Woke up today at 10:50am and spotted a good sky, and my new gazebo turned up so I thought I'd crack the rotary out and de-swirl the VXR. here's a before shot for you all.
Nice and dirty . Now I didn't take any progress shots as I wanted to press on with this one, but I will tell you what I did. First off I citrus degreased the lower half of the car, then cleaned the wheels with Megs Wheel Brightener, an EZ Detail brush for the inners, and a 1" horsehair paintbrush for the faces. I then washed with Maxi Suds II, a lambswool mitt and the trusty 2 bucket method. The car was then dried with a Sonus Der Wunder towel, after having 40l of RO water poured over it.
Then the protection went up in the form of my new gazebo, out the front of my house, in the middle of a cul-de-sac. I put the gazebo up the rolled the car into it
I then went round doing the car as follows, one panel at a time;
Clayed with CYC Polyclay and Last Touch as lube
Corrected with Menzerna IP PO85RD 3.02 on a Sonus DAS Scratchbuster pad and a Sonus SFX-1 Spot pad
Paint cleansed with Zymol HD Cleanse.
Once the whole car was done, I then applied a coat of Dodo Juice Doublewax (Hard).
The metal was then polished with Megs NXT All Metal Polysh, and the glass done with Rain-X Foaming glass cleaner and the plastics done with Einzett Teifenphlager (sp?). Once that was done, I then applied the soft part of the Doublewax.
Yes I did get lots of funny comments about having a gazebo up outside the house, especially as I was pushing the car back and forth to get certain areas shaded as I didn't want the bakes to give out any more dust. Anyway, here's the important things
