Mine got a thorough going over yesterday. Special attention to a few areas; the rubber, as a build up of tire dressing had them a little greasy. The exterior glass got a clay all over, still probably needs a polish but I'm confident I got rid of a load of gunk! Engine bay got a quick dry brush and vacuum. Door shut areas that I don't usually hit got some APC and cleaned up quite well. Only time for a detail spray drying aid and no further top up protection - eager to get the polish out on the next day I have free. Still a few too many water marks for my liking, so I'll be adding koch chemie FSE to my arsenal for sure - keen to see what that does with my wheels, water marks are the worst there. Few photos;

No Waxstock for me sadly but still got a productive day of detailing in... brother in law asked if I could spruce up a van that he has heavily repaired (whole new roof, all new interior, full respray) in preparation for it to be driven and used at his Villa in Spain.

Mainly the plastic light covers and all the bumper plastics etc to be done. Came up bot too bad!

Got home and remembered I'd promised my dad I'd do his motor as well. Having just purchased a Nilfisk C125.7 for cheap with the excellent amazon deals, was a perfect chance to try it out (really impressed with this for only £70).

The usual steps were carried out. Firstly the wheels were rinsed then cleaned with the brilliant Carpro Iron X shampoo in the bucket, roughly 10ml added to it and also in a sprayer. Foamy, slick, strong cleaning ability, it's the only shampoo I've came across that is sufficient to clean dirty, unprotected wheels to a good standard.

During the contact wash I decided to try out the new Autoglanz shampoo called Pure. This would be done in a new method I've been keen to try. 1 bucket for rinsing the mitt with the IK9 being used to apply the shampoo. 10ml added to 2L of warm water, worked brilliantly. Super slick, tons of lube and perfect cleaning ability, no scent at all and a true pure shampoo. Worth mentioning this was while using the thinnest foam attachment on the IK9. Plenty thick enough with this, I imagine with the medium dryness foam it would be super thick.

Think this will be my new method of cleaning during the contact wash, just seemed to offer more slickness and suds over the full vehicle at all times. This was all done, including a prewash, layer of wet coat and tyre dressing in only 2 hrs, a new record for me!

Ps. The valet pro detail brushes are cheap rubbish aren't they... used no more than 8-10 times to clean the wheel nuts only. Fell to bits with only the carpro shampoo today, not impressed.

Strange that, I’ve had one for wheels, using all sorts of cleaners, and it’s perfectly ok after a couple of years use. Maybe a dodgy one?

I've had a larger one for years which has been perfect. Not impressed with these smaller ones though. Might be a dodgy batch or something, might get in touch with them to confirm they are genuine.

Gave my E Class a top up. Previous two washes the car received a coat of Dodo Juice Supernatural Hybrid. Even after two weeks and 500+ miles the paintwork was beading like crazy.

Washed and topped up with some Red Mist. Must admit it's such an easy product to use!

Clean the inside of my fn2, surfex hd on the doors and dash, a good vac and finished the plastics with carpro perl. Should keep it protected for a good few months.
