How Mark Used Our Products

The car is a 354BHP Pettit Supercharged Mazda RX-8. It has been part of an almost 8 year project, from rubber to roof and had over £30k work of completed. I have been asked to display it in magazines but have always said no.

Well I always start with the two to three watering cans of rain water, I do not use any other type of water for the car, and we have a 400 gallon tank that’s fed from the garage roof. It’s also filtered so no grit can get into a can.

The car is rinsed off first, then I use an Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner to give the car a good clean. I use a wash mitt in this process to take off as much of the dirt I can, then the watering can to rinse off any smears left behind.

Next step is to mop the car semi dry, as rain water has no lime scale in it so you do not get any water mark beads left on the paint work, also it will allow you to polish without getting swirl marks. I use Autoglym High Definition Wax next, two coats with twenty minutes between each coat then, a top coat of Dodo Juice Orange Crush to leave a high shine using a clean buffing cloth for each coat. The last coat is the clear Autoglym Super Resin Polish, leave for 5 minutes and polish to a high shine with two Lamb’s Wool mitts, having mitts on to polish stops you putting oils from your hands back on to the polished paint work.

Cover the car for the night and re-do this process again the next day, I do this 4 times a year the paint work on my car is 7 years old. It’s a Burnt Orange Pearl flip that changes colour with heat or light. As you can see with these shots below.

I attend club meets or go to a show with others, the wheels are complete the same way but they get at least one coat of High Definition Wax and Super Resin Polish.

Thank you for taking the time to look.
