Detailed my car yesterday!

Recommended Posts

Sup guys. Never mentioned it before but detailing is one of my favorite hobbies, next to working on car and my audio system

 

last time i detailed my car was in May of 2012, a little over a year ago. My car had a bunch of swirls and light scratches and water spots and whatnot so I decided to go ahead and fully detail my car today.

 

Products used/Directions

 

Washed with Dawn soap - 2 bucket method

Clay barred entire car

washed car again/dried

Megs Microfiber d300 Compound with MF cutting disc

Megs d301 polish with finishing disc

Four Star ultimate paint protection sealant using white foam pad

Chemical guys Blacklight

Blackfire Aluminum compoound with fine grade steel wool for the exhaust polish

stoners window cleaner

Meguiars Ultimate black trim restorer

purple power on wheels then rinsed and cleaned again with soap and water with microfiber towel/dried and sealed with blackfire wet diamond/collinite 845 insulater wax

Ultima tire and trima guard plus used to coat tires and do interior as well

 

 

 

Man! the car is so freakin slick and shiny its unreal, i miss my car being like this as i took a little break from detailing due to school/studying for dental school and work but im back at it again!

 

anyways

 

here is some before pictures

My coating on the car protects the paint from damage such as that. I do not need to wax my car at all, it shines like the sun from the Wetgloss.

Im saying the dawn pulls all waxes and coatings off bc its strong and if u dont apply wax or wetgloss back after it causes problems ..my buddy clayed his car then it rained that night ..was real sunny the next day and it was a pita to get the spots off

Why do you think you need to wetsand? I'd be against wet sanding if you don't have experience. Maybe practice on something you don't care about. People are scared because you can easily damage / sand through the clear coat. Unless you know what you're doing and have a paint gauge..leave the wet sanding to the professionals.

Wow! That looks good! I feel like a slacker now. I "detailed" mine last week. Products used: A pressure washer and some Dawn liquid. Oh, and a step ladder to get on top so I could pressure wash the interior out also....

 

and to get the fenders back to black...Rustoleum Satin Black spray paint! Came out great..
