2013 caddy detail



  Ph2 Meg 225
When i say detail it may not be upto everyone's standards but still a massive improvement!

anyway, after recently buying a das6 my dad wanted me to see if I could get rid of a few scuff marks, tree scratches etc so I went up yesterday and got an early start. The caddy seemed to be an ex rental vehicle covered in glue marks from the removal of sign writing and had clearly not been cleaned up by the valeters 2 months previous.

Sadly no befores or 50/50s as I was on a tight scale.

Washed with britemax and 2bm
rinsed
iron x
wheels washed
ironx on wheels
agitated and rinsed off
vehicle Clayed with bilthamer auto clay

Waxed with prima epic
trims dressed with af revive
glass cleaned with stoner glass cleaner and repellant
arches dressed with some cheap tyre gloss I can't recall

not bad for a workhorse, total time was around 8 hours just a few deeper marks remain which need more work another time.

any tips recommendations on my process would be helpful! All I can think of is a tar remover to add in which is on the shopping list.

Thanks

Looks great, like really good. Did you not apply tar remover before claying? The clay bar must've been minging!

Cheers, yeah I haven't got a tar remover in my collection which I desperately need although not sure which is best to get? Yeah the clay bar was disgusting after some panels and was folded a few times to prevent causing further damage.

Autosmart tardis is really all you need. There are other products about but I've never felt the need to switch. And most people regard it as the best tar remover.

good good :)
