it was wet sanded when i first got it and every 3 months it gets the works
washed with ph neutral shampoo using a wookie mitt
rotary machine polisher to remove swirls
da machined polisher to finish the prep
rims de-ironised then sealed
plastics coated and sealed
then 2 coats of nano sealent (my current prefered finish)
or 2 coats of wax (swissvax shield is my favourite)
all glass has g-techniq's g1/2/4 on them , great stuff , when travelling over 40mph theres no need for wipers
heres mine in action
after 3 months the bonnet ends up pretty much like this due to using detailing sprays to keep shiny inbetween so it gets the rotary treatment
but after a couple of hours with the rotary polisher it ends up like this
and as for kit
, dont get me started
heres my mobile kit
sorry , its a passion of mine and i get carried away sometimes
happy to help if anyone has any questions on products technique's ect as ive pretty much tried them all over the years
business is quiet this time of year so im happy to help if your passing guys
, i could have your notes looking like new
flash: yes headlights are rotary polished to shine like the paint work
i use 10,000,000 candle luminem torches for swirl spotting and a paint detective depth gauge to see how much paint i have to work with
g-techniq's do some great stuff , all expensive but with them you get what you pay for
poorboys touchless wheel wash is my favourite product of all time
it gets bloody expensive , my kit averages at any one time at about £3000 but i have to have everything to cover any situation and any car paint
wax's are the biggest expense for good quality ones , i have around 5/7 pots at any one time to suit different situations and colours but for example my swissvax shield costs £130 a pot
detailing is addictive , hard work but when you see the finished article its all worth it , the average detail i do takes 5/7 hrs without stopping , its hard to have breaks as most products are timed on the car so while one is working you put on another so you are going non stop , but i love it
Hi Fellow Note owners
Just starting a thread to document my Nissan Note ownership.
I have just sold a 2002 Audi S3 and was looking for a car for the short commute to work.
I was looking for something cheap to tax and insure and something reliable.
Started looking at the Note and liked...
