So starting at 10am and finishing at 4.30pm finally got a chance to winter prep the car after days of rain. The car was snow foamed, iron x, clay clothed, then a quick mop, then artdeshine applied, and then artdeshine paint sealent. This is my first time proper detailing so may not be perfect but hope you enjoy

Looks good mate. Ive never done detailing either. How did you find it? I tried today got it pressure cleaned n sponge wash. Then the rain started. It's rained every weekend for about a month now. Hate winter time.

Sponge wash...
A good wash mit would be a good investment, used with the two bucket technique.
i use two buckets just with a sponge. Ive seen the guys at the 3 quid car washes using mitts n thought they were a no no. N I wax wi the ice stuff. It's quick n easy but I know it's not right. Just don't know where to start with proper detailing.

Two buckets are good, a good quality mit should hold the grime away from the paint till you rince in the clean water. This is why i use a mit.

As detailing goes, good microfibre cloths for polish, sponge applicator pad for application of wax then microfibre cloth to buff.

Iron-x is a good product also Bilt & Hamber clay is what i use as you only need water for a lube.

Do your own research, you will find your own way.

Good luck matey...
