Me

Seriously, me ... I have a detail business, am insured, but just not full time. I am mobile and also offer pickup/dropoff service. You can also dropoff at my location in Waipio.

PM me for more info.

Weesped, How'd you like it? Glad we finally got to work on your car!

Started out with the beautiful brake dusted wheels, not to mention the rain over the last couple of days.

WHEELS
Swissvax WHEEL cleaning concentrate (1:2 mixture in Swissvax atomising spray bottle) via Swissvax Wheel Brush

Then, onto the process...
WASH
ONR with a tile grout sponge
Dried with PakShak 24x36 Ultra Soft Waffle Weave

POLISH
Menzerna 106FF via Metabo @ 1800rpm vs LC White CCS pad
Menzerna 106FF via Makita BO6040 spd 5 vs LC Green CCS pad

PRE-WAX
Wipedown with Swissvax Cleaning Fluid via Swissvax White CF pad
**this step is REQUIRED before using Swissvax waxes**
Not only because it is recommended by Swissvax, but it makes a huge difference!

WAX
Swissvax Concorso via Swissvax wax applicator (dual-sided black) foam-side
Buffed off with Black Swissvax Wax Towel

ENJOY!!!

k, so I missed a spot...

Thanks, check out autopia.org for some detailers in your area. I'd go with a clay, paint correction if necessary, Zaino Z2Pro, topped off with Collinite 476 or 845 for some major extended durability. Fortunately, our Lexus' don't need to hibernate during winters. Heck, we don't even HAVE a winter. Its Summer allyear long! Good luck!

HTC has stuff from Chemical Guys, 1Z, Poorboys, Megs, and others. But he's closing early today because of the BIG game! Come before 12, I'll be there too.
