Beading!

Post by Dusted » Wed Jun 28, 2017 7:54 pm

Did my first detail on my 140i in SB late last week and finished off over the weekend.

First bit of rain in Brum today since and the car looked stunning with some lovely beading effect on the roof and bonnet.....

Pic below.

I used Carbon Collective Oracle nano coating and despite putting too much on and vigorous buffing to remove the residue (less is significantly more using that stuff) it looks pretty nice. I used a quick detailer last night to see what it's like too - Chemical Guys Hybrid v07 - simple and quick to use.

Who knew that REALLY spending hours cleaning and detailing would be so therapeutic?!

Oh and don't tell Mrs Dusted how much I've spent on detailing products. She would not be happy!

You're more than welcome to get mine looking like that :lol:

Good work and always worth the effort isn't it?

100% agree. I genuinely got a great deal of satisfaction from it and feel a sense of pride when I see the car nowadays!

If the weather hadn't been so bleddy awful up here, I'd have been out giving mine the works.

I'm not exactly renowned on here for consistently cleaning my car and probably only give it the full beans once or twice a year in the cleaning stakes.

I'm sure there used to be a 'beading picture' thread on here at one time and people competed to see who could achieve the smallest beads - some of the pictures were gorgeous. The more 'pert' the beads the better, but yours are a close runner without a doubt, though if you're obsessive about this sort of thing I reckon it'll only be a matter of time before you manage to achieve nipple-like beading.

If so, post up, as it's always nice to see what can be done.
