The Red Devil

This was my first proper attempt at some detailing or valeting – whatever you want to call it!

Had the day off work today so I went to Halfords and bought a few items for cleaning the car. Still need quite a few more items so the car will look better once I have these too. Decided that I am going to treat myself to some expensive wax ie ***** (due to VXRMarc and his detailing of the red Astra VX-which was superb!) and some Supa Snow Foam.

Some before shots.

Here is an account of my routine. Yesterday I treated my leather seats with some Wilko’s leather wipes and cleaned the mats using a wire brush as they were not too bad. Used household Pledge to clean the dashboard. I’ve always used this on my dash and does a good job and smells good too. (Today I bought some ***** leather cleaner so I will use that next time).

Firstly I power washed the car down to loosen the dirt and grime etc. Then using the two bucket system I washed the car down using ***** autowash. (No sheepskin mitts yet so had to make do with some super soft wash cloths which I ensured were thoroughly rinsed out and free from grit in between rinses).

This was then rinsed off with the power washer and dried with a chamois leather and final buff with a microfibre cloth.

Picture of a reflection after shampooing only

Meanwhile I sprayed the alloy wheels with Simoniz alloy wheel cleaner and left it for 2 minutes before pressure washing off.

Windows were cleaned using Maguiars NXT. The first time I have used this and found it to remove flies and tree sap with ease.

Looked at the Maguiars clay pack when I was Halfords but was not sure if I could use it?

Question –can I clay the car when it has been treated with Diamondbrite?

Next I waxed the car using some Turtle wax Ultra shine. I bought this a few weeks ago before I had discovered this forum and had not used it, so I thought I would give it a go. Applied using a damp Maguiars soft foam applicator pad and applied evenly to the car. This was then buffed off with a dry, clean soft Mags applicator pad.

Finally I was going to use some Simoniz tyre shine but unfortunately the spray mechanism had broken so I could not get any out. I used it about 4 weeks ago and it did give a good long lasting shine which had only really disappeared this week.

I was really pleased with the finished results but do need a few more items to really make the car look its best. I hope you like the results of my first attempt but I still have much to learn.

Here are some after pictures.
Thanks for looking.

Hope you like.
