    I caved in and did the wheel barrels and fender wells. And engine bay, trim and tires. At least its proper in case it doesn`t rain.

    It only too about 45 minutes. Might not be perfect but at least not as terrible as it looked.

    This winter has not been kind to the vehicles! It stopped raining so I figure I`d do a quick wash!

    Dirty!

    It`s better! Not 100%, but when it warms up it needs a further in-depth detail.

    I gave the van a quick wash and interior blow-out in the rain this afternoon, with a 100-percent chance of rain tomorrow.

    Nuts, I know, but there was black grit stuck on the van and with all the rain we have forecast for my area, I didn`t want to look at the grit that long.

    High-pressure hose busted after four years of gentle use. It`s the MTM Hydro blue hose (single braid), and I was a little disappointed to see the hose give up so soon.

    Sprayed down the car at the coin-op. Washed it with ECH2O. Topped with Quartz Max. Tires with Q2M Preserve.

    Clean...er.

    Cant wait until I can hook up the hoses and do a proper foam and 2BW.

    Finally stopped raining! Mild afternoon. Spent some quality time with the Xterra and got some fresh air in the lungs. Good interior and wash. Tires got a good cleaning and a fresh coat of Gtechniq tire. Had plenty of DP glass coating left, so coated all exterior glass, mirrors, head and tail lamps. Took some time, but well worth it. Glass looks amazing. And now I know it`s protected for a good long time. Finished with Trademark Extender spray wax. Used it after the vehicle was dry this time. WOW! I do like it as a drying aid but doing a traditional dry application really show cases this wax. Great finish with no issues. Very easy. DONE.

    Cleaned up both black beauties this weekend. Wolfgang Uber Rinseless for both followed by my Blue Juice mix as a wipe down.

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    I washed the van today and made sure to do a good job with wheels, tires, and wells. We`d been getting a lot of rain lately and I`d been washing just the wheels with a boar`s hair brush, not barrels, tires, and wells.

    I used my pressure washer but didn`t do a foam presoak because it was already pretty clean from just having been washed on Sunday or Monday. Like Accumulator, I just rinsed it off before getting down to business. I used the foamer to provide my soap (a mixture of two ounces of BLACKFIRE Car Wash and an ounce of BLACKFIRE Foam Booster) and a Microfiber Madness Incredipole as wash media. Car Wash and Foam Booster require more mixing than I`m willing to do. The booster seems to separate a little and I end up with the world`s most perfect foam at the end of the wash.

    I mix by adding Car Wash and Foam Booster together in a three-ounce measuring cup and then pouring it into the foam bottle, which is already filled with hot water. I then put a cap on the bottle and shake it vigorously for thirty seconds or so. The injector is then attached and I`m foaming within two minutes. Fortunately, Car Wash foams well enough on its own.

    Then I dressed my tires with BLACKFIRE Tire Gel using Optimum`s Opti-Gun (mixed about 3:1). That`s the best smell I`ve ever smelled in my life. Tire Gel doesn`t smell very strong when applying it normally, but when using compressed air, more of it is diffused into the air and the smell soothes my soul.

    Made a cushy mouse pad
    This acc/ag DMT knockoff scratched my car (crappy stitching) so it`s been an eye glasses towel for almost two years
    Now repurposed as a wrist saving mouse pad cushion

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    Just a had time and energy for a few small things.
    My detail chair had a red plastic tool tray that has always pissed me off, so a
    3$ hack saw, and off it came.. YES!


    Tried some new products, first up... Dr B. spray wax
    Did not like this, like taking a hot candle and splattering wax on the hood.
    Smeary, stuck on mess, Yuck! Off the balcony it goes!



    Luck was with me. I got this 4oz. freebie of Jay Leno`s QD.
    Tried that over the smeared Dr. B.
    It was spectacular ! Easy to wipe, almost evaporating as I went, scent of orange Tang and sick slick. Put Jay`s on the drivers door and BSD on pass. Jay`s was much slicker and easier to apply. I love it also because was able to use it on my Nissan paint and my black Chevy. BSD smears on the Chevy.
    Well off to order some JLQD

    I have the same chair/stool. The tray is way to big. It was always biting the back of my ankles.

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    Brought a new car car home today. Told the dealer to leave the plastic on it. Pulled the plastic off when I got home, heading out again in a bit to get a wipe down and a coat of wax on it and get that interior dressed. Been eyeing one of these for a while now. Wanted red but getting one with the red interior is impossible. And the more I look at it, this car looks REALLY sharp in blue.
