  • So tired but worth it

    Finished a 9 hr night shift last night getting home around 8am this morning. Mooched around for a bit and then with it being a nice day thought i would stay up and give the car a going over. I must admit that after starting i wish i hadnt bothered as i really didnt have the energy but it was well overdue its summer detail although to be honest it wasnt in as bad a state as i expected. So process was as follows:

    citrus de-grease
    rinse
    snowfoam
    rinse
    wheels washed with bilberry
    wheels rinsed
    car washed 2bm with Zaino shampoo
    rinsed
    clayed with Souns fine clay
    car washed again as above
    dryed
    machine polished with rotary using hex logic pad and Menz final finish
    Dodo Juice Lime Prime applied with rotary
    Dodo Juice Blue Velver Pro wax
    wipe down with Zaino Z8
    wheels waxed with fpk1000
    tyres dressed
    windoows cleaned

    by the time that i had finished i had been up around 25 hrs and couldnt be bothered with anymore but to be honest it didnt much more. paintwork isnt 100% but as good as i could be bothered to get it . Some pic's:

            Very nice Jay , i think snowfoam would have been overkill but you probably enjoyed doing it
