With demon shine you do still need to wash the car first and let it dry. Every now and again the car is filthy and I give it a good wash outside, then clean the inside and by the time the outside is dry I can't be bothered to wax it, so I resort to demon shine (if I can be bothered to do THAT!) and just get a bit of a shine.

 

EDIT: Just to add I watched mighty car mods episode and they mentioned a 'spray detailer' which I guess is what demon shine is. They say it's great to use between waxes. So yeh, I guess if you wash your car every week you might not want to wax it every damn week...you get the drift :D

Since owning it I've found the alloys really easy to clean. I can get my hand right in and clean them well. My Audi ones we're a nightmare. U had the kurbed one sorted ?

Excellent job there  :)

 

When I got my Focus last year I was determined to keep it looking good,

spent a fortune in Halfords just weeks after getting car on clay/polish/shield,

I've only applied the Armour Shield stuff once last October lol.

 

Been meaning to spend a day on it to do a proper job, as you said it took you 7 hours!

My latest excuse is it's been too hot  :P

Very nice! It seems you have a good collection of products there. I've been detailing for about a year and my collection keeps growing!

Be careful with the squeegee (water blade) as the slightest bit of dirt or grit caught in it will scratch the paint. I had one to start off with and I was advised not to use it on the paint. Keep it for the windows though!
