How I spent my afternoon
« on: March 04, 2009, 12:04:54 AM »
Today's detailing:

I decided to detail the allroad. It REALLY needed it. too many ski trips had let mud, mag chloride and other debris build up. I forgot to take a before picture, so just know the car was really dirty.  Not quite this bad, but pretty close:



even after washing there were still defects to be taken care of.  There was a mysterious white splatter:


as well as swirl marks and scratches


So, I started off with some heavy clay work


Then dove into the swirl remover


that left the car covered in residue


which got wiped off with a microfiber cloth


then finally it was time for some wax


after applying it to the whole car, it had to sit for at least 30 minutes


So I used that time to go fly a kite with my kid (it was nap time for her little sis)


finally it was time to go back to work on the car back to the microfiber cloth


the finish on the car looks pretty good now


no more funny white spots on the door


fewer swirl marks


yea for clean cars

If I dont find a job soon, maybe I should start a detailing business.

Looks great Andrew, can't wait to get all my stuff out of storage and detail both my cars, they are looking a bit shoddy these days.
