內外大清洗

DA polisher 終於到手, 天氣又好, 尋晚放工去左幫我 upgrade ECU 果間車房度做 detailing, 總共做左 10 個鐘, clay - compound - polish - sealant 仲以為有 polisher 會好做好多, 可以未熟習關係, 做得比人手仲慢, 同埋都係好攰. 由於雞手鴨腳, 所以唔得閑一路做一路影, 下次上 wax 再去影室內照. 去相之前, 有以下問題想問問各師兄:

1. 有冇好方法去走乾左o既樹汁 (i.e. tree sap)? 呢個係尋晚導致做左咁耐o既原因, 大家仲記得o既話大約一個月前我用人手 clay - 打 polish - 上sealant, 果時無咁多樹汁, 今次發現勁多, 可能而家百花齊放, 我車位已經唔o係樹下, 都有成10個車位 distance, 但都中, 揸車有時又中到. 我尋晚有個方法, 係車房老細教 ge, 佢以前都係做detailing, 做左十幾年, 有d料下, 而家轉幫人貼 3M stone guard 同埋改車為主, 佢教我用 gasline anti-freeze, 真係掂, 上少少一抹搞掂, 不過我好怕傷到 paint, 所以做完一少位我即係噴番d quick detailer 保住先, 等全車搞好晒先 polish, 如是者 repeat 又 repeat 咁樣做左好耐. 我知香港o既你地唔會用到 gasline anti-freeze, 咁請問你地有咩方法呢?

2. 第一次用 polisher 真係要適應一下, 開頭好多時都囉唔平塊 pad, 好在無入到 Flex, 如果唔係就難搞囉

3. 尋晚搞好晒之後, 見到個 result 有8-9 成o既紋明明清走晒, 但係今日o係太陽底下睇又會睇到少少 wor, 不過影相出黎又見唔到wor, 請問正唔正常呢? 係咪我大過完美主意定係我未真正 remove 到 d swirl 呢?

請看相

Nice work and nice photos!

Regarding tree sap:
I rarely have the tree sap problem because I dont park under trees.  If I see any bomb spot I will use some QD to wipe it off immediately without problem...

Anyway I have been using Autoglymn Bug & Tar Remover, but I dont think it is easy to find in North America.
Basically any bug, tar remover, or even soak with APC diluted, soak with clay lube and wipe with clay should be able to take care if your car's protection layer is in good shape.  Just DONT USE PINNACLE BUG SPONGE.  If I were you, I will mist some DP Rinseless and let it soak to see if it works since I believe your wax layer is fresh.

Edit:
I took my time and let my car outside for an afternoon, and discovered some yellow spots on my car which I believe is so-called tree sap?
Here is the yellow spot:

1 Wipe with a new piece of 3M blue clay:


Tools used:  clay lube, 3M Blue Clay, MF x 1.
Sorry but I actually throw the piece of clay and MF away after trying for a few spots..

thanks for the insight. 睇落你果D樹汁好 soft, 我果d係好sticky, 可以話係樹膠之類咁, 如果仲係fresh, 只少少 detailer 之後仲要摔幾摔先抹得走, 乾左o既話簡直好似熱溶膠咁

另外, 你覺得我架車係咪未清走晒d swirls 呢? 其實好似 kenfung ching 果個 condition 或者你架車o既 condition, o係太陽下反光係咪仍然見到紋架?

我唔知係咪中左呢個 post o既毒, 呢架 gti 真正無晒紋, 不過唔知太陽下睇會唔會都係有紋

This is how the Alfa looks like after a thorough polishing and multiple layer of wax under the Sun.
If you see swirls and marks under the Sun, then you have not removed them all.


However, please be reminded that it is not practical for one to keep a daily driver 100% swirl free.
Driving on road will give you some swirls already (bcos of sand blown onto paint by wind etc)...
So I do not recommend you to strip all the wax and polish on your car now just to deal with the swirls.
Wait until a few months later when its time for your next detail.

yes sir , the next polish will probably be before winter. From now on, after each wash and clean, i am going to apply WG spray sealant or when i order the optimum opti-seal, i will give it some thin thin spray
