How Nathan Used Our Products

I own a MK1 Seat Leon Cupra R, Keeping the car looking as mint as possible is something that is a must for me, nothing sets my OCD off more than dirty wheels, smeared glass or swirl & marring marks. So I start off with a good rinse down from top to bottom to remove any loose dirt safely. I then move onto the wheels where I give them a spray of Valet Pro Dragons Breath, whilst allowing this to work its magic for five minutes I focus my time on the wheel arches using a microfibre wash mitt that I only use for the arches.

Once the arches are done I then use various brushes to get into the intricate areas of my alloys tackling the brake dust that builds up quickly from the 4 pot Brembo Brakes making sure to get into the barrels of the alloys & wheel nuts.

When Iโ€™m satisfied the wheels are clean I then apply a thick coating of Gtechniq W4 Citrus Foam, whilst I allow this to dwell for 5 minutes I use a soft bristled brush to go round any badges, window rubbers, grills and any other tight areas that may be missed with a wash mitt. Then thoroughly rinse the car down. I then apply a second coat of snow foam this time not so thick and I work this along with a hand wash using the 2 bucket method, Gtechniq G-Wash & Gtechniq WM2 Wash Mitt.

Once washing is complete I then move onto drying the vehicle, once dry I apply a coat of Gtechniq c2v3 Liquid Crystal, although this product has the potential to last up to 8 months I enjoy applying it every other week to keep the protection to a maximum.

I then move onto wiping down the windows to remove any streak marks & coat the tyres & plastic trim with Gtechinq T1.

After the exterior is complete I then move onto the interior firstly removing the matts and vacuuming them off, then go round the whole interior vacuuming using multiple adapters to get into intricate areas like air vents & down the side of the seats.

This whole process for me can take a fair few hours due to being so OCD with it but the whole car has a lot of protection including a ceramic coating.
