Cool Yo Detailing World!

Yo everyone,

I have been reading the forums for some time now and finally decided it was time to get signed up.

I caught the detailing bug when I very first owned a car at the age of 18, 25 now, so 7 years of researching detailing products and techniques and putting them to the test. Plus many many hours of Youtube videos. Have tried a whole range of products from different manufacturers so hopefully I can provide some insight and advice for the beginners on here. I have been pretty much consumed by the detailing bug. My Mrs still can't understand why I love the rain so much

A couple of weeks ago I bought myself a new car and decided it was time to buy myself my first machine polisher. Grabbed a DAS6 Pro, some CG Hexlogic pads and a stash of Menzerna Polishes. I can't believe it has taken me so long to get into the machine polishing game, but I don't regret the wait. All the research I have done has given me the confidence and also highlighted the extra special care required to achieve top results.

I'm a Honda driver, more specifically Type R's. My last car was a 2008 Type R (FN2) in Milano Red. I've just upgraded to its bigger brother the Type R (FK2) only a year old (2016) reg in Metallic Sporty Blue.

So yeah.. looking forward to leeching from the goldmine of knowledge on here and also giving a bit back and helping out others where I can.

I'll get some pictures of the new motor up soon. I machine polished the hood last weekend and sealed with some menzerna power lock. It's absolutely gleaming. She'll be in for some more lovin this weekend.

Catch you around,
Chris

I'll upload more pics when I get the chance but here's a teaser during her first full wash last Sunday. Image is as is, with no filters or effects applied!
