  1. Ben, if you're after a good detailing kit with a safe buffing machine, feel free to send me an email: info@t-wd.net Also happy to offer any advice to help you get your car sorted as I do this with many interstate clients
  2. Jayde from Dulvari Prestige. Tell him Raj from TWD sent you. 0414 501 706
  3. I'd definitely recommend Morrie from Reflection Perfection
  4. We use and recommend Nanolex Ultra Paint and Wheel sealant. After sealing, you would only need to use pH neutral car wash on the wheels so you don't remove the protective sealant. Here's an example of a couple of Wheel & Caliper combinations we've done with the Nanolex Sealant: Definitely! I've even used the same method on Ferrari F40 wheels.
  5. Topic: How to clean wheels during your maintenance wash. Needed: 1. Hose with a decent amount of pressure 2. A non-acidic wheel cleaner (eg Duragloss All Wheel Cleaner, Autoglym Acid Free Wheel Cleaner, P21S Wheel Cleaner, Wolf's Brake Duster) 3. SAFE Wheel brush (or perhaps a selection of them) and a spare Microfibre wash mitt (eg Daytona wheel brush, Vikan soft brush, Wheel Woolies) 4. Bucket of water (even warm-medium hot water if possible) (If you want to clean your splash guards, then use a diluted multi-purpose cleaner) Procedure (can be removed or still mounted to the vehicle): 1. After rinsing, take your dirty wheels and apply your favourite non-acidic wheel cleaner to the wheel. Make sure you include the tighter areas including in between spokes, inside the barrel, wheel nut areas and calipers. 2. Let the wheel cleaner sit for 2-3 of minutes. Some solutions turn red or change colour which means they are working in with the dirt. Others don't. 3. Use your safe soft bristled wheel brush. The Daytona Speed brush is fantastic because it has soft bristles and rubber parts so it will not mark or scratch your wheels. Get inside the spokes and in the barrel with the brush. Your brush should also be able to clean the calipers. 4. Use the microfibre mitt to clean the face and any other areas that you may have missed. This is where you can also use another sponge or brush to clean the splash guards. 5. Simply rinse off and dry the wheels. You may notice the surface rust on your rotors. The next drive should fix that problem. TIPS: - Let your brakes cool down before washing. You don't want to risk damaging your rotors - If need be you can apply a light mist of spray wax on your wheels for that added shine and protection - If your exhausts are dirty, use the wheel cleaner & wheel brush to freshen them up (doesn't apply for carbon fibre or ceramic exhaust tips) - Frequent cleaning (once every week) will restrict heavy contamination - If you end up sealing your wheels with a quality sealant, then use pH neutral car wash when cleaning your wheels We've taken a few before, during and after photos of some of the wheels we've cleaned. No other magic tricks, just the same technique as discussed here.

  7. Exterior: Pre rinse with Snow Foam Paintwork washed with 2 bucket method (use few capfuls of general purpose cleaner) to clean surface, Decontaminated & clayed with Dodojuice clay bar & lube. Areas taped up with 3M blue painters tape First stage of correction with Wool pad on Rotary machine & Menzerna Polish (Aggressive) - Most of the cutting/correction is done here. Second stage with Orange Pad on Dual Action machine & Menzerna Polish (Medium) - Swirls left from wool pad are removed here & induce depth/gloss Third stage with White pad one Dual Action machine & Menzerna Polish (Fine) - Finer swirls removed and gloss restored Complete wash of entire vehicle again, now focusing on entire car. Wheels cleaned with Duragloss acid free wheel cleaner and safe wheel brushes All other areas are cleaned - under guards, etc Sealed with Wolf's Hard Body Nanosealant Interior: Vacuumed and interior/seats cleaned with Einzett 1Z Interior cleaner. Then Leather conditioned with Duragloss Conditioner. When cleaning the interior, we use a small soft brush in conjunction with the cleaner to assist in extracting dirt.
