the spring detail

Hey guys and gals, I was wondering what everybody has planned for their spring detail, apart from the obvious decon. Has anybody got some new to them products they plan to use? Or an old and trusty combo that you can't let go of? I bought carpro reflect to give a little pick me up to the girls paint but also have sonax perfect finish, and have a load of choices for wax, most probably will use wax planet SOD. Come on everyone let's see some ideas!

I don't really do a spring / autumn detail as I rarely get to dedicate a whole day (or longer!) to detailing jobs. However some of the things I've got planned for when the weather is better and the evening are lighter include:

- Machine polishing using the Glare system, as well as trying some new pads with the Scholl S20 Black I've got in the bag
- Treating trim to a coat of Carpro DLUX
- Polishing front and rear light clusters and treating with DLUX as well
- Getting underneath the car to apply some Dynax S50 and Dynax UB to the suspension and chassis (including behind all the arch liners )
- LSP-wise am looking forward to trying out my Black Friday pot of Wowos Contact 121

And that's just the family bus - I have a bit of a session planned on my brother's 2005 E61 550i which is in need of some TLC

Awesome stuff, I tried s20 on my friends car, I'm sure it was down to my technique but it was so dusty. I'm hoping I get on better with my other 2 polishes. I just bought a bottle of CC trim coating, I didn't think about putting it on my lights, may do now! I wish I had somewhere I could jack my car up etc, my drive is on a hill and stones. Cheers for your feedback!

At a guess dusting means you were using too much product...

Does this also apply to Menzerna products, especially their coarse compound
