    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    Finally able to give it a kinda-proper wash today. Initial rinse was looking a bit sketchy, diminished beading on sides below beltline had me a bit concerned.

    Gyeon Foam at 1:5 followed by bucket wash with Gyeon Bathe took off all the accumulated film/salt/brine of the past 2 months/3500 miles nicely and order was restored...just in time for today`s impending blizzard. Nice to see that the coating is holding up well, it`s been a nasty, foul, messy, salty winter so far, worst December in recent memory

    Looks good. How do you like gyeon foam? Is it strong enough to help with removing road grime say for a decon wash down the road?

    I like Gyeon Foam. General use I go with 1:10 or 1:15 and get some nice, aqueous, clinging foam but for circumstances like yesterday, i went 1:4 and it worked as well as could be expected given recent conditions of paint surface. There was sooo much salt and brine on surface that shutting a door would knock some loose and explode it in a cloud of salt dust inside the car. It did loosen the surface contamination enough that not much pressure at all was required to clean surface after foaming (Gyeon Bathe) but it was not quite as smooth as a summer wash.

    What did you do detailing wise today?

    Decon wash of my new Van with 3D BDX, clayed with Nanoskin fine clay mitt and Griots Speed Shine, no polishing was needed, sealed with Duragloss 601 and FK1000P, and sealed trim & glass with Opti-Seal...

    Cleaned the front and rear glass of dad`s car and this is what was on my applicator from the rear glass.



    Also cleaned up his carpets with the driver side carpet being the dirtiest. Optimum Fabric Cleaner & Protectant is good stuff.







    Used this on them afterwards to use it up.



    Gave Bathe Essence a try today as well.

    Finally had some decent weather, so got to wash the car. Much needed. A rinseless wasn’t going to cut it, so I went up the street to a coin op. Only 7 minutes away, closer than I’d thought- will have to go on a regular basis.

    Also, finally broke open my can of soft 99 king of gloss and used it for the first time. Best smelling wax I’ve ever used!

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    Assembling a PW gun & lances, upgrade. With QCs
    What a workout ! Mainly because I didn`t have the best tools only some adjustable wrenches and 1- 50yr old open end.



    12" & 18" lances, MTM. SG35 for the soft pull trigger with a Mosmatic swivel



    Monster blue thread taped



    This giant wrench came in handy on the Mosmatic swivel, for the length for leverage just to get it close to torqed. WHEW!



    A swivel at hose to machine end, as well.

    The rain was in central Texas. But it left earlier so probably headed your way soon.
