Easter is here and i have too much time on my hands for my own good
Have just spent small fortune on Autoglym products SRP, EGP etc. Now, having bought these products i now realise that i need the cloths and such like to both apply and remove!
Right for SRP i have seen a polishing sponge and also on the SRP destructions it recommends 'perfect polishing cloth' Now i know theres no fool like an old fool and i was just about to buy the PPC but! i thought that i would ask you guys the tricks of the trade? I do not have a machine so it will be elbow grease application! What ye recommend?
use some foam applicators such as meguiars or autoglym to apply and a microfibre cloth to remove.
a good tip for the srp, ignore the instructions. you need to keep working the polish until it becomes a clear haze. don't let it dry! then just buff off with the microfibre cloth. you'll be amazed at the results, SRP is very very good.
Thanks Gents! whom ever said "where there's muck there's brass" must have worked in the car detailing industry!
Have just purchased one of AG Applicator mits, cheers SR, for the recommendation. Also bought the waffle weave towel with free lint cloth included, both ebay purchases came to approx £10. excuse my ignorance? but, will i have to buy a new set with each product ie one mit and cloth set for SRP and another set for EGP? God! i hope not
sorry karma but yes. overwise you'll have to clean and dry the applicator and waffle towel between the SRP and EGP. i have separate applicators and cloths for each product. after each polish and wax they all get cleaned.
Personally I use an Autoglym washmit to clean the car, standard terry cloths / towels / chamois to dry, and then standard valeting cloths from Halfords. Then run a soft towel over to get rid of any lint,
(Valeting cloths say they are lint free, they lie, )
Thanks Darren! Im finding this detailing thing really confusing! but educational, is a soft towel "Peach Skin" microfibre a lens cleaning cloth as in For cleaning spectacles? I do have a large one for glasses, but i seem to remember it costing me £20!!!!!
Not a fan of the waffle drying cloths. A decent large microfibre for drying and a smaller one for polishing off residue is what you need. Some super soft "peach skin" microfibre's will give you the ultimate end result
