I come seeking wisdom from the oracles of the interwebs...
Planning on doing a full detailing etc on my CX3, myself (I'm old school like that). I've got no issues on the interior, regarding how to go about that etc - leather, vinyl, carpets - straight forward.
So the exterior, I wanted to know or hear the community thoughts on this, particularly the order of things, particularly steps 4 & 5? Then step 7 - no clue what to use?
1) Wash - first hard wash(remove all the grime and build up), then soft wash (conditioning the paint etc), dry -duh.
2) Cleaner wax(Turtle wax - just prefer this cleaner)
3)Scratch remover (meguiars, works best for me), as there are some very fine scratches (such is life of the car).
4)Polish (I say again, Polish - not wax). Haven't decided on this type yet.
5)Wax (most likely Meguairs again - still have enough from the other car).
6)Plastic trim all around - not polished or waxed, just conditioned to make it sparkly clean, with a rich black colour.
7)The rims - not a clue here, first car I owned where the rims look like it's clear coated (OEM Mazda Rims - can see it in my album). If it was a polished metal alloy - no issues, I know how to do that.
Polish/wax will all be done with Orbital polisher.
Thanks in advance, look forward to the responses. I'll post images when I do it. Now I'm just doing the recon.
