Re: What did you do today Detailing related?

Tried out a bird **** remover that won't remove your wax or sealant.




Subject: A decent size puddle of crap sat on my paint for about 4-6 hrs.









Product: It is a ready to use type of product straight out of the bottle without any diluting.









I let the product sit on the paint for 30 secs. Before lightly picking it up with a MF towel I gave the towel a couple sprays to add more lubrication/cleaning power. First pass:














Second pass as the product is breaking down the bird crap making it easier to dislodge it, and not having to scrape it off causing scratches









Third pass. All gone









Used some quick detailer to do a final wipe down. Quarter was placed to help the camera focus and to spot the location









I got lucky on this area with no bird acid etching, only swirls.









The other spot on my door is another story... Deep etching after bird crap wiped off









After using the most aggressive compound I have and rubbing it by hand this is the result. I will go over it with a machine to see if I can improve it, otherwise it will require wetsanding to level out the paint again.









The lesson bird crap teaches us is to wipe it off ASAP, and do not even let it sit an hour especially in the sun because the radiant heat will help speed up the etching process.

Re: What did you do today Detailing related?

Cleaned the interior of my car this morning/afternoon. I was just going to wipe down the dash and vacuum, but the cleaning itch kicked in and I did the whole interior except cleaning the carpet.




Started with the floor mats














Then started doing the whole interior wipe down with Optimum Power Clean at 4:1 ratio



















Working on the dash and vents
























140k miles of dirt and oils from our skin on the steering wheel



















Afterwards I cleaned the inside of the windows with Meg glass cleaner at 1:10 ratio. That ended my morning cleaning and time to eat lunch and watch some football.

Washed it yesterday, and sprayed the underside. I really need to attack my leather again with leather conditioner.

I did not know this, I've just been using a damp terry cloth. So there are cleaners that are safe for window tint.

Re: What did you do today Detailing related?

Glad to see more posts in here! Funny, I tackled my interior as well this weekend. Conditioned all my leather, vacuumed everything, didn't take pics though.

FYI: When something says dilute 1:10, it means 1 part of 10 parts (total). For instance, 1 part solution to 9 parts water.

Thanks for catching the typo. I'm also glad it's picking up a little bit. Can I ask what conditioner you used for your leather seats? Does it just protect? Or does it make it more supple?
