Before - not too bad but I just wanted to clean it up and get some of the salt off.





Dirty wheels



Did you know Sonax Full Effect works well with the Kwazar Venus Pro?



Sonax Full Effect in action



Wheel Woolies used to agitate the tough brake dust and salt






Rinse



Adam's APC plus Adam's Car Wash (4oz/4oz/balance water) use to cut out all the salt and dirt off the car (it can and will strip last steps)


Shake well


Nice thick foam





After foaming we used an Uber Wool Wash Mitt to wash the car



Rinse


Beading shot of Sonax Polymer Net Shield - this was the test spot from 2 months back I did on the trunk deck - this was beading after the wash/apc mixture.

Sorry no polishing shots, it was a light polish to remove the wash marks.

After - not many afters getting dark
