    As some of you may have gathered I'm currently in the 'Land of Far Far Away' - BiH.

    Travelling 2600 miles means a lot of brake dust and with temperatures around 26C a lot of tar spots - to say nothing of the huge bug-spatter collection which at 100mph in these temperatures bakes on harder than a cornflake on the rim of yesterday's cereal bowl.

    So Tuesday morning I set to work - taking it nice and easy. I finished the last buffing up of the top protection coats this morning.

    So the rest of the week can now be given over to more serious stuff - like lying in the garden and having BBQs and beers.

    Here's a few pics - apologies about the extreme light and shade - but I can't seem to find a way to reduce the power of the big yellow thing high in the sky.

    The engine bay was done with AutoGlym Engine & Machine Cleaner followed by AG Vinyl & Rubber Care.

    Here's the list of what else I used:

    AG Insect Remover
    AG Shampoo & Conditioner
    AG Tar Remover
    AG Magma
    Billberry Wheel Cleaner
    AG Super Resin Polish
    AG Extra Gloss Protection - 2 coats
    AG Tyre Protector
    BMW Nano Hard Wax - 2 coats
    BMW Gummi-Pflege Rubber Care
    AG Leather Balm
    Plus another product similar to Iron-X which my grandson gave me and I have forget the name of as I decanted it into a smaller bottle to take with me as space for all this detailing kit is a problem.

    Nice! We're having a quick week in Croatia end of May so looking forward to that. That engine bay though, maybe I should pay more attention to mine!

    @Singvogel I take you have a complete selection of detailing products in BiH as well as in Scotland? I expect the boot wouldn't have enough room for suitcases otherwise :cool:

    I gave my engine bay a quick wipe over on Monday and whilst it is not as clean or as thorough as the job that @Singvogel has done it look acceptable

    IMAG0961.jpg

    I used Autosmart G101 to give it a wipe over and then used carpro perl diluted 1:1 with distilled water sprayed on to a microfibre applicator and then wiped over with a clean microfibre, i only spent half an hour on it but it was enough to remove the winter grime

    Chicken pokes - Water beading that had dried with airborne /waterborne dust leaves spotty residue

    Most likely due to dirty clouds or nearby building work, (driving my OCD insane as it’s been going on for seems like an age, very wind direction dependent )

    Eurgh!
    I just googled beading porn.... beading porn was meant as the tight water droplets left after thorough waxing, where a waxed car will have tight water beads and a non waxed car will have large droplets..

    I think not, Kev.

    Youtube is awash with better vids than I could ever make.

    Kind of you to suggest I could do that though, thank you for that.
