    As it was feeling a bit like Spring today, I decided to tackle my filthy NX which has a GTechniq ceramic coat applied. She hadn't been cleaned for a month, and was caked in mud from the rural lanes where I live. I knew I was in for a bit of a session rather than a quick maintenance wash...

    1. Bilt-Hamber snow foam (using Nilfisk pressure washer)
    2. Decontamination using CarPro TriX
    3. Body wash using Bilt-Hamber auto wash (wheels with Bilt-Hamber Auto-Wheel)
    Once dry...
    4. Water spots removed using FSE
    5. Layer of Bilt-Hamber Double Speed wax applied
    6. c2v3 applied to finish
    7. Wheels finished with Bouncers Looking Sweet
    8. Glass finished with Bouncers Look Sharp
    9. Tyres finished with Bouncers Dress to Impress
    10. All door shuts and under bonnet washed and finished with c2v3
    11. Exterior plastics maintained using Chemical Guys New Look Trim Gel
    12. Finally, a few small stone chips were touched in.

    My neighbours think I'm insane but admit the car is looking pretty good, even though the sun has gone in...☹️

    Summer wheels and tyres (silver finish) will go back on in about a month at which point I'll sort the Winter wheels (black finish) out for storage.

    Well done- it looks great.
    I am not that committed to making mine look that polished and shiny.

    My neighbour opposite - who pre-retirement owned a dealership - came out to a) congratulate me on my diligence and b) to say that he'd never seen a depth and shine like it! Which was nice, 5 hours in to a 6 hour session! Who needs a high from drugs or alcohol when you've got detailing...:Grin:

    Mind you, one 15 mile journey to work round the lanes this morning and it's covered in mud again. DOH!

    Also, fresh air and exercise.
    Who needs the gym?
