Well, it was reasonably cool last night (cool for Phoenix in July, at least - only about 90 degrees after the sun set).
Hadn't give the Fusion a proper wash in a while - mostly just waterless washes since it's just been dusty and sunny - but with the 4th of July festivities, and a recent barrage from the birds, it was time to do a proper wash.
One of the buckets developed a split, and wasn't holding water any more, so instead of a 2-bucket-method wash, I went with a Single bucket and grit guard, with plenty of pre-rinsing. No claying necessary, luckily.
This time around, it was all Eagle-One products, not intentionally, it just worked out that way.
EagleOne Nano " Wax-as-U-Wash
" car wash concentrate in the bucket. LOTS of suds.. I have really grown to love this car wash product. Produces lots of suds, very slick, goes a long way, and smells great... almost like grape. Used a Microtex Platinum
XL microfiber chenille wash pad. Very thick and soft pad.
Followed by a thorough spray rinse, and then dried the car with a PVA " Absorber
" synthetic chamois, then hit the car with a full nose-to-tail application of EagleOne Nanowax Spray Wax
, which I applied with a low-nap microfiber towel, let haze up, and then removed with a deep-nap microfiber towel.
Lastly, I scrubbed down the tires using 5:1 diluted Meguiars D101 All-Purpose Cleaner
and applied a nice coat of EagleOne Tire Shine Gel
which is solvent-free.
Loving the results!
I just have the one picture so far.
