Another kind of detailing

Hello Norway

First let me appologiese for writing in english....but I am just to old to learn norwegian. :lol:

My name is Marius , married with one wife , Roxana, and toghether we have one litle daughter, Ana. I'm a Romanian national that is living in UK , Wigan. I want to say that I am absolutly amazed by the talent that you show in car detailing and to say that I am a big fan of all of you ...I find your work absolutly inspiring. It seems that I am not the only Romanian that loves your work :wub: ...if you follow the links bellow you will see what I'm talking about .... This is a small community of romanian amateurs and pro detailers ....and here are the links:

http://www.detailing-club.ro/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=36&order=desc&page=2 .....a nice video collection of the Brynjar and Bernhard work

Using Google translate will make reading abreaze ....and if you want to say hello or just to show your work we also have an English section here:

http://www.detailing-club.ro/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=60

I am an amateur detailer who recently invested a nice amount of money in some gear ...but until I will be able to show some love to my Mazda6 2.5i 2008 model....I have to spend my time doing some weird kind of detailing ....just to not loose my touch

Ok...now with your permition I would like to present you some of my work that I've been doing in the last couple of days ...this jobs were also shown on DW, Showroom section, and have been received pretty well by the detailing community ...but speacily by the wyfes of some of the members :lol:

So here we go:

If you will follow exactly the steps that I'm doing you will enjoy great results...

Also doing this operation on daily basis you will notice an increase in the quality of your personal life and you will mentain the hapines of your wife, girl friend, mother or grandmother at high levels...:lol:

Products used:

dsc0480ly.jpg

dsc0481y.jpg

dsc0482wk.jpg

.... probably now you are thinking that I need a doctor...well hold your horses

Before going any further I strongly advise you not to use this products on your own car

Before:

dsc0483g.jpg

First step - let the water flow - fairly warm water at around 40 degree will do just fine

If you don't have acces to water use ONR - but that will be at your own risk

dsc0484iu.jpg

A small amount of liquid detergent will be enough for 3 to 4 dishes and a couple of spoons :lol: ... Remember the most important rule in detailing - LESS IS MORE

dsc0485pf.jpg

Pump up the cleaning sponge several times to create a litle bit of foam

dsc0486ar.jpg

Now washing is starting: - using low to medium pressure:D start wash the items from the sink - remember the liquid detergent is your best friend :lol: ...let it work for you. Do not hurry ...take your time

If you find contaminations tough to remove with the soft side of the sponge ... please feel free to use de rough side of the sponge ...but take great care not to inflict any unnecessary scratches ...:lol:

dsc0487bm.jpg

dsc0488q.jpg

Now comes the most important step in my techniq witch I advise you to follow if you want to have the same kind of results that I have:p

DO NOT WASH OFF THE DETERGENT THAT IS SITING DOWN ON THE DISHES ... Let me repeat that because many of you are asking me why my dishes are so sparkling clean and yours are not ... lol. You think that you are using my techniq ...but you don't . Whatever techiniq that you think that you are using, that is definetly not my techniq (LOL Junkman style ... I love you man - you are my hero) :

So let me repeat : DO NOT WASH OFF THE DETERGENT THAT IS SITING DOWN ON THE DISHES

You will ask me why ?...:lol: I'll tell you why : The liquid detergent needs time to deal with various contaminations that are present on the surface of your dishes and spoons ... in order to have a proper clean and contamination free surface :D If you will wash off the detergent before allowing it to sit down and disolve the fat for lets say 5 to 10 minutes you will not have the same results as I have.... and you will ask me why...:lol:

So..put your dishes with the detergent still present on their surface in a separate place :

dsc0489zu.jpg

Now let me tell you about how exactly i do my dishes ...well all my dishes are geting the same treatment :- using my washing sponge I'm doing circular movements and in an overlapping maner to insure an uniform spread of the detergent on the surface of the dishes :lol: - for those new to detailing world - its like applying wax on your car surface... probably some of you are still remember The Karate Kid movie - the same type of movement:D

dsc0490e.jpg

As you can see on the following picture, all my dishes are siting on a separate place with the detergent doing his job:

dsc0491rf.jpg

Leftovers siting nicely in my sink

dsc0492bu.jpg

The dispose of the leftovers in a eco friendly maner

dsc0493ju.jpg

dsc0494uo.jpg

After we let the detergent to do his job for 5 to 10 min comes the pleasent part - Cleansing with warm or cold water - depends of your personal preference.

