1st class turnaround there! I've just started to use CH Hex Logic pads (using 3M compounds). Very impressed with them so far!

Thanks Luke.

I do like the CG Hex pads on the DA. Not thought of using the 3M compounds on them, interesting.

Chris

It's worked well for me so far! I love too try different pads but for some reason I've always stuck with 3M compound (I carry the green, yellow & Blue toped ones, can't remember there names lol) and Dodo Juice Lime Prime. I guess its just a the case that I have always had good results from them so I've stuck with what I know!

Image Chemicals Ali Brite (on the wheels)
Clover Chemicals Viro-Sol (to degrease door shuts, fuel cap ect)
Valet Pro PH Neutral Snow Foam
Image Chemicals Car Shampoo and Dooka Detailing Woolly Wash Pad
Image Chemicals Medium Grade Clay Bar & Chemical Guys Speed Wipe as clay lube
Meguiars Show Car Glaze
Dodo Juice Blue Velvet Hard Wax
Chemical Guys Wheel Guard
Meguiars Clarity Glass Cleaner
Image Chemicals Wet Wall tyre dressing
Peak Metal Polish and 00# wire wall on exhaust tips

Some before pictures:

Re: August's & September's work by LC Auto Clean

Cracking, the aston looks oustanding, the bdm chariot looks interesting, what is it powered by ?

Thanks dude, yeah the Aston is stunning, it had full restoration about 2 years ago and has been well kept since! The KTM X-Bow has the VW/Audi 2.0 TFSI engine, 200bhp as standard tho this one is pusing over 300bhp! Insane power in such a light car!

New car protection, Milton Keynes - Mercedes A180 CDI

New customer and old friend who wanted his 63 plate Mercedes A180 CDI protecting.

The car its self has been on the road a couple of weeks but before that it was on display outside a local gym with stickers all over it.

He picked it up for the local Mercedes dealer and is over the moon with it! Only issue being is it was not well prepped by the valeters there! Lots of polish marks all over it!

Products used in the detail:

Image Chemicals Snow Foam
Valet Pro Dragons Breath fall out remover
Autobrite Direct Detailing Clay
Chemical Guys Speed Wipe quick detailer
Car Skin Deep Clean paint cleaner polish
Autobrite Direct Nano Seal
Dodo Juice Blue Velvet Hard Wax
Chemicla Guys Wheel Guard
Image Chemical Wet Wall tyre dressing
Image Chemical Bio Blue interior/fabric cleaner
GTechniq I1 Smart Fabric
GTechniq L1 Leather Guard
GTechniq G1 & G2 Glass sealant & residue remover
Peek metal polish (Exhaust tail pipes)

So on with the pics:

I started off with the interior which was very clean! It only required a quick vac and dust! Once that was done it was time to apply the protection so I started off with GTechniq I1 Smart Fabric which I applied to the seat fabric, door card fabric, floor mats, carpets and boot carpets.

Next GTechniq L1 Leather Guard was applied to all the leather trim:
