Hi all,

Welcome to detailing thread.

This is where we all learn detailing to make our beloved cars cleaner and shinier.

So I got basic step here which you can follow on this one and all comes from Meguiar's video, since they got the easiest to understand and how to apply on our car.

If there's any question please ask here, so that we can learn together.

Thank you

Nice work,

Particularly with the products used.

a few of us other detailing hobbyists hang out from time to time at http://www.detailparadise.com.au

I'd post up a link to my last examples thread using the Autobitre lance and DP foam for washing and after a polish with a Bosch RO and Wolfgang/Pinnacle products, but my hosted pics have been deleted :roll:

Wow, Wolfgang/Pinnacle products, I can't afford that one, too expensive mate. LOL

But, thanks mate, really appreciate it.

Yeah should check out the thread we had a while back titled "stupid rain" hehe. For that reason I am not washing my car until tomorrow afternoon, after the rains stop.

So no use washing your car.

Oh well, what can I do

Your car has GC8 WRX wheels. You put them on or did it come with those?

Hmm, it comes like that.

Is it a problem? Is it not a standard wheels? Should it get 17" for the safety pack?

Btw, do you know the standard 16" tyre size?

Thanks
