    Was contacted by a repeat customer from DW AKA (MOB) to carry out an enhancement detail on his recently purchased Jeep Cherokee, we maybe carrying out a full correction on the car once winter has been and past. Mark had viewed the car prior to his purchase and all looked well, but after getting the vehicle home and washing the car over the weekend. The sun came out and revealed lots of buffer trails and swirling, most probably because the filler polishes used by the dealer had dropped back. Having worked on Marks cars before and seeing how mint he keeps his them, I was not surprised that he was less than impressed with the dealer prep on his new toy.

    So on to the detail, pretty chilly start to the day Mark arrived at 8.30 as planned and we got started.

    On arrival












    So firstly starting on the wheel arches with G101 and Vikan brush.



    While I was doing the arches Julian made a start on the wheels with smart wheels and Envy brushes for the faces.



    And EZ brush for the insides.



    G101 was used again on all the doors shuts and agitated with Envy brushes.



    Lower half of the vehicle sprayed with citrus degreaser.



    And arches just for good measure



    Then thoroughly rinsed.







    Warm snow foam applied and left to dwell for approx 5 mins.







    Thoroughly rinsed and then foamed again and washed 2BM with sonus lambs wool mitt and Megs shampoo plus.



    Which left us with this.



    Moved inside and clayed while wet with Sonus green clay, with little very contamination to speak of to be far.



    Paintwork all dried off with leaf blower and microfibre towels, PTG gauge measurements taken and a thorough inspection of the paintwork.

    The enhancement of the paintwork then commenced using Megs 205 via the metabo, remember this is only a 1 stage machine polish to enhance and refine the finish and remove those buffer trails inflicted by the dealership.



    A few before and afters.

    Time started getting away from us a bit so we had to fast forward a bit, Julian had followed behind me wiping the panels down with IPA and then applied Zaino AIO via the Megs G220 on a blue 3M waffle polishing pad.

    Whilst I went around and de-tared the wheels with Tardis and applied the first of 2 coats of Zaino Z2 to the wheels.



    Next was the 1st application of Zaino Z5.



    Whilst the 1st coat was curing I went around treating the exterior glass with the Carlack sealant system, dressed the tyres with AS highstyle. A second coat of Z2 was applied and removed once cured.

    Afters













































    As always thanks for taking the time to look

    Neil

    Excellent work once again.....

    For those of us doing our regular washes at home, what would you recommend we dry the cars off with when just doing a weekly wash (ie no polishing / correction)?

    You will probably disagree with my methods but I do the following:

    make the car is thoroughly rinsed and that there is a lot ofwater on teh car.

    Wet an Autoglym silicone blade throughly. Wipe through my fingers to remove any contaminants that could cause scratching. Thoroughly wet it again.

    Wipe over horizontal panels (roof bonnet and boot with the blade very quickly and only if there is a lot of surface water to ensure the blade is lubricated and doesn't scratch (never had a scratch with careful use like this despite people claiming that they cause damage).

    Wet and wring out a Vileda Flunky synthetic chamois (very cheap and miles better than a natural leather or a Megs water magnet). and carefully go over the whole car ensuring the Flunky is moist but not wet all times.

    How would you do it and with what equipment?

    Cheers

    Thanks Rob

    Well your right I would disagree with that method

    Once I have completed the wash stage I always use these towels for the drying stage http://www.i4detailing.co.uk/acatalo...g_Towel_1.html

    They are ultra soft and you can also use a detail spray to help the drying aid, by spraying the detail spray over the wet panel.

    This helps in 2 ways:

    Firstly it helps to lubricate the surface so the drying towel will glide a little easier and cause less chance of marring the paintwork.

    Secondly it will help to leave a smear free finish.

    I also use a leaf blower to get all the water out of any gaps as well and then go over removing the water that has been forced out of the gaps, can appreciate that not everyone has a leaf blower to hand. And you are at risk of getting some funny looks from your neighbors

    Drying blades can cause damage even if you keep the blade as clean as you can and keep wiping after each panel etc, there is still the bigger risk that dust can blow onto the car and sit there on the wet panel. And then you drag the drying blade across the panel pick up the dust which gets trapped between the blade and the bodywork and the inevitable happens.

    It really doesn't take much to cause damage with a drying blade and the defects they cause can sometimes extremely hard to remove, I have seen the results from this many times.

    Hope that helps.

    Neil.

    Thanks for that Neil. I've often wondered how I should be drying my car. I think maybe it's time to invest in a leaf blower!

    On a serious note: I'll deffinately try adding a bit of detail spray at the drying stage as I often find the car dries too quickly preventing the drying cloth from moving smoothly over the paint.
