Happy new year, fellow detailers! No detailing today, but have just ordered a Metro Vac Sidekick Blaster from Clean Your Car ready for the next clean.

Been thinking about getting one for sometime to get rid of all that annoying trapped water and drips from mirror housings, grill, wheels etc when I dry the car, and Clean Your Car's 10% new year discount on all their products (other than those already on special offer) gave me the incentive to buy.

If anyone else needs any detailing gear and wants to get the benefit of their discount, it ends at midnight tonight. Discount code; NEWYEAR10

Happy New Year!

Sidekick is a great buy SRGTD.  Good tip about the CYC discount too. :smiley:

I've just upgraded to a MetroVac n Blo vacuum/dryer.  As it does drying duty too, my Sidekick may be up for sale in near future.  Atm someone else has first refusal on it but if not, it may be up for grabs for £40 if anyone is interested?  Its perfect condition but is missing the flat nozzle attachment (the less useful one) but has the long nozzle.  The other one is somewhere in the house but is evading detection atm.

What did you get?

It's a complete drag this constant rain. Hoping for a better weekend for some at TLC, but it ain't looking too promising :-(

Very much like the rest of the country, it has rained on and off everyday Over the Christmas break.

Just replacing old stock but decided to get some wowo stuff (foam applicators, microfibres and drying cloth) and Neil kindly threw in a clay mitt. Bought some valet pro advanced neutral  snow foam as my auto finesse snow foam had finished. I also just stocked up on iron out and I thought I'd try the new auto finesse ultra glaze and the dodo juice supernatural hybrid paste that you recommended to me some time ago.

Tbh I need to get on to my dad. He was talking about constructing a sheltered car port at his house and I can use that when raining.

All the WoWo stuff is truly excellent as you will find out. Let us know what you think of it all, including the AF glaze and DoDo Juice SNH, which is very nice compliment to a wash with the DJ Suernatural Shampoo.  :smiley:

Yes, failing a garage, a covered area for cleaning would be very nice!  Persuade your dad.  :wink:

So of you may know I'm in to detailing, although a bit of a newbie, so any paint issue is unacceptable, certainly one where a respray will be required.

So this is the misalignment on the boot, and what it has caused

This has cut through the clear coat and paint and into the base coat.

Ouch. Is it from something poorly aligned or a distorted panel? Is it still rubbing?

Boot lid is sitting to low and has damaged the bumper. Car is 3 weeks old

That is quite shocking remlapeel.  :cry:

Doesn't matter what the car is, totally unacceptable. What's the dealer said?  Your Jag is looking even more like a candidate for possible rejection now.
