  • Had to share my hard work with you....

    Hi peeps,

    Took stock of some new cleaning products from Chemical Guys and as its the North West meet tomorrow i thought id give them a whirl and get my car looking its best - no doubt it will et very dirty on the drive up there

    So heres how it went....

    1) Washed car with the two bucket method - used Tirtle Wax pro shine shampoo and lambs wool mitt.

    2) Clayed the car - used Chemical Guys fine grade clay and lube.

    3) Washed the car again as above.

    4) Dried the car using micro fibre and waffel towels.

    5) Polished - used Chemical Guys Prop-Polish+ with acrylic shine.

    6) Glazed - used Chemical Guys EZ-Creme Glaze with acrylic shine II.

    7) Sealant - used Jetseal 109 and left for an hour to cure.

    Sealant - second application of Jetseal 109 and left for an hour to cure

    9) Wax - two coates of Petes 53 Carnuba wax

    Then onto the wheels...

    1) Washed as above

    2) Clayed as above

    3) Washed as above

    4) Sealant - used Autoglym nano spray sealant and left for an hour to cure

    5) Wax - used Petes 53 carnuba wax

    Also did the interior and engine bay. Took me ALONG time, well most of the day to be honest but was well chuffed with the results and had to take a pic, let me know what you think....(sorry the pic's arnt great)...

            The cameras great, Sony cybershot 10.1 megapixel. However, if i had the flash on it took away all the shine and without it you get the above pics which show the overall effect better than with the flash on, there sonly one light in our garage so not the best for taking pic's and it was getting dark outside.
