    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    Because I'm an amazing brother, I gave my sisters car a well deserved wash this afternoon. I felt sorry for it to be honest, having to endure a Melbourne winter as a daily driver. Spent the better part of 5 hours on it which included a full interior detail (trim, door jams, leather, glass) as well as a another coat of CarPro Reload after a really good tubbing.



















    Despite not being an SUV type of person, the F-Pace is a pleasure to drive. And a pleasure to detail as well.

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    Yesterday morning clouds seemed to be heavy and the sun would take it's while to get through. So filling the buckets and takeing out the wash eqiupment and hook up the PW. This time I just must have the weather gods with me LOL. To applying a new coat of the TW SNS. Which had failed totaly after 6 weeks for me.

    Prewash with Bilt Hamber Auto-Foam. To be honest I was almost skipping the 2bm wash. It cleans up so extremly well with the water pressure from the PW to clean with. Then Tac System Mystic Bubble which is if not exactly then very a like Carpro Reset. Still like Reset more LOL but it was one of my first product I bought a little over 2 years ago now when decided to be doing hand washing again. So Reset has it's place in my arsenal. Drying with a large twisted loop mf drying towel and no drying aid as useally.

    Applyied TW SNS on the roof and the half of the hood. Much better experience than the first time I applyied it. The other half was sprayed on some water again. And then sprayed 2 spritz of the Meguiars Hybrid Ceramic Wax. To my surprise it came out of the bottle in a very fine mist and spread out on the whole half of the hood area with this 2 spritzes. They must have been switched the spray head on these. It's the EU version of it. Drying with a softer mf drying towel and buffed with a mf towel. Both applyied very good and easy and no visual streaking when inspected in the sun as good as possible.

    Bilt Hamber Auto-Foam working



    HCW on the passenger side of the hood and SNS on the drivers side and roof.





    Not bad for a finish in not so good condition.




    Great work on the Golf DetailKitty!

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    Didn't take any pictures because I'm lazy and truthfully I forgot but I "detailed" my Grandma's 2013 Cadillac XTS. It's a gun metal type color. Just a basic exterior wash with an interior cleaning. Broke out the machine to hit a couple if areas that had some red paint transfer (someone bumped her car in a parking lot) as well as a few other spots with some scuffs. Cleaned up well and most importantly........Grandma was happy.

    My Grandma is 80 years old and we lost my Grandpa between Thanksgiving and Christmas last year so she's obviously making a lot of adjustments in life and she's doing so well and I'm very happy for her. Last Thursday would have been there 60th Anniversary so she had a tough day but she's doing incredibly well and staying busy....Quite honestly she's busier and has more of a social life than I do at 32 lol.

    Miss my Grandpa everyday but so happy for every single day I have my Grandma.

    I was raised by my grandparents and I got my passion for detailing from my grandfather. The first car I detailed was his 1966 Chevy Impala. I lost him in 1997 and I lost grandma in 2011. I think about them every day. Spend as much time as you can with your grandma and cherish every moment.

    They must have been great folks, UD.

    You turned out pretty good, if I say so myself.
