I gave the interior a much required vacuum and clean up, along with a nice exhaust polish to compliment the exterior wash/detail i did on my Focus ST250 yesterday, must say that i love the way the Tangerine Scream looks when it clean and sunny out!

I really seem to struggle with the lowest part of the car, so decided to get it up on ramps to do the front and rear bumper.
While I was waiting for the Fusso to haze over on the rear bumper, I thought I may as well polish the exhaust.

Up very early and a quick (By the time i normally spend on my own cars) go over on the wifes and middle son's cars. Neither of whom have ever cleaned their own since owning them ! Thats gets left to good old Dad.....

The boy's 16 year old Corsa we bought him earlier this year as a first car - got a going over under the hood.....mainly using CarPro PERL on the Black bits, inside got a hoover and the plastics treated with the same; and had a wash, dry and QD on the outside using Sonax BSD. Tyres were dressed with Meguiar's Endurance Tyre gel and the external trim got a coat of Autofinesse Revive:










Now the wifes Punto was filthy. And i mean filthy ! So a pre-wash was carried out with a Citrus based product using a pump sprayer, wheels were pre-treated with Bilberry, car was rinsed, and then washed using 2BM with Meguiars Ultimate Wash & Wax, dried and then again protected with some BSD QD spray.

***This car had a coat of Bilt-Hammer DSW about 6 (?)months ago and always gets a topping of BSD when its washed. And the last wash was 6 weeks+ ago easily. So when washed and dried i was amazed to see the depth of shine and beading that happened after so much time. This pic was before today's coating of BSD was applied. Incredible stuff to last so well. Todays QD's pretty much make waxing redundant - unless you just love doing it !!



As an aside - i've love CarPro PERL. But have had much more success using internally than externally. So today for an experiment i used APC on the tyres, then applied CarPro PERL to the totally clean rubber - and am going to now see how long it lasts. Rain looks like its building ....so we'll soon know

How did you clean the dirt/dust before waxing the next day? I often think about splitting some of my bigger jobs over 2 days. CBA doing a full wash n dry again before continuing.

I have a cover which I use in between detailing or if I’ve prepared the car for a weekend away or something...I then give it a going over with a qd to get any dust off and start where I left off..it works for me so I’m happy!
