Winter detail 2, pretty bad one

This car was truly one of the worst cars we have ever done, 3 guys, 3 1/2 hours.

Complete engine, exterior, and interior detail.

Here are some pictures, however we were so tired at the end we didn't get as many after shots.

Exterior
1. Cleaned the car with the ABC system from Valuguard, (industrial strength stuff)
this system takes about 35 minutes for a car like this.
2. Clay bar, used Adam's Clay Bar and Adam's Detail Spray for clay lube.
3. Swirl Removal with Adam's Swirl and Haze
4. Polished the car with Adam's Revive Polish
5. Waxed the car with Adam's Butter Wax
6. Dressed Tires, with Adam's VRT, cleaned window with Adam's Glass Cleaner.

Engine
----------------------------
1. Sprayed P21S Auto Wash (degreaser) on the engine and brushed the soiled areas good.
2. Hosed off the engine
3. Waited for it to dry, then dressed with Adam's VRT and Adam's In and Out

Interior
----------------------------
1. Vacuumed, Vacuumed, Vacuumed
2. Cleaned cloth seats with Adam's Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner (note to self need to get a steam cleaner) the cloth seats were horrible we really needed more help from a steamer.
3. Cleaned and dressed interior with Adam's VRT.

I'm sure I missed something in there but here are the pics.

Mileage:

amazing, especially the engine bay. So you can just spray under the hood with a hose? Is there anything that you should avoid getting water in?

On my X5 I would just avoid flooding it, use P21S Autowash and a soft brush, loosen up the dirt /grime with it and spray down the engine.

Engine should be warm to touch. You can use an MF to dry it down, then dress it up.
