i just got my free sample from meguiars. what is quick suds? i am guessing that u can just add it to water instead of using the traditional liquid car wax. am i right? do i just add the strip to water, then wash my car with it?
i am going to wash my car tomorrow, so i might use it if some1 else has and says its decent.
did any1 else get theirs yet?
does anyone want to tell me how theywash their car? steps they take?
should i spray the whole car first, then work on cleaning roof, spray that soap off when done washing top, then work on one side, washing that , then rinse it off, ect.? or is there there a better way to do it? i cant do it when the sun is going down, nor can i do it in the morning. the direct sunlight really drys my car fast.
i used to rinse the whole car, then soap everything, then go rinse it off, then dry. by the time i am halfway done sponging/soaping car, the 1st part i had worked on is already drying and i am not working at a snails pace either. speedy
if you do not dry your car proberly after washing it or whatever you will just be waisting your time.
if u really wanta have a nice clean car download the free book from autopia its great and tells you everything u need to know!
edit: oops your talking about just washing not drying sry lol.... but im not deleating what i wrote cause its still a good thing to dry your car properly. but ya a nice woolskin sheep mit would work great for washing.
I aslo just found a great site for MF towels... im cheakin to see if there really good quality or not.. from the looks of it there good... they edges are silk and not stitched so u cant scrach yoru car....
just get a snack and a drink and sit down and read that free e-book. that will tell u everything u will ever need to know.
I have been reading so much im confident that i can do a little wet sanding to my mom's car and make it look nice ( to fix up that damn touchup paint).
you aslo might want to invest in a orbital polisher/buffer. I JUST got mine at lowes for $110. thats the cheapest u can get it. then u gota buy the pads off the internet and thats about 50. its really worth it tho.. u can compare one day with the orbital to about 1-2 months worth of hand polishing/waxing.
edit: once i get everthing i need im going to start deatailing. I'll take some pictures and show ya what i did and what I used. and trust me this car probably have way more swirl marks and scratches that any bimmer! hehe