5 to 7 seconds is enough to cleanse the detergent residues from your dishes

dsc0495a.jpg

dsc0496y.jpg

dsc0497va.jpg

And here are the results .... Cristal Clear

dsc0498v.jpg

dsc0499g.jpg

A pic of the water sheeting off beautiful :D

dsc0500gj.jpg

After washing and cleansing follows the sink inspection

dsc0501x.jpg

dsc0502w.jpg

dsc0503fi.jpg

Everything is dripping wet ... :D not good in this kind of detailing ...do not panic and take a big breath and start drying with a kitchen drying cloth. Also you can use a QD as a drying aid:D

dsc0505ze.jpg

dsc0506n.jpg

Final pics :

dsc0507zv.jpg

dsc0504ku.jpg

Job Done :D

If you do exactly what I did I can guarantee that you will have some action tonight :D

My personal recomandation is to do this kind of detailing at least once a day ... LSP is optional

Total cost 4 to 5 pounds and 10 to 15 minutes (15 min if you take pictures ) or maybe more... but the experience is priceless : :Dlol:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After I have shown my work on DW ...3 days ago....something amazing happend ....here is what I mean by that:

In the last 48 hours I have received a tone of thank you e-mails from a lot of happy ladies :rolleyes: from all over the world, over 1378 e-mails and still counting. It seems that you have followed my example and managed to successfully apply my dish detailing techniq :lol: ... As a result a lot of women are happier and have more time to spend with the loved ones :argie:.... But they have asked me what to do in return for you guys .

Well girls I know exactly what to do :D . Gather around, grab a chair and a cup of coffee or tea and ....follow my drift :)

When your loved ones come home from work ...or whatever ... try to steal their shoes, after they take them off their feet, without being seen by them. Ok... now, if you share your life with a special kind of "animal" ... who has the bad habit of walking all over the house with their shoes on their feet ...I have a more extreme techniq to make them take their shoes off.... all you have to do is ....( well do you remember the SNATCH movie????...with Brad Pit, Jason Statham, Vinnie Jones )... to place a real good punch on their chin ::lol: ..as shown in the following video:

For a nice "Matrix" effect put some body weight in the punch

Well ...lets stop ****ing:censored: arround and start to work

You will need the following products or similar ones. Usually you can find them stored in the garage:D, somewhere on the shelves :lol:

dsc0482zo.jpg

This is how their shoes looks like:...

dsc0431n.jpg

If your loved ones have some stinky feet problems I advise to use some protection equipment

tornadow.jpg

Some before pics of my shoes :

dsc0432d.jpg

dsc0433m.jpg

As you can see their is some nice coats of dirt and some colour transfer from my Levi's

dsc0434m.jpg

dsc0436oj.jpg

Tones of dirt and some deep scraches (or as your loved one likes to call them : RDS :lol:) and stone chips ;)

dsc0437rv.jpg

dsc0438k.jpg

First you will need something like AG Interior Shampoo - a powerfull but in the same time gentle pre-wash solution to shift some dirt off :

dsc0439e.jpg

Start to mist some of the pre-wash solution on your loved ones shoes

dsc0440li.jpg

dsc0441j.jpg

dsc0443r.jpg

Now with a detail brush begin to gently agitate the pre-wash solution, in order to help the pre-wash to shift the dirt off

dsc0444b.jpg

After you fully agitated the pre-wash ...is time for the first rinse off : ... you will need to put some water in a sprayer and rinse off thoroughly the shoes By now you should see some improvements :thumb:.If so ...Good for You. If you don't ... God help you

dsc0445nk.jpg

dsc0446g.jpg

dsc0447rr.jpg

After the rinse off process is time for driyng with the help of MF :D

dsc0453za.jpg

As you can see ... the shoes seems to be reborned allready

dsc0454b.jpg

dsc0455xf.jpg

dsc0456q.jpg

Nice improvement but we are not quite there yet... a lot of work is still ahead of us :)

Now is time to put at work the Leather Cleaner:lol: .... Mist some generous amont of cleaner on the shoes and let it to do his job for a couple of minutes .

