Massaging my Bella

Well, I've just spent a couple of hours cleaning and waxing my bella. Roy (from The Shine Experience) left me a little bit of the Swissvax "Mystery" wax after he detailed my car. To apply this extremely expensive wax, you have to put a little in the palm of your hand to warm it up and then you rub it on with your hands. I was a bit wary of doing this (it's a bit weird) but it is actually very easy to do and works far better than using a rag or applicator for applying the wax. The Mystery buffs up really easily, my bella is looking beautiful again. And she's had a massage!

Cheers,

Nigel

Re: Massaging my Bella

Nigel I'm proud of you!

I get funny looks most days of the week when I am detailing cars. I was in the West End today detailing an Aston Martin V8 Vantage and you could see a whole floor of an office looking as if to say what on earth is he doing! It got even worse when I got the feather duster out to remove any last bits of dust!

Re: Massaging my Bella

I know what you mean! I was lucky to be able to do this in the near privacy of my garage (although I did call my son out to have a look!). BTW, I must get me one of those feather dusters. I had real problems keeping bits of plant material off the newly cleaned car as it was quite windy. Seems mad but I know it's necessary.

Guess I've got this detailing bug. I had to drive into work today so I'm parying it doesn't rain!

Cheers,

Nigel
