The car has been buffed up to what I would be called ordinary and others might call gleaming.

The lawn has been cut and looks rather nice.

I have sat out under a cloudless sky -- Arizonian -- with a bottle of Pinot Grigio -- and look forward to a couple of grilled lamb chops served with sliced runner beans and Jersey Royals.

Nice to be retired -- sometimes!

Regards

Peter

Hi Wat, 

There are some members who use the clay bar for preparation,  but I had my car detailed with a paint protection, and basically I just need warm water and a good shampoo.

It is supposed to act three years and in June I will be giving my car a good days cleaning and a good treatment  for the winter.  The Jury is still out on what precess I will use!

Regards,

Peter.

Sounds great, Peter, has been a lovely day.

ive mowed the lawns, taken the pooch for a run and assisted the better half with a full house detailing session !

Going to give Tigger a full body detailing tomorrow weather permitting, along with adding self adhesive velour to internal plastic areas in the cabin.

Regards

Andrew

Hi Walter,

I'm just adding a few things that you can think of.

Before you start applying a good paint protecting product, you really need to make sure the car is very clean - i.e. all the road grime which you can't see has been got rid of.  Start off by running your hand along the sills of your car and if it is not as smooth as silk you will need to use a product -- and there are quite a few -- to get it smooth.  I use a spray [which was part of a detailing pack I won on a meet] with which you also need to use that easily available product known as elbow grease.

The clay bar has the same effect in that it removes the grime rather than polishing the car.  When that is done there are a lot of polishes that are available --  Autoglym and Regulars are both well respected as is Gliptone.   Many detailers use products which include Carnauba wax.

If you google Redguard Auto Spa -- member of the JOC some good advice will be at hand too.

Hard work but the final result is worth it.

Regadrs

Peter.

Trouble with being retired is that you don't get a day off.
