Made the most of the sun today....

What I did today..... Snow foamed dry and left for 15 minutes. Jet washed off and then washed with meguiars gold class, (still need 2 buckets for the 2 bucket method.... After washing I dried the car and then de-tarred best I could. Once that was done, used a quick meguiars detailer with a clay bar. Still need to buy a swirl mark remover and other finishing polishes so waxed with meguiars Nxt generation wax today. Finished the wheels with meguiars tyre gel.

Is paintwork guarantee for 6 years with Honda as I've noticed under the passenger mirror that the laquer is starting to peel.

Cheers mate. Still notice imperfections though. Really bugs me. Never used to be in this detailing business until I saw on here what results you can gain. Lol

Milano is a pain, I need a full paint correction as the previous owner loved the local "hand wash"

Feel your pain mate. Just not enough time in the week to do these things. The only problem with today is the sunlight but if it wasn't sunny then it would be raining so would have no chance! Lol

Great work.

You should try Snap seal instead of clay bar. It also de-tars and remove it with naviwax.
