    Default Summer cleaning

    Ok now the sun is trying to come out, I was wondering what everyone does in the summer months cleaning wise.

    Do you full detail once then, just wash every week and re apply wax?

    Full detail every time?

    What is your summer month ritual?

    Basicaly just this. Car was fully polished and waxed this week, will polish again in the middle of the summer then polish again about October just prior to winter. I tend to wax my car on a weekly basis, after washing and drying anyway.

    Evening mate, Might look into that, how often are you applying that? I take it after you have waxed?

    V7 is similar to a detailing spray so can be applied at any time ,i have just put on a coat of v7 after a quick wash down this morning after the weekends driving , but its a little expensive if your going to use it all the time this way better to use something like reglaze if you just doing a post wash glaze over .

    You guys put me to shame. I wash my car once a week....

    Luckily it had a good polish etc from the garage I bought it from so its still shiny.

    I normally only wax my cars twice a year though.
