    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    I got to wash the wife`s car today...

    Products used:
    • Chem Guys Citrus Wash and Gloss - tires and wells
    • DoDo Juice Born to Be Mild - paint, using the better perfect wash method
    • A couple mf chenille wash mitts (new ones sold by PBMG)
    • Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner
    • Mothers Back to Black Tire Renew - tire rubber
    • Optimum Power Clean - wells, barrels
    • Chem Guys Speed Wipe - jambs


    The products I used for the first time were:

    Sonax Wheel Cleaner - no color show, I must keep the wheels clean

    Mothers Back to Back Tire Renew - after the wash, I noticed OPC really did not remove all the tire brown so I tried the Mothers and really did a nice job. The application method is just spray on and wipe off so need to deal with the hose. An excellent candidate for a rinseless wash tire cleaner. I definitely plan to do a review of this soon.

    More tomorrow....apply an LSP (maybe Prima), dress the tires, clean the glass.

    Started a 97 Peterbuilt. Paint is really bad. Lots of buffing to do. About 5 and a half hours on the hood alone.

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    I finished up the wife`s car

    Today...

    Poorboys Spray and Wipe - surface prep (water spots)
    Poorboys Bug Squash 3:1 -plastic cowling
    Do Do Juice Purple Haze (not pro) - paint
    Chem Guys Inner Clean - interior
    Blackfire Protectant - dash
    Mothers VLR - back seats, steering wheel
    Mothers Tech Leather cleaner/conditioner - front seats
    Mothers Cleaner Wax - on exterior plastic chrome
    Poorboys Bold n Bright Gel - wells
    Optimum Opti-Bond Gel - tires
    Ultima Waterless Wash - wheels
    Sprayway Glass cleaner - exterior
    Meguiars Glass Cleaner - interior

    New products this time.

    DoDo Juice Purple Haze (once I got it out of the small sampler container) went on very easy, let it haze, then removed. Applied with a Rupes 15 with a LC ultrasoft white pad (now it is purple, did not rinse clean). I really liked the one handed operation of the Rupes on the roof thanks to the narrow body.

    This was applied on top of an old WGDPS application. It was showing its time at 10 weeks or so.

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    Well I got my hose fixed. The hose going into my inline water filter cracked. It gave me a chance to get my work car (Dodge Charger) cleaned up.

    Wash with DG901
    OCW
    Optimum Tire Shine

    I also put a coat of V7 on my Dodge Ram and cleaned up the engine and treated with 303.

    All and all a productive 2 days detail wise

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    Oh what a day. It was still a bit cooler than normal this year but had a chance to start the spring detailing of my daily driver after the motivating drive to Detail Fest. I came back itching to clean it up.

    Today, I did the prep for the paint cleaning and protection tomorrow.

    Products used:
    CG Citrus Wash and Gloss: - wheels/wells
    Sonax Full Effect wheel cleaner: - not much of a visual show..chrome stays clean
    Optimum Power Clean: tires
    P21s Total Autowash: cowling, bug removal bug. I really like the clingy behavior
    Adams Car Wash mixed with Optimum Power Clean - strip/clean the paint. It did the trick in a foam cannon. Lots of sticky suds
    Autogeek microfiber chenille wash mitt - has one of the softest interiors of as any wash mitt
    Adam`s Car Wash - worked well with the wash mitt
    CG Speed Wipe - Jams

    Using my personally designed wash method, cleaning the wheel area and the jambs are really the time eaters compared to the paint.

    Tomorrow...subject to change:
    WG Paint Enhancer or Poorboys Pro Polish
    Menzerna Powerlock
    Blackfire Midnight Sun - will follow on Monday
    Polish and seal glass with Pinnacle Glass Sealant

    After wash and during jamb cleaning


    Finished
