Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo Estate Winter Detail

Did a detail on my Monte Carlo estate to get it ready for winter, plus trying out new waxes for body and wheels.

No before shots due to my phone battery being too low at the start but process was as follows:

Wheels hit with Bilt Hamber Autowheel, tyres and arches with Meguiar's APC. Everything agitated with brushes and rinsed off. Wheels were wiped down with Auto Finesse Oblitarate.

Rest of the car got foamed with Bilt Hamber Autofoam, then a 2BM wash with Meguiar's Gold Class. Decontaminated with Carpro Iron-X, Auto Finesse Oblitarate and the G3 Clay Mitt. Dried with the AF Aqua Deluxe towel.

Went over the car with Dodo Juice Lime Prime on the DA with a black finishing pad, wiped down with Carpro Eraser then applied for the first time Obsession Wax Dynasty. Pretty easy to use, left 10ish minutes to cure, then wiped with short pile MF and buffed with plush MF, as per Obsession Wax's recommended method. Leaves a great finish I think and promises decent durability so hoping to see the car through the winter. Glass cleaned inside and out with Nilco Nilglass.

Wheels were wiped down with Eraser also then got a coat of Angelwax Bilberry wheel wax. Another easy to use wax, applied everywhere I could reach without taking the wheels off, left a few minutes then buffed off. Leaves a great finish on my gloss black wheels, hoping it lasts a good while. Tyres dressed with Meguiar's Endurance.

Finally the after shots!















Also managed to get a beading shot later on in the evening!
