  • Ford Model: 2010 fiesta style 86

Posted 29 September 2010 - 11:58 AM

Hi,I have a black fiesta style with 2200 kilometers on the clock..
I am using cleaning products that my nearest auto factors have.
I use sionmez car wash with two microfiber mitts.
To clean any interior grit on door rubbers and around the door I use a very diluted solution of the car wash with warm water (use micro fiber cloths)
I use turtle wax metallic to get rid of scratches as I live on a country road and cannot avoid them.I also got a wax called sonax1 from a German friend and its nice and easy to apply and remove.
I use domestic window cleaner on windows (apart from windscreen)
I have a high pressure lance washer for the exterior.
I dry the exterior with Large microfiber cloths and then use chamois leather to finish.
If any of the above is wrong I would appreciate any advice ....Many thanks for reading post.

My new car is 2 weeks old, on day one it got a good wash and a coat of autoglym EGP. Its due for a wash now and I have got some autoglym HD wax. My plan is to wash with dodo juice shampoo then HD wax, is this ok or do I need to strip the EGP and if so how?

I would possibly use a glass cleaner meant for cars. I'm sure I read somewhere that there is a slight difference in chemicals or something along those line.

I am converted.

I detailed the car this weekend with Optimum No Rinse, using the two bucket method with grit guards and microfibre mitts. I have been forced down this route as I now have no outside water available for the pressure washer.

The car had been thoroughly detailed last time and was wearing two coats of Supernatural and the wheels had been sealed with FK1000P - but even so the car was far dirtier than I have ever let it get due to moving house.

The process was completely easy, and the finish was every bit as good as a full snow foam/Bilberry/full works detail - I had the swirl light on it afterwards as well and there were zero signs of fresh damage.

The product works by massively increasing the lubricity of the wash water (it's better at it than BTBM...) meaning you can safely dry to the car without rinsing.

I recommend anyone pushed for time/outside water to give it a go.

No pics as I was in a hurry - next time though.

Glad to hear it, Dan :) Pleased it didn't leave any swirls.

On another note, my BTBM and red mist have just run out. Any suggestions for replacements for either of them? I'm more than pleased with them both but was wondering if there is anything better out there :)

No Alex, for shampoo you can't beat BTBM for me. PM me and I'll give you a good price on the brand new bottle I have and no longer need.

As for Red Mist - Try some Serious Performance Show Detailer, it's cracking stuff and I would suggest gives better protection.
