Time to vote to pick the winner :thumbs:



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-detailing/745785-monthly-detailing-competition-rules.html

1. danieldvblue - Black Giulia

First time entrant here following my efforts this Sunday:

Cleaned wheels with Angelwax Bilberry wheel cleaner.
Part dried wheels with Metro Blaster and cleaned again with Bilt Hamber Auto Wheel (to clean off stubborn brake dust).
Pressure washed car then applied Bilt Hamber Auto Foam.
Rinsed and then washed with Chemical Guys Auto Wash.
Rinsed with Raceglaze filtered water.
Dried wheels, wing mirrors, grilles etc with Metro Blaster.
Part dried all panels with Metro Blaster.
Applied Gtechniq C2 v3 Liquid Crystal to all external surfaces.
Applied Auto Glym Tyre Gel to tyres.

It is the first time I have used filtered water and the Metro Blaster in the same routine and it really was a winning combination in terms of time saved and results.

2. duemila - Red 145

Well as It was bloody freezing this was a quick shake down. A luxurious soak in Turtle Wax and boiled water from the brita water filter after it cooled down a bit. A really good sponge down with a brand new £1 sponge. After I did the body and bumpers I used the same sponge on the wheels, then I binned it. A quick dry down with a farecla polishing cloth and then I ran inside as it was freezing.

Looking good, however this was prep for trying a ceramic coating.

11) apply Nano 9h Ceramic coatings panel at a time, leave 4 mins approx then buff with microfiber cloths.
12) Apply Poorboys pink wheel wax to wheels and buff.

Take car out for a drive just because the Sun is out. Will see how the coating lasts over coming weeks etc. Before we go take some pictures for forum.

5. Jean_Luc Picard - Red Giulietta

Washed the Launch Edition today. Fairly simple wash, Bilt Hamber on the wheels, a mixture of cherry snowfoam and a bit of wash & wax shampoo rubbed on using a manual 1L pump up sprayer. Washed and dried with a handful of car cleaning towels. Some wet wipes on the interior mainly the pedals, hoovering the carpets. Finally did the best I could to make the exhaust tips shiny again, using some Autosol and some Fairy Platinum scouring pads.

No, "likes" aren't votes. Only votes are counted.


Sorry if I am missing something obvious, but how do you vote?

At the top of the page you can vote.


Ah, perhaps it’s not visible on the Tapatalk app.
