May 2016 AO Detailing Competition Vote

Time to vote to pick a winner for May

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 only vote for whoever they think deserves to win

It is FK 1000p High Temperature wax. It smells very technical. Which is kind of good - no temptation to inhale those chemical evaporations covered by 'nice cherry' smell.

Plus I tried that Meguiar's gel for tyres. Wet affect looks good actually (I hate to admit it)

Anyway. Here it comes, the one allegedly Red Alfa Romeo And today (Monday evening it was raining a bit.

Wheels done first with Meguiars Hot Rims with my trusty Muc-Off wheel brush, then blasted off with pressure washer.

Then the usual pressure washer treatment, then using cherry snow foam and after that Meguiars Gold Class shampoo. Washed off and dried with the usual car towels.

Then used a Nanoskin Smooth Instant Detail spray (a claying alternative), followed by AutoBrite Brilliance polish. Finally I waxed it with Meguiars Deep Crystal Carnauba wax.

Interior wasn't too bad so was pretty simple, just some rubbish on the carpets I hoovered up, then I used some Turtlewax spray on the dash/panels, getting rid of the dust build up, one of those certainties in life is dust.

Went ok, again always learning though.

The car got a full repaint during december 2015 in a black paint normally used on Ferrari's and the current owner wanted some proper paint protection.

1.The car was thoroughly washed with different types of chemicals before a gentle handwash.
2.Then i inspected the car and skipped claying as the car was perfectly clean after the wash.
3.The car was polished by the brilliant Rupes 21 accompanied by its little brother Rupes Mini. Hard to get to spots were polished by hand.
4.Then for the exciting part, the Si3D coating by Nanolex which boasts a 2-3 year lifetime as well as becoming almost a second clear coat with a 9H hardness.

Thanks for reading

I blame the shadows, sunlight & the lack of a calibrated monitor I don't think it'll affect the voting

I list the colours as just a quick reference, the username & now the entry number are also included so people can easily select the correct option to vote for.

I still feel bad about that. Excellent efforts all round but my vote goes to Durty for going the extra mile.
