Detailed my mate's car

So I detailed my mate's Commodore on the weekend. Partially because he'd asked me to since he's broken his foot, and partially because I wanted to test out some new AutoGlym products I got in the post the other day.

Process was:

-Wash with AutoGlym Car Shampoo&Conditioner
-3M blue claybar, AutoGlym Shampoo as lubricant
-Under bonnet and wheels cleaned with Driven Multi (one glug to 8L of water)
-Meguires Hot Shine Tyre shine
-AutoGlym Glass Polish on windows
-AutoGlym Resin Polish (Left overnight before buffing off)

Before






After










So how do you think I did?

Yes you should. I know you want a paint job soon(ish) but after you've done somethin glike this you may decided you don't need the repaint just yet. If you've never used one before the 3M blue clay is a good start - it's mild and soft to the touch. Wash the car first then rub the claybar all over the bodywork. Keep it lubricated (water is NOT a lubricant! I like to use the carwash soap) and knead the bar regularly (just turn it over in your fingers until you have a clean side). Remember that once you've clayed the car you will have to polish it as you've just taken away all the protection to the paint.

So did I. I think I was just a bit lazy when cleaning the wheels out.

Re: Detailed my mate's car

great work Colin, that's a serious improvement! I know I've said this many times before but Clay bar is amazing!
I've never used car shampoo though, I always use detailer, Maguires Speed Detailer is my favourite and it smells really nice too

Re: Detailed my mate's car

Thanks for the comments all.

I think shampoo is just their fancy name for car wash soap TBH. I did also use a quik deailer on this (which I forgot to post up the top), used Driven Quik Detailer. While it can't beat the meguires one on smell, IMHO it's a far better product.

Re: Detailed my mate's car

I've never heard of driven quik detailer, I haven't seen it in any of the car shops around here either so I presume they don't sell it here but being honest I've only used 2 detailers before and I liked the speed detailer the best so stuck with that
