    Default Lads Detailing Day

    Phil (fil4822) popped over to my place today, for another Lads detailing day.
    This is what we did to our motors.
    My process first.
    Snow foamed the car and wheels.
    Cleaned and clayed the wheels.
    Washed the car then clayed it. With Sonax "gray" clay.
    Washed again, Then dried.
    Polished with Megs#80 then
    Polished with Megs#82 followed by a coat of
    KP1000 sealent lastly
    Two coats of Migliore Original Grand.
    The black trim was coated in Black Wow.
    Under the whell arch,s I gave it a coat of CG Bare bones Undercarriage spray.
    Megs glass cleaner on the windows inside and out.
    LTT protect was used on all the Leather.
    Megs tyre dressing on the tyres.
    The Migliore wax was the most difficult wax I have ever put on and taken off a car. It will be interesting to see how long it lasts. It has brought out a good shine to the paintwork though.

    Phils now.
    Washed and dried.Included the wheels
    Polished with poorboys polish.
    Then a coat of KP1000 sealent.
    glass cleaned with AG glass cleaner
    Tyres dressed with Meg,s tyre dressing.
    All poishing was done with a Porta Cable polisher.

    Now for some photos of this weekends work.















    I hope you enjoyed reading "the lads detailing day".

    Glad things are on the up then Ian. My motor will have to last for a while yet. As you can see Larisa got the "new" motor. Anyway I still need to put some more wax on mine yet...............

    Oi - Watch it Granddad !

    The weather kept dry for us but bloomin' ek, that wind was biting !
    Sorry to have dashed off Ed, but when your neighbor came out with a barrel of soapy water to wash his tractor off and me being 2 feet away from it, well you can see why !


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !
