Default 1st Mini MSOC Detailing Day

Attendees: Lady Woody, Woodbutch, Luther, Rickya and myself

Apologies for the lack of photos for the day, but it was not stop (on/off rain most of the day ;( but thankfully the gazebo came to the rescue )

Only got my camera out once I'd finished with Lady Woody's ride (the main focus of the day was to remove the swirl marks)















Shattered, but a great to see the transformation that can be had with a little tlc
(Luther do post the 50/50 shot mate)

Oh yeah - I know about the exhaust.....just didnt have the time to hit that ;(

No worries guys, roll on the summer

Lady Woody washed her car on the Friday night (to save time). The following treatment was carried out on Saturday... (8+hrs)

1. Foamed (Megs APC and Supersnow mix)
2. Alloys Treated with Billberry (mild mix)
3. Jet Washed
4. Clayed (medium compound)
5. Foamed (Supersnow and Megs NXT mix)
6. Paint Corrected with Porta Cable 7424 and Poorboys SSR2
7. Finished off with some Swissol Mirage Wax (Brazilian grade one carnauba)
