RE: Tried myself
CoolShake You did a great job.

Ok First lesson/Rule....Write this down - its for everyone.

1. Dont detail in the direct sunlight. YesNo

ok so you have got onto the right direction two buckets and all.

CoolShake And if I may "ADMIN" guys I would like to post this fantastic write up for Detailing info from Th SA VW Club Forum. Its the best information one can find, Everyone who dose some form of detailing on their cars/bikes should read this once at least.

RE: Tried myself
Its a great start, although with no before shots, its hard to get a feel for the improvement.

At the end of the day, you will see the difference most often and you should notice how much longer your car stays clean as well as how much easier it becomes to clean over time.

Looks great man, well done.

It's rather satisfying when you take this on and achieve a great result, so well done on taking the first step to what could become a addictive and expensive process.

Yeah I have been warned. And yes I have to agree the satisfaction I got was on another level.

RE: Tried myself
Nice job CoolShake

Next time you wash it, clay it as well and put on a layer of wax.

A basic clay kit will cost you about R300 and will leave the paint smooth to the touch.

A basic wax will cost you about R320. An applicator and mf buffing cloth will cost another R100 odd. The wax will add depth to the paint, make it shine some and protect it.

Oh, and wax your mags after giving them a good wash. Besides the added shine and protection, the next clean becomes a breeze.
