detailersdomain is on a distinguished road
Winter detail 3

A few pictures from this weekend, the GTI being white you really can't tell how bad it was...also the after shots weren't too great.

This car wasn't too bad at all, just a ton of fall out on it, so it needed a good bath and a massive claying!!!! Full interior as this is a daily that's used to drop off the 3 1/2 year old. Unfortunately forgot to take interior afters.

Check out the transformation.


1. Wheels cleaned with P21S Gel, sprayed down all four wheels let it sit and then brushed and cleaned the wheels sprayed off brake dust and grime with firehose nozzle

2. Cleaned the wheel wells with P21S Autowash

3. Car washed with Adam's car wash applied with Foam Gun and new schmitt wash mitts.

4. Dried car down and started to clayed the car with Adam's Clay bar and Adam's Detail Spray

5. Used AP Swirl and Haze plus AP Revive Polish on a white Edge dual sided pad, spread the polish with the PC off and then started to spread it with the PC on 3 once the polish was spread I increased the speed to 5 and worked the polish in till it broke down.
Wiped off excess.

6. Used P21S Concours Look Wax for the last step. Applied by hand.

7. Windows cleaned with Adam's Glass Cleaner

8. Tires and black trim dressed wtih Adam's VRT
