Full Detail

Post by Hawkeye » Wed Apr 17, 2019 3:46 pm

Given conditions were ideal this morning, I decided to give the R-Line a complete detail - took about 3 hours in total, but went much further than what the dealerships do:

- Foamed car to remove loose dirt and sprayed off
- Hot wash using Meguiars Gold Class Car Wash Shampoo and Conditioner
- Sprayed off and dried
- Car inspected closely for any paint discrepancies or oxidised areas - those found cleaned off using Menzerna SF4000 Super Finish
- Paintwork fully sealed using Menzerna PL Power Lock Polymer Sealant (incl all door, bonnet and tailgate shuts)
- Car polished using Harly Wax Pure 100% Carnauba Wax (incl all door, bonnet and tailgate shuts)
- Polished over again using Meguairs Gold Class Quik Detailer to remove any residual polish
- All glass cleaned using Meguairs NXT Glass Cleaner
- Brightwork polished using Gtechniq M1 Metal Polish
- Wheels waxed using SmartWax RimWax
- Tyres dressed with Meguairs Gold Class Endurance Tire Gel
- Black Trim dressed with Williams F1 bumper and trim gel (including inner wheel arches)

Really pleased with how it all turned out

Looks good !

Is 'Menzerna PL Power Lock Polymer Sealant' equivalent to a ceramic coating ?

And how big is your garage for storing all that stuff :lol:

That's spooky Hawkeye. I did exactly the same thing this morning with similar products. (I should take shares out in Halfords!!!)
White and Black really show of the great lines of the T-Roc... Love it. :D

No - it does a similar job to but is a Polymer rather than Ceramic coating. Ceramic coatings last longer (and costs a significant amount of wonga more), but when I looked I didn't have enough of the Gyeon Ceramic sealant I generally like to use, so used the Menzerna one instead - just as good, but doesn't last quite as long - about 12-18 months normally, whereas a ceramic one would generally last 24-36 months on average. But then I completely detail my cars twice a year, usually late spring and late autumn, so no worries about longevity.

As for size of garage - double garage ( just about big enough for all the cleaning products :lol: ) and to store my motorbike

Very nice ianchelt - yours came up lovely - ideal conditions this morning for washing and polishing! (Like your black roof rails - wish I'd thought of that)

To be fair, it looks beautiful. I hope you own an air rifle: any seagull that comes within 100 metres of your car should be shot before it delivers its payload. :D

I have dedicated many years of my life to preening and polishing my cars. Then, the awful day comes when you've just spent hours on detailing and you catch your haggard reflection in the gleaming bonnet or door. Suddenly, you think WTF am I doing, life is too short.

In a couple of days time of course, you polish your car again. Sigh :roll: .
