    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    12pm-4pm: Weekly wash for my Tacoma.

    Wash: 2 bucket grit guards
    DG901, ONRWW
    Micro Chenille mitts
    Dry: Blower and Cobra towels
    LSP: Wolfgang Deep Gloss Liquid Seal
    Glass: Invisible Glass, Aquapel

    4pm-8pm: Weekly wash of Wifes Camry. It has been 2 weeks, aggghhh! BUGS!

    Wash: same as truck + Pre-soak of front clip.
    Dry: same
    LSP: WDGLS on horizontal panels and Zymol Carbon on vertical panels.
    Glass: Aquapel application too.


    This was the first time I used the WOWA offering from Wolfgang on a whole vehicle. It really does kinda feel like cheating. I can`t believe how easy application is! The looks are outstanding as well! The Carbon was a first as well. BFWD was applied a couple weeks ago so I figured the Zymol carnuba would be a nice topper. I was a little worried about the negative stories I`ve heard regarding difficulty of removal. I experienced no negative results from Carbon. It smells great, spreads evenly and wipes off with ease! I think it looks pretty good too but it was dark by the time I was done. My last Aquapel application was all but dead after 6 months so the windshield and side windows were due. I wanted to go with Opti-Glass this time around but haven`t procured it yet. I guess I`m still waiting on durability reviews? I`ve said it before and I`ll say it again..........You professionals out there get nothing but respect from me.........I`m exhausted and never even plugged in a machine!

    I forgot to add, wheels and tires were cleaned with Mothers Wheel and Tire Cleaner and Daytona`s and other brushes. Tires were dressed with Griot`s Long Lasting Tire Dressing and wheels were sealed with WDGLS.

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    Yesterday I finally got going on my spring detail and got the car washed and got a start on polishing. Today I tried to finish polishing up to the point the GG 6" orange polish pad exploded but at least I was just about done. I was using Meg`s Ultimate polish and it just didn`t seem like it was cutting my towel marks so I need to find something better, I didn`t get them all out but was able to remove the finer ones but have some heavier ones that wouldn`t come out. It sure seems like they go in easier then I can get them out. With the polishing done I was able to get a coat of BFWD on and I like the ease of application and removal and seems it to have left a nice finish. Too tired to move it out of the garage to check it out. Since I also bought BFCS I am going to put a coat of that on top of the BFWD tomorrow just to see the outcome. I also still have wheels, tires and wheel wells to go yet and will do that tomorrow also. I think I will do the interior another day as I think I will be too pooped to even attempt it.

    I like using the GG 6" with a 5" backing plate & Lake Country 5" flat pads.
    Megs Ultimate Compound has a more aggressive cut than Ultimate Polish.
    Be sure & follow Megs UC with LC orange with Megs UP & a LC white pad.
    If that does not "cut it" then I`d suggest a more aggressive Megs polish.

    Let us know your results.

    Thanks for the info. I will have to give Meg`s UC a try or maybe even something else it will be later this summer though. It looks as though I need to get an order together since I need at least 1 or 2 new pads and some other polish or compound. Yeah, thought I had spent enough already!

    Thanks,

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    Yesterday a guy I know that has a mechanic shop up the street wanted me to clean up his 97 Z71. No paint correction, but wanted it clean, but it hasn`t been washed in probably a year. I swear I`ve never seen as much mud the the fenderwell linings as this one. My driveway looked like a muddy drive after I was. He was happy with it and even tipped me (rare for people in my area). Now he wants me to do his sons boat and truck. Not looking forward to the boat.
