    Default someone with a bit of knowhow

    hi all, going to be detailing my car for the meet next week. and i have chosen my arsenal of products. i would just like to confirm with someone if this process would be about right.

    1, wash car with 2 bucket method - "dont have a jet wash"
    2, clay car with maguires smooth surface clay kit
    3, wash car with 2 bucket method
    4, turtlewax blackbox pre cleaner liquid stuff
    5, poorboys blackhole glaze
    6, turtlewax blackbox carnauba wax

    so, would this sound ok. or am i getting things mixed up? i have had very good results with the blackbox kit so thought of trying to improve the finish with putting blackhole inbetween.

    cheers for the input

    that sounds good to me, dont bother drying after the 1st wash, the wetter the better when you clay.

    the poorboys can go under wax or sealant.

    good luck.

    megs tyre endurance is the best if you haven't got any - buy a 99p sponge cut it in half and use it as a cheap applicator - job done.

    cut it in half again - trim applicator...lol

    in half again and you've got......... a really small sponge.
