Thankyou Kenny! I wanted to come out to lunch on Sunday, but it was miserable weather, so I just parked the car in the garage and put the microfibre cover over it.

Custom Services - Exhaust Pipe Polishing

One of our custom detailing services include exhaust pipe polishing.

Why polish exhaust pipes?

Well, simply because we want them to look good!
You've just polished the rest of the car, dressed your wheels and tyres and glass is clean.
The only thing left to do on the exterior are the exhaust pipes.
Polishing removes water marks, stains and contaminants around the tips. It is a must for show cars!


What methods are used when polishing exhausts?

1. Metal polish paste/wool (main method)
2. Various grades of sanding (depends on material and coating)

Either method can be done by hand or machine.


Do they stay clean for long?

This E46 M3 has stock stainless steel exhaust tips. 18 months after exhaust polishing, they still look like new and they are very easy to maintain

Custom Services - Wheel Waxing

Another one of TWD's custom services - Wheel Waxing

I had a client who purchased set of BBS CH-Rs for his M3 a couple of weeks back and wanted to get them waxed.


Why Wax your Wheels?

It's the same reason we wax our car - Protection (and that extra gloss).
This process helps repel tar, brake dust build up and other road grime from your wheels and inside the barrels.

This system makes cleaning your wheels a lot easier and is recommended for anyone who is looking to purchase or just purchased a new set of wheels, although it can be performed on any wheels.

TWD recommend cleaning your wheels weekly.


What is the Procedure for Waxing your Wheels?

1. Clean your wheels - use an acid free wheel cleaner
2. Dry your wheels using a clean microfibre.
3. Clay the wheels and wipe of any residue.
4. Optional step - light hand polish (non abrasive)
5. Use a pre wax cleaner to ensure the surface is ready for your wax.
6. Apply a wax (wheel wax or car body wax) to every section of the wheel (Face, barrel, behind spokes, lips, etc)
7. Once your wax is cured, wipe of wax.
8. Apply a sealant.

It's really up to you what products you want to use. It's also easier to remove wheels before starting.

Typically, this process should last around 6 - 8 months, depending on driving style, storage, maintenance, etc.


Before:

Notice brake dust on the face & grime and tar build up inside barrels.





After:

Glossy and unmarked.




Fitted to car.

Another service that TWD can provide is headlight restoration.


What is it?

Basically taking a yellow/fogged up/tired old headlight and making them look like new!
(Yes, we usually only work on Prestige Cars, but this is the photographer's Barina!)

How is this restoration achieved?

It's a process of thorough cleaning, involving polishing or wet-sanding.


Pictures:


Take a headlight that looks like this:



And turn it into this:



50/50 shot - Drivers side headlight unrestored. Passenger side headlight restored:



Both headlights restored to new:

Not yet.... I really need to do something though... I've got swirls...

I actually asked you a question in "that other thread" about the Swissvax Blau-Weiss wax...

Is this a good product for my car? And do you know if CarCareProducts can do it as part of the Swissvax Entry Collection?

Obviously, the first step is to get the paint polished and prepared for waxing.

Swissvax products are all generally very good.
The Blau Weiss is the one they made for BMW paints/clearcoats.
The name means "blue white" - ie, BMW badge colours.

I've never used it before but from the reviews I have read over time, and the people who have, it seems to be a very good product. The best thing to do would be to leave it over night (garaged) so it cures nicely. Then buff it all off in the morning.
Then re apply in another 6 mths, just to maintain that protection and lustre.

CCP do SV BW, I'm not sure they would sell it as part of the kit, but there are other products out there that wouldn't cost as much but would do a similar job. Would you like me to recommend some?
Let me know what you're after and I can PM you.

I've got some recommendations from Dec and I've read what others, including yourself, have said but obviously no one has actually seen my car and I don't know enough to know what I should be doing...

Everything I read though seems to be oriented towards either dark or metallic paint. White paint seems to be a bitch to get the most out of...

I'd be happy to hear what you have to say though as I've read some conflicting reports on several products - Dodo Juice, for instance...

Travis, that would be awesome mate. Have to organise the best time to get it from you though as it obviously needs to be done in concert with paint correction/claybar etc...
