    Default Valentines Day Clean and Wax.

    Lump, popped over to my house this morning, (nice to have met up with you at last). Pleasure to have met you. I was giving the second love of my life ( my motor) a bit of TLC. Larisa will have to wait untill she comes home from work for her,s.
    Lump brought some of his products to try. we did a bit of a test on various wax,s, after we had cleaned the paint then polished it with products from a company called Smart Wax. I was very impressed with how easy they went on and came off. We compared Three wax,s
    Chemical Guy,s 50/50.
    Smart Wax ( not too sure of the name, but Lump will put me right).
    P21S.
    The Smart Wax went on very easy. But the CG.50/50 seemed to come of easier.
    Lump sugested that I try the CG jetseal 109 sealent on the wheels. It will be interesting to see how it fairs againt "proper" wheel sealent.
    Lump had not tried the P21S but it did seem to have the very same Characteristics as the other Two. It will be interesting to see how they all fair. If they get the chance to stay on long enough before I give it a going over again.
    Lump said he had not seen a car so well looked after. I showed him how clean under the wheel arch,s were. He siad this will so you how good they are and ran his fingers around the lip on the outside of the rear wheel arch. I better not repeat his reply when he had NO dirt on his fingers. I said you think that is clean............ Look at the engine bay then. He shook my hand and said I give up that is absolutly amazing. I have never seen a car so well looked after. No doubt we will have another Detailing Day soon. But here are some photo,s of todays work.

    They in my opinion went on and came off easier than the Collinite. But I doubt it if they are as durable. I know the P21S isn,t. it gives probably a better wet look shine, but will not last as long as Collinite. P21S is very good for the summer months. But not the winter. My summer favorite so far has to be Victoria Concours Wax. It takes some beating on Star Silver.
