  1. What's In DFB's Cabinet?

    First a little backstory. I have been detailing since I was about 15, washing my parent's cars............. not for pocket money, but for fun! When I got my own car, I really started to get into it as a hobby. I would ration products because I was poor, at 18 I could only dream of some of the...
  2. Post Your Bead Porn

    Who doesn't like a bit of (bead) porn. These pics I took yesterday on my Ranger. This is Collinite 845 topped with Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Detailer - A couple more to get the ball rolling - My Mustang after a fresh application of Gyeon Q2 Wax and NV Nova Jet - My XR8 with Gyeon...
  3. Detail Guardz Dirt Lock Pad Washer

    Polishing cars means cleaning polishing pads at the end. This task can be pretty tedious, some pads and polishes clean either than others. I have had this Detail Guardz Pad Washer in the cabinet for a while now. After completely forgetting about it after polishing the Mustang, I finally had a...

  5. Holiday Project - Mustang Polishing and Waxing

    A full decontamination, polish and re-coating of an LSP, along with a few other tasks that I tend to do at the same time, is something I do every couple of years on my cars. Obviously, it’s not desirable to polish too regularly, nor do I find the need. Likewise using a clay bar or iron remover...
  6. P&S Undressed Tire Prep

    I'm sure it will surprise no one that when I have something on my mind, I'm like a dog with a bone until I sort it. It's a combination of OCD, anxiety and being a Capricorn. My latest pursuit is to find a dedicated tire cleaner that wows me. CarPro ReTyre is just not viable other than for...
  7. Interior Cleaners

    I think it's safe to assume that most reading posts in this section would need minimal interior "cleaning", but rather simply dusting or removing smudges and finger prints from glossy surfaces. In most cases, a damp microfiber or even an exterior detailer will do the job just fine. However...
  8. Wheel Cleaners vs Soap

    I'm a big advocate of having the right tool, or product, for every job. When I "clean" the wheels on my cars, I'm generally just washing off some light brake dust. When protected and regularly cleaned, brake dust and road grime does not have the chance to build up and bake onto the...
  9. Track Review - 2.3 High Performance v 5.0 GT

    Australian track review of the 2.3 HPP and 5.0 GT, both 10 speeds.
  10. Ford Performance Oil Separator

    This is the extend of my mechanical skills, I'm sure I'm capable of more but I just lack the confidence and have a fear of jacking something up to the point where I would have to involve someone else. So I pick my mark with these sort of things, then farm the rest out to the experts. While I...
  11. P&S Dream Maker

    I have no self control over detailing products. Did I need to try yet another drying aid? No! Did I want want to satisfy my curiosity? Yes! 😁 First, a little back story to this product. When P&S released Bead Maker a few years ago, it was lauded for it's gloss and slickness. It also added an...
  12. Detailing Brushes

    WARNING - Extremely nerdy post incoming. Detailing brushes, an important tools to have for both interior and exterior cleaning. Firstly, lug nut brushes. We all like clean nuts! (Sorry, I just felt compelled to make that crude joke.) These two are ideal for wheels, not too big and not...
  13. Gamma Seal Bucket Lids

    I resisted these for a long time, I just did not see a benefit to having an air tight lid on my wash buckets. I have been using 15 litre / 4 gallon buckets for a while now, fitted with grit guards, bucket dollies and Detailing Outlaws 'Buckanizer's' for additional tool storage. Having...
  14. Mosmatic Pressure Washing Accessories

    If you are really into washing your car, you will most likely want to have a pressure washer setup that is tailored to the task at hand. The gun and wand supplied with all pressure washers are bulky and too long for ergonomic and efficient car washing. This is where upgrading to a couple of key...
  15. Obsessed Garage Drying Aid

    I have used more drying aid products than I care to admit! :facepalm: :giggle: The concept of a drying aid is provide lubrication while using a towel to dry your car. In the process, you add extra gloss and protection to your paint. The new Obsessed Garage Drying Aid replaces Bead Maker in...
  16. The Rag Company Gauntlet Drying Towels

    It's amazing how drying towels have progressed over the last 10 to 15 years. I'm sure everyone would remember dragging a Meguiar's synthetic chamois across their paint, ringing the thing out every 10 seconds. Waffle Weave towels came and went, plush microfibres became the new standard, then...
  17. Angelwax Vision - The "Sledgehammer" of Glass Cleaners.

    I often see posts about people struggling with glass cleaning. In most cases, the issue will be the interior glass surfaces. For regularly maintained glass, getting streak free and clear glass should not be an issue, especially when using correct technique and towels. Usually, I get great...
  18. PSA - You need some of these!

    For years, I had been trying to find the ideal wash mitt for cleaning wheel faces and spokes. I had tired a variety of sponges, wash mitts, applicator mitts and brushes over the years but nothing felt "right". I wanted something that was naturally ergonomic and right sized for wheel cleaning...
  19. Kranzle Pressure Washer Oil Change

    Kranzle Oil Change. I know a few members here have Kranzle pressure washers, so I thought I would post this here for reference. The actual process is not hard or different to something like a lawn mower, but it's always good to have some visual cues. I have the portable 1122 TST / 1152 TST, but...
  20. Ceramic Coating Wheels

    Having just completed this process on a new set of wheels and tires, I thought I would post some information for those who may want to try this themselves. My process for this also involved prepping new tires, which I have also included here. For those who will be doing this to an existing set...
