i feel your pain mate, i work full time and also have a 2 1/2 year old boy.

i am looking to do a machine cleanser on my car in the coming weeks but just cannot think how the heck i am going to fit it in.

last night after i picked him up from nursery and took him down the park etc i got home and managed to get 1 door shut cleaned.......

yeah 1 single door shut....

I should have taken up this detailing lark when i was young free and single.

problem is when i was young free and single i was driving a beat up nova.

Blimey gibbo555, an hour and a half to do a whole van?? Did your DA actually touch the bodywork or did you just waft it in its general direction??

....or did you use the new DAS Usain Bolt Pro vMach 2 machine?

Can you come round and do my gf's, daughters and neighbours cars between 4 and 6 on Saturday?

Lol it’s a lovely polish to use, plus you can basically do a good few sections before having to wipe off to let it haze... here’s the results ...

It's those new 22 inch pads you've been using chum...

Lol

Great stuff. I'm going to be giving my white 3 series a thorough clean, so might just give this a go.

Do yourself a little 50:50 - you might be surprised at the difference in colour!

They are some job the big pads lol.

I don't usually use the likes of these polishes, usually correction work then wipe down and coat. But I love the job it does, in fairness this van has been looked after by only me since new so it was in good shape to begin with.

Just prepped gf's car - wash, decon and clay, just opened by cleanser polish and it started to rain!

Anyway, I got to the point of opening the bottle and I noticed the cleanser polish is very runny, how do you apply pea drops into a pad which will just absorb into the pad like water?

I could add a trigger head and spray onto panel then apply the DA?

I spray it onto the pad. Works well.

It does take time, in that respect it is not something that everyone has, in reality it is only cleaning the paint plus the time taken to correct the whole car far more intensive. You can do it in small sections a panel at a time the notion of doing it all in one go is unrealistic in some family situations.
