Forensic Detailing channel (youtube)

Not sure if this has been posted here but in-case it hasn't

Forensic Detailing Channel

I stumbled across it the other week. While the channel is very small, and the videos are incredibly long - this guy goes into some very in depth detail about products and seems to speak from experience. He's not endorsed or sponsored by any company which I think makes him unbiased with his opinion. He compiles his reviews by using and testing. Some of the videos aren't useful (how to make your own wax...) but for the most part I've found them incredibly useful.

I watched a few of his videos now and found the detailing awards 2016 particularly useful and have ended up ordering a whole new range of products to start detailing the car with.

Maybe it'll come in useful for someone

Yeah that's why his videos are pointlessly long. He's new to the whole youtube thing though so I'm sure he'll find a way to relay knowledge in a more compact way

The idea is pretty simple behind the one bucket method. I've noticed myself if my car is particularly filthy, the water in the rinse bucket is dirty by half way. Find myself having to empty and refill it 2/3 times otherwise I'm just dunking the mitt in dirty water.

I tried it the other day when I washed the car. I wouldn't say its any quicker, and it limits the use of a pressure washer - given you wouldn't want to blast the wash mitt full on while holding it lol. But it does work in terms of keeping the water clean, even after I'd finished it was still clear. Even though the car was covered in salt and crap to begin with

I followed some of this guys guidance when I did a one stop polish of the car recently (yes being lazy!). He does talk a lot but got some pretty good results. Well good enough for me

Thank you - yours is coming along nicely there too! I spent a few hours over a couple of weekends on it, definitely worth it and very happy with the way it turned out.

I think it's just the angle of the picture also these were taken with phone and not the best lighting, few more below may be better for you either way I'm happy with the end result
