It's been a while since I posted on here as I've not been as active with our 182 track car, so I thought I'd share with you my new (2015) BMW M4, picked up last week with the below spec -
17k miles, DCT
Yas Marina Blue
BMW Adaptive Headlights /...
Hello chaps, some may recognise the car from a previous detail I carried out for a good friend of mine. It's pretty clean and he really has looked after it washing wise etc after some advice, he's seen a massive difference just by washing it correctly. You'll see from the images the lack of...
Recently had a mate of mine mop my car to bring the paint back up, no idea what he used, i'm not an expert, some sort of Trade Auto Glym stuff. Anyways, here are some photos of it shining after its clean, Enjoy!
Hi all, been a while since I shared a detail with you, but as some of you may have seen in the Focus RS thread, I was called upon to detail a new Focus RS; plan being to lay down some decent protection after a thorough decontamination.
I thought I'd share some photos with you and my thoughts on...
Looking to get a bag holder of some type to use in the boot to hold some of me detailing bits etc,so whats everyone else using?.i have come across these ones so far.
(Not sure if to put in this section or detailing,please amend mods if wrong,thanks)
This stuff is amazing, I was a bit dubious with the price being so high but I love it. In fact I've used it two saturdays on the trot. Amazing stuff, it really is, goes on well, lasts long even machining in the sun. Adds serious depth and shine, not to mention feels amazing too!
Anyway a few...
hey all, I like to make my car look shiny :cool: but with the sunshine being out more, I can see minor swirls, but lots of them, in my bonnet a lot more and its causing me a bit of heartache haha. the question being, is it worth investing in a (budget?) machine polisher (80-120 quid) or just...
Hi all, I'm new to this site, how are you all doing?
I was just wondering if anyone had any advice as I was thinking of setting a detailing business and I have a few ideas on it.
But hey any advice is good and it will all be appreciated.
Thanks guys and girls.
Hi, just bought a RB 197 and was wondering what products would be best for it, I already have Chemical Guys V36 and V38 for the swirls etc. but what glazes and waxes would you guys recommend for it? I've got chemical guys black light already for my previous car, but doubt it would do the same.
It's been years since I've done some proper detailing. Picking up an abarth 500 in record grey on Tuesday and would love to keep it looking good!
What sort of products should I be looking at?
It has diamond cut wheels also, what's best to use on these?
Okay as title, is this the correct way to wash/detail?
Also a few questions at the bottom!
Pretty new to this so hopefully I'm right and learnt from reading off here and other detailing forums!
So here's how I would wash/detail in order.
1. Jet wash: loosen up the dirt, wheels etc.
Just bought an Inferno Orange 182 and it's pitted already. I need a full detailing kit as I have nothing except some microfiber towels.
What would you recommend? I guess anything will do the job well enough but may as well get what is recommended & tested.
Hi guys. My 2006 Saab 9-3 which I use as a daily / workhorse needs a through cleaning.
Does anyone know a decent valeter in (south) Manchester? I am not looking for a super premium / super pricey service, I just need a decent inside / out clean, wax & polish and perhaps minor paint correction...
How do all?
I've been wracking the old nogging on how we could have more of a social meet, rather than sitting in our cars blasting down A and B roads with a few breif stops and chats along the way....let's have a day of good food good times and clean rides.
So, in light of that......how does...
@Yellow Dave I think seen this but they're having a good sale on, especially if you have a local branch to avoid delivery etc, I believe there is a coupon code also to put on top of it.
Lots of Sonax stuff, ectreme wheel cleaner is a great product and people love the quick detailer...
So I've just cleaned my car using some halfords shampoo, lambswool mitt and some microfiber cloths, cane up looking nice but I'm sure it could be better! My question is what else should I buy? I was thinking a Polish and wax to shine and protect it, but need some advice as I'm new to detailing...
What do I need to purchase to get my paintwork looking super from this company, 2 mins away from me. Just want to deswirl and seal/polish.
Any advise would be appreciated (:
I have a s**t loaf of jewel ultra diamond brite products in my...
Over the last month I've been busy detailing a few Porsches at the Porsche Centre in Cardiff and thought there would be interest from some on here in seeing how they went.
First up was this heavily spec'd Mahogany Brown Porsche Cayman S, in need of a single day enhancement detail to liven up...
Hi guys, seems it's been a while since my last detailing thread on here and I thought you'd like to see this recent one.
I was contacted by the owner in the hope to remove a few nasty scratches from the side of the door on this Clio 200 to avoid a costly respray in Liquid Yellow.
I have been cleaning cars for years, trying to make a fiver off my neighbours, only since getting my clio and joining this forum have I become aware of the detailing world. However being 17 and having a Saturday job I don't have the biggest budget to run the clio let alone spend £50 on a pot of...
Hiya guys n gals. Gave the 200 'Donald' a treat with Frost Car Care's range. Epic stuff. :argie:
Gave her a good interior clean then gave some loving under the bonnet, to think it came from a main dealer, terrible state! Frost 360 apc & Dressel were used here.
I then de badged her, quite like no...
can anyone give me a list of essential products to keep my car look clean and shiny I'm 17 and I got my car today so I have no idea apart from knowing I need water shampoo 2 buckets and wax haha! Thanks guys
I got into the whole detailing thing with the Clio and bought a DA, polishes etc until I had so many bottles of stuff and spent so long cleaning the car it was getting a bit annoying!
Having just got a new car which is black, I don't particularly want to spend forever cleaning it but don't want...
Right haha. Really like cleaning the car and to be fair it's pretty good. Theres a few marks and the odd swirl, and i think next year i shall be investing in a DAS 6 pro or a Rupes but i dont think it's necessary yet. Now i already have the snowfoam and stuff and 2 bucket wash etc. I have also...
sorry to post a thread on this but I tryed searching and couldn't really find any answers (unless I was searching incorrectly in which I appologise!)
any how, I'm currently looking at buying a few products and accessories to add to my start up collection.
From research a lot of people...

I have some light overspray on my roof, i have used clay bars before but need something a bit more aggresive,my car is silver with a clear coat, it says it is safe with a clearcoat
any tips would be helpful, would a hand polish and wax be ok after or would it need a machine polish ?
