Thanks mate. I am going to keep adding moroe and more bits and pieces when i get the chance. Hopefully it helps a few people going forward as i now know there is alot more people getting interested in how they look after the paintwork on there cars aswell as the rest of it.Tomo! said:Some good tips man, not alot of people know about the two bucket method!
I just made the change to sheepskin mitt this year and am loving the change. So much easier to wash and like you say, you dont have to be forcefull. Good tip about the drying method aswell, i used to use a chamois but now use a drying towel, its so tempting to just sweep the towel along but i have scratched the car doing this, patting is a good idea.
Another good one mate is when the car is still wet spray Meguiars final touch dab dry with your waffle weave then go over with a few clean micro fibres the Finnish is superbryan. said:I have found that if your car is polished and waxed you dont need to keep waxing it obviously but you will suffer from water marks even if you dry it. To get rid of these once the car is dry go over it with something such as megs quick detailer. Its works brilliantly in getting rid of the marks
The last thing i would do mate is use any brush at any petrol station thats the worst thing for damaging paintwork on your car.scuzzle said:My only good tip is for the garage jetwash, when the buzzer goes for the last few seconds of pre wash with the lance turn it onto the head of the brush and blast that for a few seconds. Loads of people just throw the brush onto the deck so blasting it with the lance gets rid of any bits if grit you would just be dragging along your paintwork.
