Did my first cleaning this weekend. Exterior only as I did the interior several weekends ago.
Used the ONR product for the cleaning. Did a very good job at cleaning the car with little effort. I was able to wash the whole car in the garage since ONR is a no rinse wash. The plastics around the tires were a bit tougher. I just went with a different mix level and washed that area twice. There are Optimum Products for deep cleaning plastics, but I was looking for efficient.
I have to admit that there were some challenges in washing this E-Pace. The front is a pain. All those little holes in the grill. The spoiler on the back also traps a lot of dirt. You have to really reach under the spoiler to clean it.
When you open the doors, you will also notice a fair amount of dirt in there. A lot of nook and crannies. This was pretty easy to clean using a detailing spray. No need to wash. Just spray an area (careful to avoid interior) and wipe with a good microfiber.
Tires were cleaned using ONR also. Still a good product for doing that. I use a separate sponge for that area, just because. Then a tire shine product to make them look pretty.
I followed the wash with a spray on wax. They go on easy, spray and wipe. This is only needed every couple of washes. It adds a layer of UV protection and a nice shine. When you dont spray wax, you can detail spray it. Or ONR is a protector, so you dont need this step.
I did not do the engine bay. I have never done that. There are instructions but just like using an orbital to do a deep wax, I am not brave enough for that.
All told I spent three hours on the cleaning. Time wise that is a bit much for me. I will have to work that down. Considering that I spent two hours on the interior a couple of weekends ago. I typically dont have that much time on weekends, so I will have to figure something out.
I did take it out for a drive on Sunday...it was a gorgeous day and being indoors all week, it was nice to get out...Though it got a couple of bugs on it...must fight urge to wash again right away. Actually, using ONR with the right dilution can be used for a quick clean. Follow with a detailing spray...all would be good in ten minutes.
