Ready to detail...



Part of my mission during the next few weeks while getting my new stuff installed is to get the Mustang ready for two photoshoots. One during the evening, at my lake photoshoot, and the other with a bridge in the background for the night shoot.

My God have mercy on my forearms.

i can wear out three people before I run out of steam when it coms to car detailing but usually it only takes me 2 hours to have a 100% detailed car starting with a nasty dirty car.

lol basically its a car cleaner that has no teflons or silicon components, will never hurt the paint no matter how much you use it.

They state if you use it twice to three times a year on your paint before it starts to fade it will never fade. It keeps paint from oxydizing which red loves to show.

It can be applied directly to a dirty nasty car with out scratching the paint (of course it has to get to the paint... so caked on mudd or rocks all over the car are not good so get that off, for a car that you dont take off road i have yet to need to clean it off before application of the product)

You can refill the bottles and via the design so one bottle can be refilled over and over via a 32oz refill bottle for instance.

It repels dust up to 50% over all other products, amazing for black cars but it will still build up just takes longer.

You take two terry towels, both 100% cotton of course, use one to apply and one to buff, you can also use a micro fiber towel, they buff amazingly!

You basically pick an area of the car and buff it on as you normally would a wax for instance. Then after you have gone over the area have another towel and buff it clean, do this for each area on the car.

It can be done directly in the sun and you can do the whole car if you wish and then go back over it and buff it off, it doesnt get hard if its left on the car, you just simply wipe her off... no matter if its 2 months later it comes off.

It goes on windows and cleans them EXTREMLY good it also goes on black chrome, car trim and rubber.

It wont fade the plastic peices like wax, it keeps it from fading also, just spray it on the towel and then apply due to the peice by the wiper blades has little depressions all in it, this way it wont get down in them and you cant wipe it off.

In between applications, two weeks, a month, two months however long you can take a spray bottle of water, I perfer distilled when its hot outside due to it dries with no spots usually, spray an area buff and dry just as you did when applying the cleaner, of course with water you cant do it in the sun it dries to fast, at least on a black car... so do this in the shade.

It goes on chrome rims and metal also... basically any non-pourous surface (little grooves that you cant wipe it out of)

Its good stuff I love it, put it this way I got the car brand new and only have used this stuff. I decided to clay bar the whole car and the clay bar did JACK the paint was to damn clean... it doesnt build up and keeps the car so damn smooth it beeds up 10x better than a fresh wax job and i NEVER use my wiper blades unless its just barly misting....

This is why I can totaly detail my whole car in an hour, I use this or water spray and area and then buff it on and then buff it off... do this for every inch of the outside of the car then I use a tire shine if you will.

read the FAQ at least it has alot of good questions and answers about the product. I can tell you what is really true and what not also if you have questions. There are probably dealers in your area since you cant buy this at a store, as zaino is also.

My aunt and uncle are dealers and I am also but I dont sell it to people I just buy a box for a year lol. I did the math I spend 2 bucks a month on cleaner~ and you know how it looks from pics.

any good quality stuff works great its just the time it takes, wax is great for cars that need upkeep and something abrasive its all good as long as you use good quality stuff, i just really like this stuff.

I don't know. I like putting the wax on the applicator, rubbing a panel in small circle, letting it kinda dry, and then taking a clean towel and rubbing the the oposite direction.

wax in the opposite direction you wash the car in to help remove feather scratches, if you wanted to do it all from the base up wash with dawn detergen, then rubbing compound every inch of the car twice, then clay bar the car after another dawn detergent bath then wax it 3 or 4 times from head to toe.

you cant just wipe down a black car in a couple minutes and let it dry on its on unless you want a worse looking car than before you started, you have to dry EVERY inch OVER AND OVER or you get waterspots, which you will get regardless thus i hate washing with water....
