Ok guys, the weather is getting nicer, the cars are coming out and you know what that means – its time to get her all nice and shiny. All of that wax on wax off stuff. A nice polish, a buff and a clean from auto detailing Phoenix will do ‘er good for the sunny months to come.
We also know, that with the spring detailing season, comes all of the frustrations of “where’s my (insert whichever product you have lost here) and where the heck is my soap?!”, not to mention the running around everywhere to grab what you have left in the garage or on the counter inside. So I’m going to make it simple for you and tell you exactly what you need to grab and how to set it up so you can get it done and actually enjoy the detailing.
So first thing is first, make sure you’ve got a spot out of the sun to do all of the detailing. You don’t want the sun drying up your car and leaving deposits or hardening your wax too quickly. Then grab a nice, relatively clean tarp to put all of your stuff on. Lay that out near the car (but not right beside) and anchor it down with a couple rocks so it doesn’t bow away with the wind.
Next grab 2 or 3 buckets; 1 for fresh water and one or two to use for other things. Put your carwash soap in one bucket, roll out the hose and make sure its got enough length to easily go all around your car.
Next you are going to bring out your:
- Buffer (optional)
- Polishing compound (optional)
- Claybar (only kind of optional)
- Microfiber towels and Shammy
- Wheel Cleaner
- Tire Dressing
and everything else you need out and lay it all down on the tarp. Now are you wearing flip-flops or sandals? Yes? Clothes that you can get dirty? Yes? Good – now you are ready to get to work on the outside of your car! Don’t forget to completely dry it after washing it to make sure that you’ve removed all of the contaminants from the water and soap.
