Thank you..

I just did a good wash and a quick Z2 application.. However, once spring arrives I will be doing a true cleaning and utilizing a different application process with all new products..

Let me know you think.

CG Citrus Wash
CG Water Spot Remover
Clay
Menzera FP II: I have very minor swirls
Glaze
Jet Seal 109
Either CG 50/50 Wax or Sov. Paste Wax from Detail Image

Gorgeous from a fellow BS coupe driver. LOVE the red interior and I almost went for that color instead opting for Cream Beige but I still love that combo. Very nice!!!

Thanks, the Cream Beige is one my favorites as well!!

Im very happy w/ the the Black Saphire in regards to swirls, much easier than the Jet Black..

Love the sapphire black.

You asked about your more thorough detail -- I don't know how important it is to use a water spot remover if you're going to clay and polish. I would think polishing should get rid of any water spots still left after the clay.

Well clay in general will not take off water spots. I have used a he/med/light clay steps on details and still had waterspots left on the paint.

You also have to remember that water spots are Calcium build-up. So when you think about using a power buffer to take them off, you could inturn cause swirls in your paint.

The CG water spot remover is a great product and will prep the paint for a great detail.

I think that his process and products looks perfect!

Just keep in mind that CG 50/50 is a great looking wax, but it does not add much protection.

If I want a wax that will be tougher or last longer I go with the petes 53. But if you are going to do this in the summer, then go with the 50/50 and get the bling!

1.wash(good chice)
2.waterspot(perfect)
3.clay(perfect)
4.buff(perfect)
5.glaze (try the CG revive glaze. I used it today and loved it!)
6.seal(jetseal!!)
7.wax(50/50 is a great bling wax, but if you are looking for more protection use pete's 53)

5050 will offer just as much "protection" as 53 if not more due to its higher carnauba content. Its the "durability" that 53 has over 5050

Any chance you could do the right thing and get rid of those rediculous yellow corner reflectors? Until you do, no-one sees the work you did on the car - all they see are those stupid reflectors. The rest of the civilized world doesn't use them. Get rid of them. It's a 20 minute DIY, there's no excuse.

First, thank you everyone for their positive feedback and helpful tips concerning the watersports.. However, fragadellic I dont think anyone appreciates your negative comments and there is obviously no need for your input if your going to be rude...


Just because I don't have 800 post doesn't mean I don't utilize the forum, im actually an avid reader and pucharse many products from the vendors on this forum... I'll make sure I remove those reflectors just for you the first chance I get.... Have more respect buddy, you sound like a fool..
