    Default praying at the Temple of Ed Taylor

    so a few weeks back had the pleasure of going up to see Ed ( ) i thought till i got there. then after my return i had this feeling of complete inadequacy my detailing skills left a lot to be desired. so i let those feeling mull around in my head for a week or two. and trying to formulate a cunning plan. so cunning you could stick a tail on it and call it a weasel
    so off to work on my baby i go. started off with engine and all the shuts decreased and washed out. then moved to the arches. each arch in turn had TFRed and jetted out followed off with a good mitt clean of all the arches. doing the wheels as i go. with all the real dirty stuff done.
    moved to do the interior of the car. been promising myself a full interior clean since stopping smoking. as still fag ash and the smell lingers. so every thing came out and was wiped with CC APC. mats were wet vac. all interior plastics wiped and dressed with non glossy dressing. all put back together and already starting to love the car again.and shows off my new blue LEDs including in the Parrot
    then i went to work polishing the door shuts. for this i used the Smartwax ONE product. worked perfectly. so that's the inside done. wanted to sort out the wheels and give them a bit of protection. Jet seal 109 followed off with rim wax. and dressed the tyres and arches
    then did my usual wash with snow and two bucket method. dried off and then give a quick polish and wax. I'm loving the Smartwax product at the moment. happy days

    thanks for all the comments guys, and rich the reason why your getting the swirls is due to the way you wash and how often. ill sort your swirls butt you got to wash better. get a snow head and a jet wash over a mop
