Hi all, i wash 2 porsches and one is an outside car. this usally happens weekly. But instead of tradional waxes etc, i uses anything that will allow me to still wash my cars as i get older. my so called detail is below. i cant imagine that i spend more than 2 hours on this.
Detail steps (3 maybe four times a year)
1) Clean the wheels and rubber. i use Mcquirees non acid wheel cleaner (50% diluted). 2) wash the cars with with whatever chemical guys has on sale. 3) uses a no name clay mitt (from amazon) to remove any surface contaiminents 4) do a final wash with a chemical guys stripper soap (its safe on my clear bra) 5) spray on mckees 37 sios 2 spray and wash. i just spray it all over the car and use a micro fiber wash mitt to rub it into the black trim and also the wheels (dont continimat your tools). be sure you wash it with a realy hard stream of water. thats it for the "detail job". The tires are dressed with mckees 37 sios2 wheel shine. It seems to work fine but more than one coat was neeed for my first appication.
weekly wash are:
1) clean the wheels and tire with Mcquirees non acid wheel cleaner (50% diluted) 2) wash the cars with a good quality car soap. 3) dry.
occasionally, the wash will add step 5 from above for a shine boost (every 6 weeks or so).
Also, and i think this is most important, get some 303 (they market it for auto, marine, etc. just get the cheapest thats a protectant. DONT use it on alcartera. I will rub and buff this on the dash (leather and the man made stuff), apply it and buff the rubber (door seals), i apply and buff it on the exterior lights (prevents any yellowing) and i will also use it on the black trim (but i think after the sios spray and wash its not needed). i also apply it to all the platic in the frunck and in the cayman hatch. its applied to all the mccan interior serfuces but for the carpets, roof liners and glass. if you get it on glass - wipe, buff, wipe with a wet mircofiber, buff, wipe with a wet microfiber and buff again. its good stuff.
hope this help someone else.
