I spent one full hour talking to SPM about the materials and procedures, he gave me list of materials I will need to wax and detail cars. One buffer, hard wax brick, several hand wash rags, water for after waxing the vehicle. The buffer is needed for the actual waxing of the car, yes you can detail a vehicle without one but the type of wax I will be using needs a buffer and this is the way I’m learning how to detail.
Spent one hour Checking of the list of materials that my SPM gave me to go through, I first checked my house for these materials. I have the buffer, wax, and hand rags. I need to acquire pad cleaner and conditioner, then decide on a big enough area to complete my product.
On Wednesday February 2, 2017 I spent two hours looking around my house and going down the check list of the supplies for my product, I have laid out what I have on my garage floor.
On Tuesday February 7, 2017 I watched the velocity channel where this TV show called Competition Ready on this show they show off cars they have detailed, also they show you the step by step processes of detailing. On one of the episodes I watched, it was a car show where they had competition on whose car was the best detailed in under two hours. I watched Competition Ready for two and half hours.
On Saturday March 4, 2017 I meet with my facilitator at his house for three hours, we sat and talked about my product and what I am going to do. He recommend that I take lots of before and after and maybe do a power point with step by step pictures of me waxing and washing the vehicle that I choose. He was also able to show me the results of his own car that he has been detailing for years, I was given many tips from him showing me what he did and what he had trouble with while waxing. The detailing is more than just washing and waxing, you also to have vacuum out the inside while washing and making sure it has no dirt and grim on the windows, carpets, and seats.
On March 19, 2017 I reorganized and bought products to complete my product, I was first gifted my buffer and foam pad kits back in December as a Christmas gift. I went and bought two bottles of buffer pad cleaner and pad conditioner.
On Monday March 20, 2017 I worked on my mother’s 2014 Chevy Curse, first I started to normally wash and dry the car with regular car soap and water. I also made sure to wash and dry the rims and tires of the vehicle applying tire shine.
I continued my detailing work with cleaning out and making the interior of my mom’s vehicle, I first started by vacuuming out the carpets and floor boards. Then next the seats and cracks in-between seats, I also hand scrubbed the floor mates and seats. Lastly I whipped down the dashboard, center console, and door interests such as the window switches with basic car whips.
On Friday April 7th, I spent around four and half hours waxing/buffing my mother’s whole car. Starting with the fender wheel wells and making my way down the whole car, and finishing with the trunk and bumper. I first started with setting up a larger enough work space in my garage, while doing this I set aside my products and materials to actually wax the vehicle. Next I apply a small amount of wax to the waxing pad of the buffer and began to apply the paint. Then I repeat this process through out the sides of the vehicle dividing each side left and right, into four main areas. Dividing the whole car into sections allows me make sure that my wax is being spread evenly on all areas of the car.
