Let me be the first this months. So, I decided to wash my car, whether was good on Sunday, I got up early and had a new product to test. It was the second wax I've ever used. Ok, I might be crucified for calling it wax, but I don't care
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.
My first entry into the comp. Took the car up to the mountains last weekend, but I washed her first so I think that makes it OK by the rules :yes: Clear coat scratches were taken out with a 4000 grit sanding pad and Meguiars Scratch X2.0 and the car finished with Duragloss Polish
I gave my main workhorse MiTo a full works clean today. I know my MiTo doesn't get mentioned much compared to my Spider but it is very important given it is used most days.
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.
Heres a writeup and some pictures of a lovely GTV 2.0TB that i did.
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.
PS: the rims are the winter wheels and have after this been replaced by a lovely set of teledials.
I can post more specific info about what was done but it would be a lot to read and i was not able to make a spoiler to hide it in the post.
Quick wash with Bouncers Slick **** and wick detailed with Bouncers Done & Dusted. Engine bay used Done & Dusted on the plastics and Collinite 845 on the bumper and slam panel, just approaching 60,000 miles.
