Default 2004 WRX OSM Receives Joan Rivers Treatment

I have been traveling for a week and a half and the WRX needed some care. Basically it has hit hardcore pollen season here in northern florida and the car is hard to keep clean. Also, I guess I parked a little close to the neighbors sprinkle system as I received some nice hard water spots. Also, you will see where a bird tagged my car as well. THis all lead to an excuse to use a lot of new detailing materials I have been aquiring over the last months.

Wheels:
P21S TAW (link here)
Swissvax Wheel Brush (link here)
Boars Hair Brush (link here)
Uber Spoke Brush (link here)
OptiBond Tire Gel (link here)

Car:
Dawn Pre Wash
Uber Blue Clay Bar (link here)
Adam Detail spray as clay lube (link Here)
Rinse
Werkstat Prime Strong (link here)
Wash DP Xtreme Foam Auto Wash (link here)
Werkstat Acrylic Jett Trigger (link here)
Duragloss Aquawax (link here)

Impressions:

Clay:
First time using Detailers Domains Clay and it is really easy to work with. Also, Adams makes for a good lube.

Soap:
DP Xtreme Foam Wash is a great product to use. It foams up really well and has a great cleaning ability.

Werkstat Products:
Werkstat prdoucts where all really easy to work with. Prime applys very easy and does a good job of getting some scratches down and leaves a nice finish. I will say there is some dusting to this product and I was just hand applying. I am not sure what the dusting is like with a DA or Rotary. However, the dusting was minimal and not a big deal. Acrylic Jett Trigger is an awesome product. Very easy to apply and had a great sheen. We shall see how long it lasts as I did three coats about in a 36 hour span.

Duragloss Aquawax:
Durgloss Aquawax has gotten a lot of praise over at autopia for great shine and durability as a spray wax. I decided to try it out and I too was surprised at how well it performed as a spray wax. For durability time will tell.

-Big thanks to Detailer's Domain and Autogeek for providing top quality products for great prices.

-Any comments or constructive criticism welcomed.

I wish I had some more pictures but was pressed for time, detailing in Florida heat. The two days I was detailing we had temps well above 80.

I will try to snap some later this week with sporting some meaty new tires
