How Russell Used Our Products
The car itself I have owned for nearly a year now. When I first bought it, I set about machine polishing and correcting using a G220 DA and Meguiar’s #83 on a Sonus swirl buster (orange) pad.
With the tougher parts I step up to Menzerna intensive polish with a small spot of lime prime to aid refining and stop the Menz from chalking.
An intensive wash with 2 buckets and Dodo's own sour power, then a dry down with a couple of very deep plush drying towels using the drag and drape method.
Once or twice a year I’m now employing a very quick skim using lime prime followed by a super thin coat of Dodo Juice Supernatural, followed by another a couple hours later. On this occasion a quick hand app of lime prime was called for with a very light coat of Poorboy’s Blackhole to provide a working base for the Supernatural to go onto.
The tyres are dressed with Zaino z-16 for a more natural look and the inner stainless rim on the wheel is coated with Zaino Z-CS clearseal.
All arches and exterior plastic grill etc are treated firstly to a very diluted APC solution and soft detail brush then a spritz of either Poorboy's natural dressing or a more intense detail with black WOW.
Windows once fully dried were sealed with redmist and the engine bay stainless parts get the more potent Zaino z8.
The superb z8 was later used to top up the finish of the whole car once I was happy the wax had cured. The solution I use is diluted 50/50 to deter stripping of any wax product and just add an extra gloss over the finish.
