THE Fiesta Detailing Thread

1,083 posts in this topic

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 :(

http://www.carnaubawaxshop.co.uk/shop/view...?product_id=182 is this a good starter kit?? what the best stuff for white cars?

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...

Detailing Starter Kit

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...

Supernatural Bundle

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 -

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.

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.

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!
