The car was filthy, and reading zoran's detailing thread had got me in the mood. I had already picked up all my bits from a month or so ago. So today, attempted my first 'detail'. In that it was my first attempt, other than just a wash n polish. So my routine was: Rinse-Wash-Rinse using 2 bucket method Clay-Wash-Rinse-Dry Wheels washed-wheels sealed-tyres dressed Polished-Buffed Sealant applied Whilst waiting for the sealant to cure, attacked the interior (vacuumed, seats dressed, mats washed, new air freshener!) Buffed the sealant to finish. 5 hours later, my back is finished. To top it off the mrs said why i didn't just take it to the local european gaff!! All products used were Autoglym. First time using them, and i'm really impressed.
