinyl and Rubber care
Tyres dressed with Gtechniq T2
Windows in and out with Meguiars Glass Cleaner

Interior shocked me, was in a bad way don’t think it’s ever been hoovered or wiped down.

Items removed
Hoovered
Stains on fabric seats with Surfex APC
same as above with floormats
Damp microfiber all plastics
Final wipe with Auto Finesse Spritz
Nice spray of AG Golden Sunset

Hope it stays gleaming as much as possible until Friday so they can see the transformation and my efforts. Will definitely be having words about the interior lol.
