Paint Protection.

Today I started to apply paint protection to the Overland.
Started with a wash, then applied Maquires Claybar with the Quick Detail.
Although the paint "looked good" before I started, it was surprising to see the grit that accumulated in the clay.
So far did the bonnet and front guards.
After the claybar, I gave it another quick wash, then applied Autoglym Extra Gloss Protection.
Although my wife could not see any difference, (late afternoon, after her wiping the back of her hand over the areas that were done, and those not yet done, she could definitely feel the difference.
Also Scotch Guarded the carpets.
Tomorrow, I will attack the remainder of the car, then post some images.

Re: Paint Protection.

Dealer offered me the same protection inside and out for $3k. You can buy a lot of polish and scotchguard for $3k!

Re: Paint Protection.

Some call the detailing process a "labour of love", others like me simply call it "labour". Though I do enjoy the satisfaction of a sparkling, shinning machine that keeps its sheen for many months.

I love the way water beads on a car which is a good sign of protection from the elements.

Found this thread from one of our American cousins which I'm sure we'll all relate to:
My name is Rick and I am a beadaholic

So allypally uses Maguires, has anyone tried any of the products in the above beadaholic thread? I've seen Zaino's mentioned a few times along with Collinite 915.

Zaino's absolutely the best leather cleaner and conditioner. I went through the whole range at Supacheap but nothing comes close to Zaino's. Big fan of Autoglim high gloss polish but the best thing I found for real deep long lasting shine (sounds like a hair shampoo ad), no swirl marks etc....is Mothers Carnauba Wax. That was on my last car, gunmetal grey. It really enriched the colour. I never used a wash'nwax once the car was polished, only a cheapy shampoo with high suds. Wax lasted for months.

Re: Paint Protection.

Zaino's is top of class, and if I feel like adding wax, and I will probably do it 1 panel at a time, Zaino's would be on my list.

I fgot all the panels done with the protection now, so only thing to do is get some photos. Maybe next weekend.

Re: Paint Protection.

I use Wolfgang products. Polish, car wash, leather cleaner & leather conditioner. Does a brilliant job, used these products for years, keeps my vehicles like new. Care care products are a little like motor oil, everyone has a favorite.

Re: Paint Protection.

Yeah or as they say....Same Shit different smell.
I have a mix if Meguires, Autoglym and Zanio. They all work and IMHO none are better than the other. I usually choose what ever is on special in the premium range.

Re: Paint Protection.

I havent seen Zaino's or Collinite anywhere. Where do you get them from?

Meguiars Gold Class is what I used on the Jackaroo, and now the TT gets Meguiars NXT. A friend of mine swears by Mothers Carnauba.

Re: Paint Protection.

The Zaino was given to me by a friend who won it. It was some facebook thing last year that he entered.
