First Detail Day

Yess everything setup yesterday for a planned first detail today of the Black Scirocco. Together with a friend who's also member of this forum and also doing professional car-detailing, we're starting with some first deep-black-shine actions ))

Some gear collected

As today travelled to the South for some first work on the Rocco ! First much cofffee and we started around 10 AM. Car was washed two times before, no specials things futhermore.


Car washed with Super Swow Foam


After washing al full clay. No strange spots or something noticed. After claying we've started with Polishing. We used the PBW SSR 1.

Some first results after Polising

Feeding of Paint

We used here the PBW Black Hole, our Favorite one to get the correct feeding and Wet Look


Final step was waxing. We used the Smart Wax Concours Carnauba Wax

Some Results ;D

We've ended up with a big smile in the reflection of the car Do some All Purpose Cleaner and Season Dressing for Rubbers and plactics. Wheels Basic with Quick Wheel Detailer and some dressing for the tires.

There was one thing left we have to do

Thanks for Johan aka "Wax Wizard" for all the help
