a Sunday detailing

Washed and put a second coat of Zaino on my new 330i. No swirl marks yet, but there are some small "spots" of discoloration that I'm a bit concerned about.

So:

* Washed Car Zaino Z7 Show Car Wash with two buckets for soap and rinse water. Used two wash mits; one for top of car, one for lower body panels. Used P21S Wheel Cleaner on wheels.

* Dried Car Used California water blade and 100% cotton bath towel to lightly dab left over water.

* Prepped Car Zaino Z6 Gloss Enhancer Spray on all body panels. Applied with microfiber cloths.

* Polished Car Zaino Z2 Show Car Polish on all body panels. Let dry for 2 hours (needed to wash my microfiber cloths) and removed polish with microfiber cloths, making sure to use horizontal motions (as air would flow over car) rather than circular motions.

Total work time: 2 Hours (4 hours between start and finish)
