2 hours cleaning today

Post by MCDK » Sat May 19, 2018 8:31 pm

Washed and dried the GTS last so today spent another 2 hours cleaning it. And what did I do today for my 2 hours, cleaned only the 4 wheels lol.

Two coats of polish and then a sealant coat. Bit surprised it took so long as they are 21" gloss black classics so pretty easy to clean but they do look great now.

I keep meaning to do that. However today it was a quick wash and about 2 minutes on each wheel. Followed by shopping with the missus and a burger in James Street South.

Yes it's something I have been wanting to do for a while. Best watching the Royal Wedding anyway!

Need to start a big job on the paintwork soon and try put my new DAS6 Pro polisher. Needs done with tar remover and fallout remover first then a run over with the clay bar. Then ready for a polish coat or two followed by some wax on top. That should take up a good few hours some other day or week lol.

Did you get plenty of Anachem freebies then???

I have got a few of their products recently and have not been that excited to be honest. Products are ok but not among the best I have used from other suppliers and the delivery/customer service has been pretty poor. Took 3 weeks to fulfill a pretty simple order between damaged goods and incomplete orders being received.

Thought one of you guys had ceramic coating applied? I know David you have PPF...

I did both - PPF down both lower sides and ceramic coated the entire car - it is a massive improvement for me, nothing sticks to it....

no tar, no dead fly remains, a quick hose and a lot of the work is done....
