    Well, hello members! It's nice to finally be back and posting. I've really missed doing this! Some may remember this vehicle from a previous review and detail last winter. This one only done twice a year when the owner comes home from college and to tell you the truth, I dread doing it. The carpet is worst. Short pile that holds everything in it. Takes me about 2 hours to thoroughly vacuum it out. Oh well. At least the paint is rewarding. The wheels were pretty rough this time. The brake pads were changed out and the new ones dust like crazy and then sticks like glue. Ok ok.............here's the full process!!!!

    Wash Cycle:
    (Foamed via foam gun and NXT Tech Wash. Final wash with DP's Four in One.)
    Very dirty. Came clean. Just some minor claying on the hood and deck lid.

    Engine Bay:
    (Purple Power for cleaning and Armor All Tire Foam for protection)
    I even gave the valve cover a coat of wax!!!

    Wheels and Tires:
    (Tires/Wells cleaned with Purple Power. Wheels with Surf City's Wheel Cleaner.)
    The wheels were awful. This new wheel cleaner did a pretty nice job. Wheel Brightener is a little stronger but SC's boasts safe on any wheel and I believe it. No harsh smell and seemed mild on my bare hands. A pretty good deal in an all around wheel cleaner.
    Take a look........

    Paint Correction:
    Menzerna's PO106ff
    (Applied via UDM and EDGE2K Yellow pad at a #5 speed)
    Simply an amazing product. Well worth the money and the dusting. Removes just about everything defect on a single pass. It leaves the finish "squeaky" clean and ready for your LSP. Simply the best out there in my opinion. Yeah is dusts. So? It worked well in the sun too. It's pretty much my go-to polish for all finishes now.

    Paint Protection:
    Surf City's Barrier Reef Carnauba Wax
    (Applied via UDM and EDGE2K White pad at a #3 speed)
    Went on easily and came off the same. Nice glossy finish. Pretty decent depth too. I think there's a good value here for those looking for a good wax. This detail is about a month old and the owner talked to me yesterday and said is still beaded well when it rained. I like to here that!!!

    Interior:
    Various products were used........
    Surf City's Glass cleaner
    (One of the best for glass that I've EVER used! No streaks.......even in full sun!)
    DP's Interior Protectant
    FOLEX Carpet cleaner

    Befores.............

    Very nice work. I must be doing something wrong with 106FF. I use it with a rotary and a white LC CCS pad and quite frankly I cannot get it to finish out very well. And you are using it via UDM, interesting. I dont mind the UDM it just takes so much damn time.

    Any advice for use with rotary from anyone?
