August 2016 AO Detailing Competition Vote

Time to vote to pick a winner for August



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

2) Vacuumed inside of car.
3) Leather and interior trim wiped down with clean damp cloths
4) Hose outside of car thoroughly.
5) Washed paintwork with Autoglym Car Shampoo and Conditioner using clean sponge.
6) Hose off thoroughly again.
7) Whilst still wet use Autoglym Aqua Wax applied with microfibre cloth then buff with different microfibre cloth till paintwork like glass.
8) Clean wheels using Autoglym Wheel Cleaner with sponge and dry off with microfibre cloth.
9) Cleaned exhaust tips with wire wool and Autosol
10) Clean glass with Autoglym Glass Cleaner and clean cloth.
11) Cleaned chrome grill with Simonez chrome cleaner and microfibre cloth.

Total time most of the day with several stops inbetween, just hope my photography can do it justice...

Mind you, I am running a lot of various additives through the tank during the last month or so, so probably made worse as all the varnish and coke is cleaned out of the engine. Didn't have much time for final pics last night, and it also rained a little during the night, and the rain brought down all the dust again, so I need to do it all again lol. What I would say though is that the Meguires MT320 DA polisher is very good equipment, albeit over priced. I'll probably compound and cut on the next wash as I noticed a few swirls before I started. Will keep me outa mischief for a while.

Plastics were treated to a dose of Solution Finish and rubbery bits got some love with a dose of Gummi Plfedge! The front bumper was painted with a whole can of Plastidip clear to protect it from stones and bugs at the race track hence the different texture in the pics

Zymol HD cleanse to give a good base for the wax to bond too. Then finally waxed using Zymol Concours using my hands - palms and fingers to massage the wax onto the bodywork, left to cure for 30mins before removal. Finishing with the wheels being cleaned with the iron remover (if people haven't tried this and are using normal wheel cleaner, give it a go, its much better at getting the wheels clean and a lot more kind to the wheels!) and coating then with Dodo Juice Future Armour sealant. Hope you like the pics. Ignore the wife, reading her kindle in the car!

A wash (Autoglym) and going over with some quick detailer (Waxaddict) of the 205 earlier this month. I've been using Autofinesse Revive on the trim too.
