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

    The mustang and GTI look great!

    While grilling, I kept staring at my wife’s Flex and how dirty it was. So after dinner I busted out the power washer and supplies. Wheels and tires cleaned with Meguiars non acid wheel and tire cleaner and a tuff shine brush. Washed the vehicle with Meguiars car wash with carnuba. Dried with cobra guzzler and Gyeon silk drying towel. Tires dressed with Griots black satin tire coating.

    Living off of a dirt road definitely has some draw backs. I could see small amounts of dust settling into the roof a half hour after completing it.

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

    So I did my first wash since doing the TAC System Power Plus coating on the ES last Saturday. Now I know what your going to say, your supposed to wait 1 week, that would be tomorrow but I couldn't wait and besides, I did let it cure inside for 24 hrs before I took it out and it's been pretty sunny and hot this week so I think I'm good to go. Real quick the gloss is I N C R E D I B L E What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    To start things off I pre-treated the tires and wheelwells with Alien Kleen and used Auto-Fanatic foaming wheel cleaner on the rims and got after them with the usual 4 brushes and rinsed. I then foamed the car with Auto-Fanatic Snow Foam, let dwell and rinsed off. Ofcoarse at this point the beading was INSANE but it is the first wash after application but the beads on the roof were tight! At this point the car looked very clean but I had the 2BM ready to go so that was next. I used one capful of Built-Hamber carwash soap and honestly could've used 1/2 a cap, stuff is sooooo concentrated. After the wash/rinsing I used my Master Blaster to dry off the majority of the car and the tires/wheels real good, the rest of the car I used a Griot's Garage PFM and designated towel on the leftover on the tires/wheels but my 4 1/2 old is getting better on the tires/wheels thoughWhat did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    I finished up using 303 Tire Balm on the tires, maybe a 2nd coat tomorrowWhat did you do today, in regards to detailing?

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

    My first returning customer.



    This Outback was detailed by me a couple of months ago and needed some attention after a trek down a muddy track. The new Kranzle made short work of it and the application of Hydr02 last time really helped with maintenance today. I therefore gave it another coat of anticipation of next time.

    The customer was delighted to see it all shiny again and looks like this will be a regular gig.

    So with the equipment all out, it would have been rude of me to deny the Pony a wash.





    I used EliXir as a drying aid.

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

    Not smart of me to follow that beautiful red pony with my red car, but I gave my Z a foam bath with cg watermelon foam, dried with Gyeon silk towel and dressed the tires with Griots Satin tire coating.
