How Adam Used Our Products

First task I did was to go around all the wheels and arches with a degreaser mixed 5:1 to remove any stubborn dust or grime before I started and left to soak for 10 minutes.

While it was left to soak for 10 minutes I prepared the Gilmour Foamaster II Pro Foam Gun for use with 1 part Ultimate Snow Foam, 1 part shampoo and the rest warm water,

Once I was happy with the amount of time with the degreaser soak time I thoroughly rinsed all the wheels and arches. Then came the stage of foaming up the car with the Gilmour Foamaster II Pro Foam gun. Then once again the foam is left to dwell for 10 minutes

Once it has been foaming for 10 minutes I rinsed it with the good old pressure washer and the prepared my washing buckets 2 bucket's of course1 bucket rinse with grit guard and one with shampoo. Now that the car was ready I started the wash on the wheels.

Once the wheels where washed to satisfactory level I moved onto the next stage, unfortunately because of the type of car and the wheels I was unable to remove the wheels from the car, although the arch's where scrubbed.

The next stage I decided to clay the wheels to make sure all contaminants have been removed. After the wheels was clayed and all contaminants where removed I washed them again and then rinsed. After this stage was complete I moved onto the car paintwork itself and started washing with the 2-bucket method and a trust wash mitt. Now that the car was washed 1st time over and rinsed it was time to dry, which was done using the patting method.

After was all dry the paintwork felt very rough and could tell it had never been clayed before so on this instance I decided to use Sonus Green Clay and start my paintwork prep stage.

By this stage the car was washed once again and then put in the shade ready to be dried and taped up ready for defect removal. Once it had been dried it was time to be taped up with 3M 3434 tape. Then applied Menza IP after swirls was removed by the Porta Cable I applied Meguiars #7.

After fully applied I gave it a coat of Poorboys Natty Paste Carnauba Wax.
