Hi everyone, about time I posted here again. What really has excited me is the fact that it's the first time I've used ultimate liquid wax on my rare RS. We in Australia have had to wait a long time for this oustanding product. Of course I used the matching ultimate wash for the shampoo. The wash was all I needed to do to prepare the surface for the wax because the paint work is in pristine condition. While many people were puzzled why I waxed the car (with techwax 2) on the first day I bought it, I knew that if I get in early, it would be so much easier to maintain the paintwork in pristine condition. This has proven to be the case. I'm also lucky because my conditions for detailing a car are ideal, with a nicely cool underground car wash bay. I think this helps alot and it's advantages are underestimated by many people.
About this car. It's a rare limited production German made euro Ford that we in Australia were very very lucky to get. It's the very acme of hot hatches! It's the only car in the world with the unique revoknuckle suspenion that's patented by Ford. The splendid design of the car with the various spoilers, front air dam and rear diffuser is generally modelled from the WRC RS Focus that won Ford two manufacturer championships and made it the most successful manufacturer in the history of the championship. The paint job is special too. It's deep and multilayered. At different angles you can see various delicious hues, of a fruity character, from fresh lemon and lime to ripening green apples. The performance is potent with a 5 cylinder turbo charged engine. The clutch is beautifully weighted and the gear shifts are very precise short throws. The engine note is smooth, sonorous and majestic. The Focus RS is nothing less than a minor masterpiece from Ford.
About the Meguiar's products. The ultimate wash and wax is a great product and that's that. After the wash, in terms of appearance alone, the car didn't even need a wax because it already looked sensational. And now, on to the ultimate wax. I must admit I was a little apprehensive about it at first because people's experience with it have not been uniformly great across the board. There is the problem of streaking, and to a lesser extent, hazing. I'm now convinced the problem is almost certainly at the user level. At the very least, I'm skeptical when someone posts about streaking and never tell us about the conditions under which they are detailing, the equipment they are using, the techniques they are employing and the manner in which they are detailing. Anyway, ultimate liquid wax is the easiest wax I've used. It goes on really thin compared to #26, gold class and nxt 2, and in that sense, may be somewhat difficult to tell where the wax has been applied. Otherwise the gloss and shine is extraordinary. Looking at the car in the full glare of the midday sun, I thought the car looked like an unwraped shiney new toy model but enlarged, if you follow my meaning. but Nuff talk, here are the pictures!!
