How Alex Used Our Products

Pure white Polo GTI, Start with a layer of snow foam from the guy's at Auto Finesse letting it stay for 15/20 minutes and remove as much dirt and grime as possible. After this I lightly pressure wash it off, then using the two bucket method I use Zymol shampoo and the Microfibre Madness "Incredimitt" to wash over the car and afterwards using another mitt to wash the wheels. Rinsing of the wash just by using an open ended hose. After this I move the vehicle into the hanger and begin the drying with the aqua towel.

Making sure everything is dry I then begin with a glaze, I didn't need to polish as I did this a week before this Winter prep detail. I go panel by panel letting the "Cherry Glaze" cure just a little and then wipe it off. After the whole car is glazed I go onto adding two layers of "tough coat" allowing this to haze over for 10/15 miuntes again going panel by panel. After the coating of tough coat is applied and buffed off I go onto adding a wax, this time I used the Auto Finesse "Soul" wax. Taking my time and applying by hand using "Meguiar's" applicator pads. The end result feels insane and the look I wanted was achieved.

When it came to the wheels I just used the "cherry glaze" and wiped down after allowing it to haze over, for the tyres I prefer the gloss finish so went with the "Meguiars Tyre Gel". For the exterior plastic trim I used a small amount of cherry glaze to obtain a small amount of shine from it, when it came to the exhaust I used Meguiar's Metal Polish" being quick and easy to use and the finish is perfect.

When it came to cleaning inside the car that was the easy part, I don't eat, drink or smoke inside of it so a quick hoover inside on the seats and floor is all that's ever needed. Adding a vanilla air freshener to it every 2 weeks to keep a nice smell. A wipe across all trim and dash with a microfibre just to get rid of any dust build up.

Hopefully you guy's can get an idea of what I do to clean the Polo. Thanks for the read and I hope the photos help.
