HOW WE BUFF & POLISH YOUR CAR
1. Weekly washing of black paint is recommended
To wash and dry your vehicle, use microfiber cloths and a car wash mitt with a premium quality car shampoo. If you wish to wash your car in direct sunlight, park the vehicle in a shady area and let it cool in the shade before washing. Use the 2-bucket method if you don’t have access to a garden hose.hose.hose. One bucket should be filled with clean water and the other with washing solution. Ensure the wash cloth is constantly rinsing in clean water to prevent scratches and swirls from appearing. Before applying car shampoo, thoroughly wash the vehicle well if it has been covered in dirt or mud. Start by washing the roof, trunk, and hood of the car from top to bottom. Make sure to rinse the wash cloth in clean water after you have cleaned each section of the vehicle. Work your way up to the lower parts of the vehicle. The last parts to be cleaned are the wheels and tyres. Rinse the exterior thoroughly after washing it to remove all traces of soap suds. Use a dry microfiber cloth or chamois to wipe the paint clean.
A polish is clearly different from a wax. For black vehicles, the best polish is pure polish. Black paint needs special pre-cleaning to remove blemishes and oxidation. Work your way downwards after you have applied pre-cleaner to the top of the vehicle. Clean the paint surface with the cleaner, working one section at a time with a clean microfiber cloth. If there are deep scratches and swirls, apply more product. Wipe off with a microfiber cloth after the product has dried to a haze. Polish and wax the paint immediately afterward. You will achieve the best results by polishing.
3. Polish & Buff
Take a clean microfiber cloth and apply a small amount of polish to the paint, working one section at a time. Be sure to concentrate on areas that are blemished. Using a microfiber cloth, lightly buff the surface after polishing the paint work.
The type of wax you use does not matter. Using a clean microfibre cloth, apply a small amount of wax to each section. Work your way down to the doors and bumpers, starting with the hood, roof, and trunk. Using a light hand, wax only the doors and bumpers. A single heavy coat does not offer the same level of protection or shine as multiple light coats. Wait 10 – 15 minutes for the wax to dry to a haze. You should use a clean microfiber cloth to remove the haze and buff the surface lightly, starting from the top and working your way down to prevent scratching. Clean the paint finish of all wax traces.
