    Just done a quick clean up and wax

    I was feeling slightly under the weather today and had given the car a full clay, de tar on friday.

    Since then it was just sitting in the garage, so this brings us to today.

    I was thinking what was easy to put on, didn't require much curing time, looked good on blue and offered protection for maybe 2/3 weeks when I may get a chance to give her the once over with the rotary :buffer:

    So I went in and QD'd the whole car with NXT, after using snowfoam, body solvent and clay the car was feeling a little dry as you can imagine.

    Well I applied the EX with clearkote applicators, skimmed them across the thick parts to reduce the amount of product clinging to my MF's. Let it set up, maybe 15 minutes and removed.

    Next up I applied the OCW, sprayed on a panel at a time and buffed off.

    Probably took about 30 minutes as I was in no rush, just took my time.

    The bonnet has collinite 476s on the right and collinite 845 on the left (testing the differences).

    Afters only cos im lazy and never took befores.







    I will take her outside when its not so cold as I know the garage can make it appear wetter than it is, but the lights don't tend to mask defects which is good!

    John.

    oops, I forgot to edit it.

    EX = Poorboys EX sealant
    OCW = Optimum Carnuba Wax
    Collinite is a long lasting carnuba wax that I am testing just now folks, ill keep you updated.

    That finish makes me sick.

    Sick because I never have the time to make my car look that good.

    Top products, JJ is the Man!
