A day in the bay? What does that mean? A day in the detailing bay at Meguiar’s Belgium, a full day of spa welness for a car. Does that sounds a bit more familiar? When I arrived the car wasn’t really dirty as it’s been sunny and dry for over the last month in Belgium. It only had some minor dust on it so we didn’t need to go for the heavy wash. Although we started with the wheels, as you would start every wash of your car.
Let us be clear, this whole blogpost is not an ad, as you guys know I just love to support great brands and the people behind it. I do know Sven (owner of Meguiar’s Belgium) for over 13 years now and we’ve done many great things together. We both come a long way and the Meguiar’s products are just amazing. This is the brand that I’ve been using forever on all my cars, if something is great, there’s no need to change it. We started with this Ultimate Wheel Cleaner, just spray it on and let the product do his work. The products starts working and brake dust is coming off, you’ll see the product becoming purple.
With the Meguiar’s wheelbrush, it’s easy to clean the whole wheel behind the spokes!
Time to rinse!
Once the wheels are rinsed with the jetwash, it’s time to snow foam the car! As you guys know I really like snow foaming cars, it makes cleaning so much easier and safer when it comes to swirls and scratches!
And yes, it’s just so instafriendly when your car is fully foamed and white!
This Meguiar’s Ultimate Snow Foam is just released and I’m really loving it! In the past I used the yellow Ultimate wash & wax shampoo with hot water. It wasn’t really cost effective but it sure did the job – haha!
After snowfoaming it, it’s time to wash the car. By using the bucket with gritt guard and the Meguiar’s wash mitt, you eliminate the chance of swirls pretty much.
And this folks is why I’m here, the famous swirls and scratches which every car has…
On photo they seem rather small but the in real life they are a pain in my eye!
This is the product range that will make any paint into showroom condition again. You start of with the compound, polish and finish with a layer of wax. As my paint wasn’t matte or dull by age, we had enough with only the compound and wax.
This Correction Compound does the magic!
As I already completed the full course of “professional” detailer a few years ago Sven refreshed my memory on how to work with the Dual Action Polisher and how safe it is to use.
With the correct products and know-how you really can’t do anything wrong. Some people still think you can polish through the paint or clear coat but not with the Meguiar’s Dual Action. It’s actually fun to do and it’s even more fun when you see the difference when you finished a panel.
After polishing the whole car (about 6 hours later with 2 people) it’s time put on the wax. We applied it with the Dual Action too! Waxed a whole car in just 15 minutes!
And finished the small corners with a manual application pad.
Time to let the wax cure and have a little BBQ – Jummy!
Once the wax is been taken off and the car is been detailed a last time with a ‘Last Touch’ spray, you can really see the difference of what a full day of work did (with 2 people that is). No more swirls, no more scratches and a deep gloss and amazing metallic.
It’s almost scary to drive the car now as it’s so perfect now! Be sure to check out my latest vlog to see some video of the whole process. If you like to have your own day at the Meguiar’s Belgium bay, it’s possible! Get in touch with the Meguiar’s Belgium guys and have fun!
