    What did you do today detailing related?

    This thread is for any and everything detailing related for example, paint correction on my vehicle, ordered (x product) from autogeek, washed the vehicle, thinking about picking up x product, etc

    for me over the past couple days I've put over 40 hours into my vehicle and heres a couple shots, if interested in more check my full correction thread out!
    SON1C Blue Paint Correction 40+ hours invested , enjoy!

    and again different location

    shine after just 105 and ipa wipedown, what an improvement over the uncorrected paint

    Looks much better!
    Well, late last eve I washed two vehicles I had recently detailed and simply used a CG quick detailer/spray wax, nice and slick again.
    Still working on my shopping cart with new items to try.

    I removed the coat of DG #111 that I applied last night, used DG's AW to remove it, didn't need to but I said what the hell, another coat doesn't hurt, right!

    Good thread idea, I see this one getting pretty big!

    Tried out some products from Croftgate USA. Really like their Wash & Wax rinse-less wash. Very slick and easy to wipe on/off. Also tried their tire shine and that was nice as well. Cleans rims/tires with ease.

    re: I just banged my cat, I loved it!!!!!

    After two weeks of pre-show prep on my El Camino, I was all detailed out. Fortunately, it rained all day yesterday in Pittsburgh. When the birds would choose to deposit their half-digested cherries on the cars parked outside, I'd go out in the rain and wipe off the deposits so my newly applied DG finishes on the daily drivers wouldn't be compromised.

    Havent done anything today but yesterday i tried P21S GEP and noticed that it is very effective as a water spot remover! My water spots were topical and not etched so take that FWIW.

    Did a waterless wash on my Parhfinder using OptiClean. Then I wiped it down with V7. Car was pretty clean, but I'm taking in today to have the front bumper repainted to fix some scrapes that were on it when I bought the vehicle.

    I have some crazy idea that if you being them a well detailed car they will do a better Job because they see you are picky about your car. Also getting two dents removed with PDR

    The Werner Work Platform is the best detailing tool anyone can buy that works on SUVs.



    It makes cleaning the roof and windows do much easier. Before this I was standing on buckets upside down like an idiot.

    If the tree was on my property rather than my next door neighbor's, it would have been firewood years ago. That stuff can etch clearcoat in a heartbeat.
