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. keithyboy - Black Fiesta

As it was elder child's birthday earlier in the week, I promised to give her car a proper going over this weekend. As younger child will be taking over the car later in the year I roped him in too.

First job was a wash with AG shampoo. This was a present and is no better than the crap I buy in Home Bargains.

Next I set Tom to work with the clay mitt whilst I finished buffing the newly repaired rear corner. From there I started doing the whole car with Megs compound whilst Tom attacked the cloudy headlights with the cheapo polishing pad in the drill. This quickly disintegrated, the moral of which is not buy Chinese tat from eBay.

Have gone over the whole car with compound, we went over it with AG SRP (chosen because there were two of us and I had two bottles) and finished off with Poorboys wax. Poorboys is my new supplier of choice.

Plastics were done with linseed oil, tyres with AG gel. Job done.

2. Nellytheroc - Silver Spider

This weekend was spent giving the Spider the works on Saturday and showing it off on Sunday at a car show...

Hosed down, citrus pre-wash applied followed by snow foam
Wheels cleaned with EZ Foaming Wheel cleaner (not much ‘foaming’ but it shifted the dirt), decontaminated with fallout remover and polished with wheel wax. AG tyre dressing applied.
Bodywork hosed down and 2 bucket washed, clayed, rinsed and dried.
DA polisher used to apply Meg’s ultimate and AG SRP followed by a coat of Dodo Juice Diamond White (not to be confused with the 8% ABV tart fuel popular in the late 80s).
Glass cleaned and RainX applied on the outside and RainX Anti-Fog inside.
Carpets & mats hoovered, dash cleaned and leather cleaned with Dodo Juice Supernatural.
Hood given a once over with one of them sticky roller things that women use to get fluff off their clothes.
AG QD used at the show.

I'd like to suggest that black Breras are excluded from this competition to make it fairer for everyone else. It's a bit like turning out for the darts team at your local. Everyone is doing their best then the opposition bring out Phil The Power Taylor.

BTW, the black Brera gets my vote.
