Get some bilberry wheel cleaner apply that and then jet wash, then get a microfibres wash MIT to clean inside (including the back of the spokes) and outside the rims properly, whatever protection you have on your car you can not get it really clean without physically washing it.When I got the car, I removed the wheels, cleaned the inner rims of grease and residue, and applied a coating of Auto Finesse Mint Rims. All I now do, even after a year, is to pressure wash the wheels, being careful to get into the inner rim, (without soaking myself ) Most of the brake dust and other dirt just comes off. Occasionally I have to go over the outer rim with a sponge or old mit, and use a brush or some other means of wiping over the inner rim.
And I thought I was doing well just getting round to washing my car. Impressive!I use a combination, for general washing, valet pro ph neutral snow foam and megs gold class shampoo (make sure you use the correct concentration)
For a polish and wax, after washing as normal I use iron x to remove fallout, then tardis to remove the tar. Megs or sonus clay bar, then a machine polish using my megs G220 DA first with megs ultimate compound and a megs polishing pad, then I clean and finess the paint with swissvax paint cleaner (professional) and a megs finishing pad. I then wax with swissvax best of show
As LongGrass says (in a different context) .....Lol. I don't wash mine. It gets washed by volvo when serviced.
How many days did this take ???
Works for me also.Just tried Meguiars Ultimate wash & Wax, and Mequirs NXT Tech Wax. For me the result is brilliant.
I can get 2 cars washed on a good day (about 3.5 hours per car), and it takes 2 days (a weekend) to clean and polish and wax each car (paint work only), time well spent.How many days did this take ??? I think my family would like me to spend the same quality time on them !!!
Just tried Meguiars Ultimate wash & Wax, and Mequirs NXT Tech Wax. For me the result is brilliant. Sure I could spend $1000 on some swisswax, but I would rather spend it on Coffee and Cake.
Here is tip, make sure you wipe the wax off the reversing camera !! Took me 10 seconds to realize what was going on and that the camera wasn't broken.
