Detailing Chat & Questions Thread

Seen them for £45 (q washers) for 10m. I'd expect 15m to come in at £55.

Either way though the cheaper Karchers and Nilfisks are still pretty crap. Mines nearly 5 years old but rarely used. I'd not buy another.
£46.99 for a 15m

I’ve had two Nilfisks over the last 9 years and my current one is still going strong.Both of mine have taken a right old pounding and I can’t fault them.

they do exactly what I need them to do ie wash cars and clean the garden patio. I just don’t see the need to spunk £500+ on one to do the same job as a £150 machine.

if I was a professional valeter/detailer I’d just go out and buy a hot water karcher.

Horses for courses.

I get what you’re saying but use one and you might change your mind.

Why do we spend a bucket load on shampoos, ceramics and waxes when your bog standard turtle wax equivalent will make do?

I don’t really buy into the frequency or pro detailer argument. You’re top line Kranzle won’t decrease cleaning time, it’ll just improve the efficiency of contactless washing while enhancing the effectiveness of the jet wash process (snow foam etc). Certainly not a jet wash for the masses but definitely one for the detailers out there. I’m yet to see anyone who owns one say they’re a waste of money or offer nothing that your bog standard Karcher offers. In fact most say the exact opposite.

Just for the record lads and ladies: EZ had 5L of fallout for £25 delivered. Fill your boots.

Not tried it yet. Well reviewed on the EZ fb page but there is a lot of ass kissing in the hope of free stuff on there. Value for money it cant be beaten. Yesterday when I looked a bottle of AF Iron Out was £13 ex del for 500ml. So its 5x better value in that example

Will do. Unlikely to be using it for a little while as my detailing spot is occupied! The reviews all seem to be good tbh, even outside of the EZ circle jerk

No such luck for me. They've just told me they will email when they have a delivery date. I assume because they want me to cancel as it was so cheap. @Sunglasses_Ron I ordered the same day as you and I haven't had anything yet. What have you been bribing amazon with aye?

I had the email saying no delivery date a couple of weeks ago and asking if I wanted to cancel. I just ignored it and got that email the other day.

Fingers crossed 🤞

I really hope so. Got a few places to test this product. I've ignored them trying to get me to cancel so I'll hopefully receive it soon. Let us know when you get it?

I’ll ignore for now and hope they cough up a driver date ina few days. Also ordered on the 18th as soon as I saw the post. Hopefully it arrives.

Been very lazy in the last few months with keeping on top of the cars. Need to give the mrs’ BM a good clean and then a top up of coatings. Bought a few bits in anticipation

Let us know what you think of the wet coat. I've got polar seal at the moment and its epic
I’ve been using Auto Finesse aqua coat and I’m less than impressed with it tbh.

I used hydro2 for years but found that it was leaving staining which was especially noticeable on dark coloured cars.

think ill give the Gyeon one a try next.

Honestly, give Polar Seal a go. 3 cap fills, 400ml of water and go to town. Smells like old mans aftershave (in a nice way) and for how quick it is to apply, it lasts really well. Did the old mans car after a spray decon and it's still going 5 weeks on. Not as beady but acceptable.

Tried it on the Clio last week, which hasn’t been washed in months and its years since it was last deconned (unfortunately it’s parked on the road so I’ve given up with it cosmetically)
Pretty impressed with it. Seems to work better than bathe+ shampoo.

The BM was coated with mohs+ about 20 months ago but the bonnet and roof aren’t responding that well to bathe+ to top hydrophobic qualities anymore. So I’ve decided to do a non contact decon then top up. The Gyeon range is pretty confusing and even they were a big vague on what to top up with. As I already have cure.

I've been using Carbon Collective Hybrid recently and it works great. Durability may not be as good as others but no staining or marks at all.

Think the Di Vessel helps massive with reducing water marks though.

I’ve ordered my first bit to get my detailing bundle together. Started with CarPro TriX - amazing stuff.

Has anyone used the clay mit yet?

Mine arrived after a couple of days. The deal was posted on Detailing World so I presume they go overrun with orders.

TBH I’m surprised they didn’t refund the lot as apparently £20 is cheaper than cost.
