New Car Prep: Peugeot 308 VTi
A short write-up of a new car prep which involves some light polishing as well as protection on paint, wheels and interior.
Wheels were cleaned with Wolf’s Chemicals Deironizer, wheel wells and tires cleaned with Osren Degreaser FX.
My old soft brush from Autogeek is pretty worn out already since it bunches up in the middle as a result of using it to clean the lugnut area.
So I used some of the new ValetPRO brushes, thanks again Greg!
The chemical resistant brush (the one in the back) seems nice, as the bristle is not as hard as Autoglym’s brush and not as soft as a hair brush, so no more tangling like my old brush.
However, on first use, the bristles seems to be a bit too long and slides around the place you are trying to clean, not very controllable, I think it would be better if the bristles were a tad shorter.
Conversely, the ValetPRO long reach brush was a joy to use on the back of the spokes.
Body is washed with ONR and clayed with ONR at clay lube dilution ratio.
The paint was really in a good condition already, it just had some odd machining holograms and mild swirl marks.
Paint was polished with:
1. M105 / Lake Country White Polishing Pad / Makita 9227C @ ~1500rpm
2. GTechniq P1 Nanoscopic Polish / Lake Country White Polishing Pad / Dodo Juice Das 6 Dual Action Polisher @ Speed 5
Swirl free before LSP.
Paint is then protected with Wolf’s Chemicals Body Wrap.
Wheels with Wolf’s Chemicals Nano Rim Sealant.
Interior wiped down and carpets protected with GTechniq i1 Smart Fabric to make cleaning easier in the case of spills.
Finally, paint is wiped down with some Meguiar’s Quik Detailer before collection.
Thanks for looking and as usual, feel free to leave any comments below. Have a great week everybody!
