Detailing Tip Of The Week

HOW DOES THIS SOUND FOR A THREAD?

PEOPLE CAN POST UP TIPS ON HOW TO USE OR WHAT PRODUCTS TO USE WITHOUT MAYOR DISCUSSION ON DIFFERENCE OF PRODUCTS...JUST TIPS!

HERE IS MINE FOR THIS WEEK....

[Maintianing your wheels finish while mazimizing shine is easy. Start by cleaning wheels first. Applying a quick coat of RIMWAX bi-weekly will help reduce brake dust by 50% while enhancing and maintianing your rim and wheel finishes for years to come.

here's mine;
next time before you wax your ride, take a sandwich bag and put over your hand and rub your paint.if its rough, clay it with a clay and a clay lube. re-wash. then youre ready for wax.

Detailing tip of the week: reason why a microfiber towel has two sides is because one side its for applying a product and the other to buff the product off. that's why always be picky about the towels you buy and what you use them for...

My work speaks for itself. Put any product on in a straight line and take off the same way-NO CIRCULAR MOTIONS

Good stuff. I'm looking to wash, claybar, seal, glaze, and wax my car this coming weekend. I also use several sponges and use two buckets when when washing the car.

I use one bucket (plain water, no soap) to put the sponges in to rinse them out. It doesn't make any sense to take the dirty sponge and dump it in the soapy water. All you're doing is removing grime and putting it back on the car

Obviously the second bucket is just for soapy water.

I use two sponges (sometimes 3 depending on the job). I use one to clean my wheels and another one to wash the body of the car. Once again, using the same sponge for an entire car is a self defeating proposition. I clean the wheels first as they tend to be the dirtiest and it's also to prevent the grime from the wheels getting on the body of the car.

I used to use Black Magic stuff, but since SEMA this past year I've switched over to Mothers.

Detailing tip of the week " when applying dressing to your interior vinyl apply gently as if you did with wax in a circular motion but to reduce it from attracting dust after applying the dressing, simply wipe down with a microfiber towel to give it a fresh look"

detailing tip of the week: "for those that do car shows or just simply want to use no water to clean your rim & tires on the spot, we have a solution...use any citrus base product like carpet cleaner or ________blended with water on the rim & tire, wipe off with a microfiber towel to a perfect clean surface" app...ly more if needed. this process is good on any type of finishes.

detailing tip of the week
"applying carpet cleaner to your carpet floor of your car before vacuuming can assist you in lifting any loose dirt, leaving it cleaner than just vacuuming.

Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.
