  • Detailing from scratch

    Im just curious.

    How long is the accepted norm for clean you car?

    I've just spent about three and a half hours on mine t'day. am I normal??

    I gave it a wash, polish, wax, seal, Cleaned wheels (forgot to do them) and all the black rubber/plastic bits.

    Thats not too bad mate tbh. It varys for me, i havnt a machine polisher but when i did mine and took the wheels off too, plus a wash polish and wax it took about 7 hours iirc. It depends how long i take on the polish really as i take a while on each panel as doing it by hand gives me backache

            Cheers fellas, that makes me feel better know I not the only one

            I have to do it all by hand because the chance of getting the car parked anywhere near the house is a miracle.

                    was this including hovering. in total i spend about same time on a normal weekly wash, if i was to do polish and wax mine would be about 5/6 hours... thats taking my time though...

                        My weekly clean takes between 2-3 hours, thats washing wheels, rinse wash rinse dry, quick wipe over the engine bay and dash and a shake of the matts

                            lol, i get the same mate... funny looks and even a few neighbours saying, "you will wash the paint away", kind of annoys me in a way...
