    05 Mini Cooper

    Washed with CG Citrus Wash, lambs wool mitt, 2BM
    clayed with blue Clay Magic and ONR lube
    first stage polish was with M105/Megs Maroon pad/PCXP
    second stage was PO85RD/White LC pad/Hitachi Rotary
    LSPs:
    UPGP(cured for 6hrs.)
    topped with CG Pete's 53

    Tires and wheels were cleaned and sealed with:
    Pakshak TWC
    Megs Wheel Brightner
    Tuf Shine clear coat

    Used MX7 metal polish on the chrome and MX7 plus on the windows to remove the water spots.

    Exterior black trim was cleaned with M39 and used a combo of megs HD, in and out, and Megs Trim detailer.

    I also did a wipe down of the engine bay with Pakshak APC and dressed with megs HD (dang, i should buy it already! Im using it a lot!)

    I didn't get too many pics of the interior, but I did wipe everything that was dirty down with Pakshak APC and dressed with NXT Trim Detailer and the painted areas with Duragloss 105. I need a leather conditioner and cleaner. Megs one step leather care isn't cutting it. Speaking of Duragloss, I also sealed the head and tail lights with it.

    Looks very good. The paint looks great.
    quality creates its own demand

    Very nice work....a lot of water spots to deal with.

    I liked the cool wash mit....The Golden Fleece.
