What's your detailing method?

Post by Peter9588 » Tue Nov 21, 2017 9:20 pm

Hi all,

I'm curious to know everyone's full detail step by step method?

Ideally from traffic film remover application through to polish and sealant?

If people could list the products they use at each stage that would be even better!!

Thanks in advance,
Pete
