July 2016 AO Detailing Competition Vote

Time to vote to pick a winner for July



Just a reminder, as with the AO COTY competition this is a fun competition but at the same time members have taken the time & effort to clean their cars, take pics & post them, so similar rules apply.

So please no vote rigging, organised campaigns, use of additional or multiple accounts, coercion, promoting membership for voting purposes or any other method to increase votes for one entrant, against the spirit of the competition.

Members encouraging others to vote for their car will be disqualified, members encouraging others to vote for other entrants may result in that entry being disqualified, so again vote for whichever entry you think deserves to win & let everyone else do the same.


Full list of rules here https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/car-d...ion-rules.html

To satisfy your curiosity in my case the process was as follow:

Jet wash the car with Karcher K 2.900
Filled up a bucket with hot water and mixed two caps of Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner
Washed the whole car with above water using sheep skin gloves bought from Halfords including the alloys.
Rinsed the car with Karcher K 2.900
Took off excess residue of water
Dried the car using large yellow microfiber towels
Clay bared the whole car using Autoglym Clay Bar and Autoglym detailer
Polished (by hand) the car with Mer Ultimate Shine Polish using microfiber cloths
A lot of buffing with other microfiber cloths
Not happy with this I used Autoglym super rasin polish as top coat
A lot more buffing and cloths being used (more washing for the wife)
Greased the tyres
Applyed Autoglym alloy wax
Buffed the excess wax off the alloy
Reapplied a second coat of alloy wax
Buffed the excess again
A lot of elbow grease in the process
Put all the equipment away once finished
Enjoyed looking at the car for a while and drove it

:-) :-)
