Going to be doing a full detail on my new (used) '13 DGM WRX, wanted to just double check that my process is right and I'm not missing anything. Overall the paint is in pretty good shape but there are some light scratches/swirls so I was planning on just compounding the whole car to make it uniform, with extra attention on the scratches.
  1. Wash with dish-soap detergent (2-bucket method)
  2. Clay-bar
  3. Wash with car-wash soap
  4. Compound
  5. Polish
  6. Wax

A couple questions:
  1. Does the dish detergent matter? Anything to avoid (like ones with oxyclean added, etc)?
  2. Is the dishwash soap bad for anything else on the car (rubber/vinyl/etc)?
  3. Will the compound take care of the scratches (Using Meguiar's Ultimate), or do I need an actual scratch remover?
  4. Anything I'm forgetting?

Love the clay bar. Look up AMMO NYC on youtube (if have not already) you will learn a lot about car detailing.

Hey Phil, I finally had time to try out the Griots swirl remover kit I purchased on my moms filthy 06 Honda Accord. I did a full two bucket wash, chamois and microfiber dry, clay (usually break the Mothers clay bar brick into 4 pieces, one quarter of it was already done after just a quarter panel and half the hood lol) and finally started to use the yellow pad and Menzerna FG400. Her car sits outside a lot, not washed or cared for often and had tons of swirls, spiderwebs and hollograms.

I used the FG400 on the whole car and noticed a huge improvment, however I wasnt able to acheive the mirror gloss finishes that you display in your write ups. What did I do wrong? I did a 2x2 area at a time, using the cross pattern described in the manual roughly 6-8 passes, with the paint staying cool/warm to the touch.

Long story short: I polished the glass on a car I inherited with tons of hard water stains on the windows. Lots of polish got on the trim and now it is being difficult to remove.

What method/product can I use to get this off?

I have the griot 6in polisher but I was curious if I could get a bigger backing plate to help cover more area and reduce the time spent on the larger parts of the car.

Do you have anything in stock that would help me out with this short of buying a different polisher with a bigger plate?


Also, what do you recommend using to remove old plastidip that prob didnt have enough coats on it when i put it on my wheels last winter?

Do you carry their new pastidip liquifier ?



Thanks !

sorry for the delay I just saw this now.

the griot's polisher comes stock with a 6 inch backing plate, that is the biggest backing plate you can put on the Griots.

For the most part the biggest backing plate for just about all orbital polishers will be the 6 inch.

I do not carry the Plastidip remover sorry.

Hey detailers,
I just had my car professionally detailed, mind you its a brand new car. A few days later I notice that they got wax on some of my trim areas, like the sunroof surround and antenna surround. What can I go to get rid of the wax? I even told them to be mindful of those places beforehand. I'm irritated, I knew I should've done it myself. Need help. Any suggestions. I do know there is stuff out there to make it look better, but how do I get rid of the residue for good?

can you take a photo of it, typically you can use an apc and a brush to gently agitate and remove it, (felt) or if it's rubber you can use apc and a mf towel and wipe it off.
