September 2018 AO Detailing Competition Vote

Time to vote to pick the winner



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-...ion-rules.html (Monthly Detailing Competition Rules)

Followed up the work on Sunday by rinsing it down, polishing the paintwork with Farecla G3 Paintwork Restorer, then waxed it using Farecla Super Resin Wax.
Finished off the black trim bits with a cloth and a little bit of WD40. Gave the engine bay a clean as well.

I followed that up with a going over with the clay mitt. Once c;ean and dry I put on a couple of layers of Poorboys Black Hole. I left the EGP off for the time being because I want to try a wax instead. Finally, the plastics were done with my old favourite boiled linseed oil.

Member car:

CRV/Jaaag

If it was "What car would you want to take home?" it would be the Giulia. But it isn't so the shiny black Brera gets my vote.

Thanks for the votes everyone. I'd hate to think people voted for me because the car's desirability rather than the effort put, because I did put in a lot of effort. Thanks again.

I vote for my choice for a number or reasons including: results, effort, picture quality & details.

Manufacturer or model shouldn't be a consideration.
