What detailing did you do today??

BH Autofoam via pump sprayer, snowfoam with PM TFR, 2BM wash and then finished with Orchard Autocare Perfection.

Tyres dressed with Gyeon Tire.

Vacuum of the inside, cleaned the rubber mats and then dressed with Magic Glaze multi purpose dressing.

The scents from Perfection and multi purpose dressing are crazy good

From this...







To this...

managed to get a wash in as the car was looking grimey and sorted the door seals for winter with gummipfledge

before

















importance of 2 buckets at this time of the year even after 2 stages of pre wash



after

















.... I then decided to give my football gloves a clean up as the pitches are minging this time of the year now and are getting caked up after each match

nothing a bit of APC and a stiff brush cant sort though

Car was filthy so it was getting washed today whatever the weather!




..got my other apprentice on the case with the wheels

Of course it started snowing as I was washing it and really started coming down as I was packing up


Still, Gyeon Bathe+ was doing a great job of sheeting the water off:

Afterwards I rolled it into the garage to hook up to the CTEK, and also thaw out before the apparent -7C we're getting tonight...

Someone asked this exact question a little further along in the thread, and I'm pretty sure he did answer it....

Nice sunny day today so thought I'd give the car a wash!

Sprayed some Valet pro ph neutral pre wash beforehand and let it settle for 10 mins whilst i cleaned all the door and boot sills.

This was then rinsed using my k2 pressure washer and then bodywork snowfoamed using krystal kleen snowfoam. Whilst settling i cleaned the wheels using bathe+ shampoo and wheel woolies

Car was then rinsed and 2bm wash using bathe+ as i consider this the best shampoo for ceramic coated cars. Rinsed and dried using a plush mf towel

Glass was then cleaned using Gyeon glass and wheels dried using a mf cloth.

I then gave it a quick detail using carpro ech20 mixed with water and carpro reload to keep the coating topped up. Used a nice plush Korean mf towel for this.

Car looking very clean and shiny!

All done in about 2 hours!
