Cadillac Detailing and Bodywork - Interior and Exterior including Body and Wheels Discussion, HOLY #%&* Turbomangt !! in Item Specific Cadillac Discussion; Ive been at it for 5 hours and am done for the day.
Im quite impressed
A far superior finish ...
Ummm *SHRUG* don't know. I guess you're keeping the elements off the paint. I think it depends on the environment too. I guess there's no SET right or wrong way. Whatever is warranted. If you keep the car clean clean all the time then once a year is probably enough anyway.
Im not the best photorapher. Maybe should have had my 9yr old take them for me. Shes got a knack.
They dont do total justice. But I believe they do show how great the products, done with the correct process, really are.
You really have to see it in person for the real shock value
Here's the first one.
Notice how you can look all the way down the street in the doors. Is like a mirror.
Also remember this is a silver car. Imagine on black or a darker red or blue
Ive been able to get a very nice shine, reflection etc before.
And thats been with just as much care and work as usuall.
But I have to say, without any doubt whatsoever, that what Im seeing now makes everything else Ive achieved pale in comparison.
Thanx Gary you are certainally true to your word.
Cant wait to hit the highway tomorrow.
Better not damn well rain. Havent really had a chance to show it off yet. lol
Except for the neighbors that is.
Recieved some compliments from a couple of them. And they were the ones whom usually scoff at everything, turn up there noses, and or mostly dont have anything to say at all let alone a compliment.
Wow I cant stop lookin at these pics lol
Should mention one thing.
You should have a seperate applicator pad and Micro Fibre towel for each product you are going to apply.
I thought I had it covered but then discovered that I didnt.
Will just slow ya down lol.
BTW. I know I dont have to do all the processes every time. But was wondering.
Was 7 hours a resonable amount of time for all that I did ?
I don't think you need to dry between wash and clay. You should be claying with a bucket of soapy water and detailer spray anyway. The water you're drying off will help you.
Thought about that after Id already dried.
But was a chance to see the difference after each process.
Was able to see what the clay cleared off then etc.......
Will skip it next time though.
But did find that it is "absolutally imperative" not to hit any water drops when applying or "specifacly" removing any of the other compounds/polishes.
It will cause it to smear and spread. Once the fiber towel gets a bit damp its almost like your just re-applying or only moving the stuff around.
Did the best I could when drying. Opened all doors, hood, trunk, but still got a few drips when doing round the front cowling.
Wasnt too bad though.
All at my work were impressed. The boss wants to borrow it and pay me a percentage so he can do his Avalanche. He didnt say anything about it yesterday, but with the rain we had today he couldnt help but to comment on the beading. He couldnt get over how fine the beads were. Nothing was larger than a pencil eraser end if that.
