Right then. 2 Weeks after picking it up I'm ready to give the new Golf a thourough detail.
No editing or arty pics here I'm afraid, just an old point and shoot camera!


Here it is:

First job, wheels.

Generally mucky, Golf R front brakes are VERY dusty!

Wheels were jetwashed, soaked in 1:10 solution of AF Imperial, and agitated with a range of brushes. Despite the wheels being off the car, the EZ brush was necessary to reach the groove that sits behind the spokes.

P1010957_zpsqfnrwuad.jpg


Not too bad, but stubborn areas were then treated with Iron-X paste to remove any remaining contamination.

Wheels were given a second hit to make sure it was all removed, then jet washed off.

Process repeated for Tardis.

Then, the wheels were given a final wash in a fairly strong 1:3 G101 solution

Rinsed off, blow dried and brought inside to dry/warm up.

Arches scrubbed with APC and rinsed, then Tardis and rinsed

P1010985_zpsriq3navj.jpg


Jetted off, then washed with Dodo Juice BTBM and CarPro Merino lambs wool mitt. (2 bucket method & grit guard)

P1010988_zpswxfsxbif.jpg


Next decontamination. It probably doesnt show in the pics but it was very lightly raining all day, like a fine mist. This meant that IX etc were getting diluted, but it also meant I could up the dwell time.

Heavily doused in Iron-x

P1010989_zpsgyzjldt9.jpg


P1010991_zpssoims7fz.jpg


P1010993_zps2foqvnph.jpg


I was expecting worse tbh.
Process was then repeated for Taris, followed by another snowfoam wash, another BTBM wash, and Pat dried with a big yellow fluffy towell.
After close inspection I decided that clay wouldn't be necessary on this occasion.


Wheels back on and rolled inside for polishing

I'm still waiting for some decent weather / light to get some proper 'after' shots. It's been so dreary his week!

Awesome mate, probably my favourite detail i've read in a while! You mixed up the Forte and the dlux at one point though! ;)

Car looks immense and will stay looking like that for so long!

Car looks lovely! Nice work too! :cool:
Scrooge put me on to DLUX, so I did my newly refurbished wheels with it in July last year. It's still working perfectly :up:

That does look lovely, but isn't it a daily driver?

Not sure I could be bothered with all that on a daily lol.
