Detailers Directory of recommendations

Post by Mbadger77 » Sat Feb 18, 2017 2:53 pm

I've been looking for a detailer locally but to be honest haven't found much.
Anyone seen any useful websites or know of anyone in the Richmond / Twickenham area.
Will probably get my car done again as I stupidly swirl marked one whole side and it's bugging me.
Want ceramic done again.
Found one not far called waxy clean but they seem to have closed down and the other in reading which is bit far for a 2 day job,

Can I ask how you did this?

Curious, as I am nervous of this 'two bucket' wash method for doing just that - having done a lot of research, I'm going back to multiple Mitts and one/no bucket.....

The whole point of two buckets is to try to reduce the amount of dirt you drag across the car. Try changing the dirty cloth cleaning water during the wash and also make sure you only wash the car with sideways motions rather than swirls. Regular dipping of mitt without too much pressure should avoid damage.

Mbadger77 - Can I ask what ceramic coating you had on your car before that you managed to damage? I would have thought it pretty hard to create marks through the coating?
