    What did you do detailing wise today?

    In the spirit of the Kuhuna and seems to be a popular ongoing topic on AGO, I will start this thread here. This gives everyone something a chance to post.

    Yesterday, I washed the wife`s car with Optimum Car Wash, dried with the Master Blaster, and cleaned the jambs with CG speed wipe.

    For today, I plan to add a spray wax (the BFWD is not sheeting as well on the sides), apply Ultima to the trim, clean the glass, and vacuum it out.

    I also want to get the truck washed before it rains in the afternoon. It will sit in the garage for several days.

    I also checked the tire pressures. They were down 2 psi due to the weather change.

    Had to work all day yesterday so today will be bit busy. A maintenance wash + interior, 2 wash & wax and write up a lot of reviews I am delinquent on. (Warning given to Biggerest Kahuna contestants. ) I`m guessing the star will be the new Pinnacle Liquid Souveran.

    my truck wasn`t in too bad of shape, so i gave it a good wipe down yesterday with my eimann fabrik clear pearl II and a follow up spray down with eimann fabrik high gloss acrylic shield. i hit it again this morning with an additional coat of the high gloss acrylic shield. i haven`t seen any more eimann fabik supplies for awhile now, but they did make some some very good products that had some very advanced properties.

    Friday I got off to a late start. Washed my Pathfinder using Sonax Soap and a Montana Boars Hair Brush on the extent able pole. AG just replaced the last pole that broke, stuck this one in the bucket and the tip slid right off the end of the pole - set it aside and got a broom handle pole. Later I fixed it with epoxy.

    Of course while drying the car, it started to drizzle. So, I packed up some supplies and went to the coin op car wash for some shelter (other car was clean and in the garage). There I went over it again with CG Speed Wipe Anti Static Detailer. Then added another coat of Bilt Hamber Finis.

    It rained again over night so I wiped the car down again with the new Pinnacle Waterless Wash With Carnuba the next day. Also, had some time to kill so I put a coat of Rim Wax on the wheels even they are OptiCoated - although I`m not sure the OC is still there.

    Then Fed Ex came and brought me a box from Chemical Guys. I got some Mr Pink, Sticky Wheel Cleaner, 4" Self Centering Hex Logic Pads, and spray bottles. Later that day I came across someone selling new pots of BFMS and CG Pete`s 53 and picked that up as well.

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    Yesterday I woke up at 5AM, drove a couple hundred miles, then 2-stepped and Opti-Coated a 328xi, checked into my room at 8:30PM. Today I`ll be doing a few wash n wax type jobs on a CTS-V, 840ci, and X3 if time allows.

    Last week I started a correction on a `68 911L in original paint, which will get finished next week.

    Woke up at 5:30 am, soaked G37 in BF Waterless, wiped down and sprayed BF polymer spray.

    DP Krystal for the windows. No time for tires.

    I love these temps. No water spots when washing outside and you don`t sweat.

    I washed my mom`s car. It was a complete mess from tree sap and other dirt. Looked great but as soon as I put it back in her driveway it started getting sap on it again.

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    I ended up not washing the truck but I did apply a coat of Mothers Spray Wax to the wife`s car, applied Ultima to the dark trim, vacuumed the inside, and cleaned the glass.I also vacuumed my car.

    In the process, I noticed the line cord retainer to Metro (the plastic clamp that holds the line cord) was not holding the cable so I repaired that....at least for now. The clamp uses friction to hold so the clamp may be bad.

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    Today nothing but reading any new posts here on the forum. I actually did mine Friday after work. Since it is to cold now outside to wash, just above freezing here, I went to the car wash washed car and dried it inside since no one was waiting. Then went home and parked it in the garage and turned on the torpedo heater and warmed the garage up, carried in the wet towels and got the QD and more clean towels and went to town on the car. Cleaned the interior and glass. Since the TPMS showed the tires were low on all four corners I fired up the compressor and topped off the tires. Cleaned some of the dust from under the hood and trunk, got tired and went inside. The End!
