March 2016 AO Detailing Competition Vote

Time to vote to pick a winner for March

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.

For those reasons we ask that members vote for whoever they think deserves to win

The big three day clean. Day one Friday 11th, cleaned the wheels with Simoniz alloy wheel cleaner then washed with Auto Glym bodywork shampoo conditioner rinsed off and dried.
Day two Saturday 12th applied Auto Glym super resin polish to the paintwork buffed off and then applied a coat of Auto Glym extra gloss protection.
Day three Sunday 13th cleaned all the glass inside and out with Auto Glym car glass polish, Vacumed the inside and cleaned the leather with Simoniz leather protection wipes.
She was looking a lot better but it was still nice day and I had the time so I gave her a second coat of extra gloss protection. Job done.

Washed

Autosmart platinum

Engine plastics were done with boiled linseed oil and the steering wheel with gliptone's quite spectacular scuffmaster dye.

Before and after on the steering wheel

I used:

Snow foam lance from eBay with Autoglym pressure washer shampoo, covered and rinsed off.

Simoniz wax free shampoo with a microfibre mitt, dried with a microfibre cloth.

Autoglym instant tyre dressing.

Meguiars clay bar, used autoglym rapid detailer as lube.

Autoglym ultra deep shine to polish.

Simoniz car wax over that.

That's really quite tough. I'd normally go for the older ones as acknowledgement of the fact that getting something old looking that clean takes some real effort but I can't really separate the two spiders on that basis. Instead I'm going for Alfa John's Brera, purely because of the clarity of the reflections on his bonnet.

All pics are posted in the order they were posted by the entrants in the entries thread, & that's how they are displaying for me.

Maybe it's a Tapatalk related issue, try using one of the Classic skins.

I thought this, on tapatalk it's fine strangely. It's when I use safari on my phone to go to the desktop site it's all jumbled. (I tend to use the browser more than tapatalk)
