Well as your probably aware by now a while ago Jiraffe at one of the local meets asked me to advise him on the state of his paintwork which had really peculiar fine scratching all over the bonnet and roof.....I have never seen anything like it beofre because it was so unifrm and fine not something that one would associate with poor wash procedure or respray etc???
Anyway i said when i was not so busy with my job we,d get together with a few guys and have a day and a play , this day was sunday!!
I invited Dazturbo and Maxhead over aswell for pizza and told them to strip my car down and de-mod it ready for sale and i would have a play with Gareths superb gsi.
aMy usual routine applied with Gareths car , wheels cleaned with Zym0ol wheel cleaner as these wheels needed little work and zym0ol wheel cleaner is actually not very strong and more peppermint...
Then car foamed :
and then sprayed off after 5 minutes
and then washed using 2 bucket method and Maxi Suds II and zym0ol sponge
then car was clsayed using polyclay and lube made from autowash
Now one thing i have noticed is the foam does like to dry like snow when cold weather so beware as i nearly lost my front teeth much to the amusement of the gimps watching me
car was then rewashed
and doused in ro water
before being qd,ed and dryed with an aquatouch towel
The three stooges offered no help!!!
The car already exhibited a good shine just from the claying and wash alone....
The car then went into the batcave for tapeing up
and some test panels were tried to work on these scratches which were almost impossible to photograph on silver
Maybe you can see them here , half bonnet done , very difficult to photograph due to light ...
Meanwhile outside the gay cavaliero,s were setting a bad example to my son who now calls them the sweet peas.
De-mod was in progress....
Bonnet and wing finished...
Then Pizza turned up
Correction now finshed so tape off
I decided to get the destiny out for this as i havent used it in ages and love the wax and almondy smell and Gareths a good mate and i know he will look after the car as he loves it so much!!
Meanwhile the lads were taking the pi$$ and having a play with all my bits and giving Daz,s car a going over ...
The Albatross joke was NOT FUNNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Car was hd-cleansed then waxed by pad
and then buffed off
and buffed off
and then sonus tyre gelled
all black or grey trim black wowed
Gareths getting excited about his shiny car now.hahaha
front grill a challenge with black wow
Zorst autosoled and rubber and seals 303 aerospaced
AND JUST FOR DAZ
Very nice Daz..:thumbs:
