want their car cleaned? lol!

My collection is growing into an obsession since I spent a couple of days with a mobile detailing business Very Happy . Some of my collection contains bad products but they are useful sometimes...looking at replacing them with better all round products in the future eg more waxes, better glass sealants etc. I have now started building up a small collection but I still need some more such as iron-x, G101, magifoam etc which are being ordered Very Happy.






I need some more detailing brushes - work had some and threw them all away! :censored::censored::censored:
Just waiting on my paint gauge to arrive now and then I will order the rest.

Starting to worry about where I am going to put it all! lol!

by the way that tyre silk doesn't get used it is simply left over from years ago...the bottle next to it - dilute to suit is the tyre cleaner/gloss.

Get yourself some chemical guys & dodo products then you'll see it's not a patch on any of the ^^

Give the sticky t (jcw adventures detailing thread composed by me) a read as some excellent tips & advice in there & how I learnt & made the change it's located at the top of the cleaning section of the forum.

Really? I go on detailing world regularly and the serious performance range is highly rated Smile.
Also on my list is chemical guys sticky wheel cleaner, maxi suds and thier wheel sealent. Dodo Juice products are also on my list - Thier range of waxes, clay and lube etc.
I guess most of its down to personal preference but also seen that people think products such as bilberry are great and then the hype calms down - you can end up with junk, thats the only problem with recommendations. Its such an expensive hobbie but this is only the start of how mine will end up. Also looking at the Auto Finesse range Smile


thanks118 - Ian? lol!

I was attacking my car with the DA polisher and detailing gizmos on Friday. The rain arrived and the car was moved into the secret workshop.



I've also been out buying some wheel cleaner and new brushes today. Bloody detailing, it's keeping me away from fixing the bike! Wink

I bought some more cleaning stuff in Tesco, Robert Dyas and Halfrauds so far this week. Dinky is locked away in the secret workshop until the weekend as she has been clayed, DA machine polished and waxed. Just the trim work, glass, tyres, wheels and interior left to do.....

There is another Yuasa 12v battery on the way for a '93 Ducati Monster as well.... Laughing
