Spring Wash & Wax Completed


Recommended Posts

For once not a issue/problem posting...just a few pictures from my days work :)

Every years work...spring wash exterior and interior. This year I went after two new product for the exterior: the specialist in the shop recommended simple 'Handy' washing up liquid to get rid of all dirt and wax on the paint. Worked very well. For waxing the car I used the new NXT Tech Wax 2 from Maguiars. I'm not to sure about the result yet, I remember the surface being smoother last spring with Swissvax wax that I borrowed from a friend. For rubber I stayed with Swizol gum feed with flawless result, same goes for the interior with all Swizol products. Again took off at least 20'000 miles off in looks ;-).

Thanks :) One thing to mention: I did these photos before rubbing the leather a second time with a microfibre cloth so it now looks a bit more matt than shiny just the way I like it...

BTW Swizol is not cheap but these bottles last very long as you only apply a very thin layer.

Looks absolutely fantastic. Having a black car, I'm going to have to learn more about appropriate exterior care methods to keep it looking good. By the way, how did you get the ipod/Iphone hookup working with your stock head unit?

@Hijack: look at my blog, I actually have a normal power cable for the Iphone (for TomTom) in the holder and a Solisto device in the trunk for a ipod that supplies music. Additionally I use an FM sender from time to time that is installed in the compartment of the arm rest (I installed power plugs there).

I was at Swizöl (Swissvax) yesterday and ended up buying a wax kit, hydralip (similar to Maguairs) and some towels and applicators, nice project for the easter holiday...I'll of course put some pictures here when I'm done :).