In the meantime please feel free to do your fingernails or....

dsc0458nd.jpg

dsc0459t.jpg

After you finished your fingernails :rolleyes: please come back and with the help of a mild stiff brush gently begin to agitate the leather cleaner :D

dsc0460n.jpg

dsc0462m.jpg

Here is a nice 50/50 of the rear "tyres" ... not perfect but we are geting close girls

dsc0463b.jpg

Now ...to make things a litle better go back to AG Interior Shampoo and with the help of....

dsc0465b.jpg

...a litle stiff detailing brush from Meguiar's :D ....

dsc0466ll.jpg

dsc0467e.jpg

dsc0468e.jpg

... you can achieve some nice results :D ...not perfect but a huge improvement

dsc0469iv.jpg

dsc0470n.jpg

If you are not happy with the results... give another hit with AG Interior Shampoo :buffer: ...for an almost perfect finish :doublesho

dsc0471tf.jpg

...and for a perfect white with no more colour transfer

dsc0474uk.jpg

Once again is time for a rinse off :P ...

dsc0476kr.jpg

dsc0477qj.jpg

... and drie off

dsc0478g.jpg

Well girls if you made it so far I am realy proud of you.

What follows may be a litle scary for you...but please trust me 'cause there is a logic behind this ... maybe a litle dodgy but never the less

For those of you with a fainted heart ....just close your eyes and through the shoes in the oven:doublesho

dsc0479v.jpg

Set the timer for 5 min...

dsc0480e.jpg

... at 50 degrees

dsc0481sv.jpg

Well...that's a perfect finish :D...what a great job you've done ....I'm really proud of you sisters

Now..were you think you're going sister??? Yeah ...I'm talking to you ...:lol: ...There is still a lot of work to do.

dsc0483xk.jpg

Once the shoes are out from the oven...the pores of the leather are opened, ready to receive a litle love:argie: as a Leather Cream via a foam pad

dsc0485x.jpg

dsc0486t.jpg

dsc0487pa.jpg

WOW....what a lovely finish

dsc0488n.jpg

With a MF cloth ...gently buff off for a nice finish

dsc0489gh.jpg

Now ...comes some crazy steps....First let's put some dressing on the "tyres" :lol:

dsc0491r.jpg

Spray some tyre dressing :doublesho on a MF cloths and dress the "tyres"

dsc0492.jpg

dsc0493j.jpg

WOW...:

dsc0494c.jpg

dsc0496hk.jpg

And now ...for the grand finale ...it's time for the LSP ... For a durable protection let's play a litle with Collinite 915 Marque D' Elegance Wax applied by hand.

dsc0497pn.jpg

Gently glide your fingers over the wax ...and gently apply it on the shoes ...Don't be scared is just like applying bath oil on your baby's skin . :lol:

dsc0501p.jpg

Let it on the shoes for 15 to 20 min before buffing it off with a MF cloth :D

dsc0502v.jpg

Now ... do an act of greatness to the rest of the humankind and mist inside the shoes some AG Autofresh :lol: :lol: :lol:

dsc0504r.jpg

Now lets all anjoy the afters :D

dsc0505w.jpg

WOW....amazing :lol:

dsc0506k.jpg

dsc0507y.jpg

dsc0508p.jpg

dsc0509n.jpg

And lets show off with some beading pics :lol:

dsc0513cm.jpg

dsc0514e.jpg

And my favourite pic ...my hairy legs and lovely shoes :lol:

dsc0515n.jpg

Job done girls ...you did a great job :D ...I am really proud of you :lol:

Nice job - and not that crazy: I did a quick one on my Nike Classics before the season, used Autoglym Leather Cleaner and found it worked just great.

Glad to see that you like my work:)

I realy appreciate your nice comments...and thank you for worrying about my health :D

As far as I know there shouldn't be serious concerns about using a little wax on leather. Initial I was thinking about using Werkstat Acrylic ...as I know it does wonders on light colourd cars. My car is gray:) . But I like my trainers and I wasn't prepared to ruin them yet...just yet .... who knows what tomorrow will bring B)

Nice to meet you all

Actually not that bad :) First time i bought a car wax, i spent about 90 min just spraying water in the sink, just to see it bead. It was a price less moment, when i turned around to see my girlfriends face as i was standing there, and then the hour after while i still was standing there :D
