    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    Cool ts|s Detailing: Gave this Phoenix wings to soar!

    Total invested time: 15 hours.

    Interior:
    Leather cleaned with Adams Leather cleaner and saturated with Leatherique for a night
    Plastic cleaned with Megs APC+ and horse hair brushes
    Interior dressed with Adams Leather conditioner
    T-Top area cleaned with Megs APC+ and a fine detailing brush, then waxed and rubber dressed with 303
    Carpets and floor mats shampooed with Chemical Guys Fabric Clean and a Flex D/A with carpet brush attachment
    Windows (int/ext) cleaned with DP Krystal clear

    Below: the interior arrived slathered in heavy silicone-laiden chemicals, note the ridiculous sheen on EVERYTHING.





    This was my MF after only cleaning the rear speakers/hatch area!!!








    Engine:
    Checked for loose connections then draped aluminum foil over the alternator.
    Foamed with pressure washer and mix of Chemcial Guy's Grime Reaper and Wash&Gloss shampoo
    Agitated stubborn stuff with straight Grime Reaper and various brushes.
    Towel and blow dried off, then dressed with Detail Professionals vinyl dressing and stoners trim shine spray for the tight spots.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    Exterior:
    Foamed with Chemcial Guy's Grime Reaper and Wash&Gloss shampoo, scrubbed with a blue grout sponge.
    Wheels/wells cleaned with Chemcial Guy's Grim Reaper @ 6:1 and various brushes, dressed with TufShine permanent coating
    Borla exhaust tips cleaned with S100 Polishing soap
    I must add, the owner did a great job clay barring this car b/c my medium bar was not picking up much, even behind the wheels.
    Polished the paint with Flex 3401, Surbuf pads and Megs D300. This left the paint so incredible I nearly didn't make a finishing pass, but opted to do so with a green pad and Megs D301. For tight areas and door jambs I used a Griots 3" and MFDA pads.







    Below: Note the hazy paint and foggy reflections and swirl marks in the suns reflections.









    Below: After 2 step polishing; brilliant gloss, sick paint and epic reflections!

    Brands I use in no particular order:
    Optimum
    Adams
    Chemical Guys
    Meguiars Professional
    DP
    Leatherique

    You can find all of them from internet based distributors, none of which are sponsors so I can't list them.

    In PA/MD/NOVA they make the mobile detail guys do a HAZMAT assessment and sometimes you have to recapture your rinse-off. You ever run into that crap?
