if your going to clean get it done as quick as possible and then get inside for some detailing and waxing.

i wont be doing mine until we get some warmer weather though. unfortunatly that means driving round in a black car that looks nearly white because of all the salt :(

It is good Hammie - but doesn't include a wax, whereas this may be more expensive, but it's better value in terms of the amount of products it contains...

You could then go for any of the Dodo waxes - the pictures above show what diamond white can do, I'm loving purple haze on min as a top layer at present as well.

Or this one contains Supernatural, which is in my wax top 5...

Another wax which is worth considering on white is Swissvax Glacier - or of course Swisswax Best of Show but that's 150 a pot :blink:

HD looks great on white -

[img]http://i897.photobucket.com/albums/ac172/DanGull237/DSC01007.jpg[/img]

The first detail I ever did on the mk7 was using HD.

Are you using a spray tyre dressing? I've never got on with those. Get some Megs endurance gel and the special applicator, it looks great and keeps everything on the tyres only.
hammie
no iv got sum sonus tyre dressing,yeh the HD is amazing stuff.whats best to keep the white clean in this weather or even in the summer for w while im cleaning mine every 2-3days iv just given up in this weather

Nothing keeps the car clean in this weather :angry:

However - a couple of coats of FK1000P from, say, Serious Performance does help the dirt adhere less and come off more easily at washes.

cheers ill order tht just now,is this a good brush for getn to the inside of the wheels [url="http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/wheels-and-tyres/vikan-extra-long-wheel-spoke-brush/prod_391.html"]http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/wheels-and-t...h/prod_391.html[/url]

Careful Dan, warm water freezes faster than cold water, so you could end up with your car covered in a sheet of ice... :-"

Don't worry hook - I've just had a floor drain fitted in the garage - so detailing is going indoors from now on!

change of subject but how the hell do you get the inside of a wookies fist dry?
Ive used mine once dried the outside ok but the inside is taking forever, 3 days since i used it and it started to smell like someone has pi**ed in it, ive had it on top of the radiator etc
DanGull
Perhaps turn it inside out. How did the inside get wet? You didn't machine wash it did you? Is it wet just from use in the bucket? I think mine stayed dry inside. Can I put any more questions in this post? What do you think? Can I keep going and going...?

I soon got tired of my wookie and went back to a Megs microfibre.

yes i put the whole thing in the bucket , next time I will try and keep the inside from getting wet, I tried turn it inside out but the neck is to tight and i cant do it. oh well I guess it will just have to sit on the radiator untill it dries out.

Same problem with sheepskin mitts, a bugger to get dry on the inside.
I've no experience of the Wookiee's Fist :blink: but the best way to get a sheepskin mitt dry is to keep it open with something like a roll of sellotape inside the cuff & hang it up to dry. Still takes days to dry though.

Hi everyone,
I've decided to splash out on a snow foam lance. Could someone suggest a reasonably priced one and some snow foam solution to go with it?

I thought this was ok... does anyone have any thoughts on it?

Thanks

From what i've read he recommends the snow foam and citrus somethingorother from 14d themselves.

I think that's what Dan uses also :)

From what I've read, go with the autobrite foam lance. ;)
DanGull
<whispers> that is the autobrite lance, but under I4D's banner...

It's a cracker.

It's also more expensive (but after FOCX discount its 44.35)... it is in stock though :D

Which snow foam do you use Dan?

(I'm gonna buy a foam lance next month *sigh*)
DanGull
I use two types - both I4D's own. The citrus one is harsh enough to irritate un gloved hands, so I use that only for arches, under the car and wheels. For the paint I use their pH neutral one, very nice it is too.

I have some 3D wax red foam I'm waiting to try also, will report back.
aph1101
Thanks for the advice, Dan :) I've ordered the I4D lance and the standard I4D snow foam solution (not the citrus one). Just got to wait for it to arrive..... I wanna play with it NOW :P

[quote name='sussex' post='57938' date='Jan 3 2010, 09:22 PM']Dan, which wax would you recommend for vision?[/quote]

I would go with Blue Velvet, but generally, any of the DoDo waxes would suffice.
