Road Trip Car Wash Detail – Part 1 – How To Wash And Wax A Dirty Black Car – Chemical Guys

Published by Darron Toy on


Welcome back to Detail Garage! Now a bunch of guys from the shop just came in
off the road from SEMA. They took this car on a road trip through the
Las Vegas desert and back… …and it’s disgusting. It’s really dirty on the outside, the wheels,
the inside is a wreck, so we’re gonna go through the steps for a
quick detail after a road trip. You’re probably going to encounter some bugs
on the front end, lots of dirt, maybe some rain stains and mud all over the vehicle, and tons of brake dust from driving all over and braking. So we’re going to wash the car using Black Light Soap. Black Light Soap gives you all that hybrid radiant finish
that you love about Black Light Glaze, but it gives it to you in a soap form. So you can wash your car for a slick touch
that’s not going to install any swirls or scratches. To shine up your car after a road trip
you might want to put an extra coat of wax on, I’m gonna use InstaWax. InstaWax is a liquid wax that blends a natural carnauba wax with a synthetic sealant. Just shake it up, spray it on the car, and that’s a full-blown wax coating that protects
the paint against UV sunlight, pollution, and enhance a beautiful warm wet carnauba shine for months on end. So to get started, I’ll wash the wheel with Black Light Soap
and Sticky Citrus Wheel Gel, then I’ll foam the paintwork with the TORQ Professional Foam Cannon Snow Foamer. It works pressure washers as low as 500 PSI. So if you have a little electric pressure washer, you can keep up with professional detailers
and their expensive gas-powered pressure washers. Let’s get started. …just need like a… shield. A riot shield for this. So we brought the car in, we finished the
car wash and dried it off, now it’s time to put on a nice coat of wax to help protect the paint
and make it look nice, clean, and shiny. We have some InstaWax, and unlike a normal carnauba
paste wax or cream, this just sprays on. So activate the two-part formula, and mist
it over the paintwork, and just like that, it is waxed! So I’m going to let this sit for a few minutes until it’s dry, then I’ll come in and buff off any residue. So, you can use InstaWax on anything you would
a traditional paste wax on. Anything that’s painted, shiny like chrome, any clear parts like headlight lenses to protect them from turning yellow, and even parts like side window glass and the windshield to repel rain water. I’m going to go ahead and wax up the car, we’ll wait a few minutes and come buff off any residue so the car is ready to hit the road! So you can see we removed the wax from the car, and we have a nice warm wet shine on this beautiful black paint work. So we finished the exterior car wash,
post road trip. We’re going to go ahead and go to the interior
of the car, so stay tuned for part two where we’re going to clean out all the stains,
clean out all the trash, and get rid of that funky B.O. smell! Stay tuned for part two.

After all of that it still looks like a Sonata.

But the products are bad ass!

1-800-beatdown · December 7, 2016 at 7:31 pm

Why do you guys use such a long pressure wash wand? Big risk of scratching the car up with that.

Luuk B · December 7, 2016 at 7:42 pm

wow nice vid. looking forward to test out that blacklight shampoo!

KalmarDeZZe · December 7, 2016 at 7:44 pm

Antonis Kapsalis · December 7, 2016 at 7:47 pm

Is this wax easy to buff off???

Tomas Feterik · December 7, 2016 at 7:57 pm

You should do more dirty cars like this, it looks much better at the end

FATBOYSLIM · December 7, 2016 at 8:02 pm

In Macedonia just 1 meter movement with a car is a road trip, and this is 1:100 dirt on a car compared with cars in Macedonia!

Gunnar Karl Jóhannesson · December 7, 2016 at 8:07 pm

What's the name of the song which plays while you're foaming the car?

Weston Bridges · December 7, 2016 at 8:19 pm

Why is Matt the only guy that uses the foam cannon as pre rinse before he actually washes it?

Gaganjot Singh · December 7, 2016 at 8:28 pm

How long does the Insta wax protect your car

Fern Sanchez · December 7, 2016 at 8:37 pm

Def will be trying this out in the future

TRouBLeSHooteR23 · December 7, 2016 at 10:17 pm

From what I learned on your videos that green microfiber towels are only on exterior paint not on the face of the rims 👍🏼😊✌🏼️
Gray MF towels are only for rims, metal, aluminum etc 5:17

Michael Hollon · December 7, 2016 at 10:44 pm

Realistically how much of that spray/ wax sealant did you use on the entire car? Just bio watching the video it looks like it would use quite a lot.

Thunder Cat · December 7, 2016 at 11:03 pm

Great video guys! Good to see you guys do vehicles that the average Joe/Jane can relate to. Not to say that I don't enjoy the supercar appearances but seeing you use your products on realistic situations on everyday cars makes me want to purchase them more.(the products, not the cars :)) :thumbsup:

ryan renteria · December 7, 2016 at 11:28 pm

I wish I could like this video a thousand times! just love both the products so much can't wait to get ahold of them!

jose713 · December 7, 2016 at 11:50 pm

Finally you guys rinsed off after using the foam cannon!

Ches fordham · December 8, 2016 at 12:23 am

Do you guys have any soap that really foams up when used on the paint? I have the Mr Pink but it doesnt really create that much suds on the paintwork. It does work really well in the foam cannon though!

Ojas Ray · December 8, 2016 at 1:53 am

Do you recommend using a blower to dry your car? i noticed in the video something of that affect…

i am always worried, that using a high power blower might lift up something..

b5angelo · December 8, 2016 at 1:55 am

lmao that looks like about 25km of driving in toronto

Thunder Cat · December 8, 2016 at 3:11 am

I have a question. Can I use the professional spray bottles I purchased from you guys for the Instawax? Thanks.

Import Car Enthusiast · December 8, 2016 at 3:50 am

All this effort spent on keeping the clean and protected… yet it has like the cheapest tires known to man. I dont get it, smh.

Nicholas Lomen · December 8, 2016 at 6:02 am

Can you guys wash more dirty cars. I can't get the full affect with a semi decently cleans car.

Matthew Osborne · December 8, 2016 at 6:21 am

Is that spray wax a new product this is the first time I've seen you guys use a spray wax before I love them and I love spray wax and sealants

Timmy Telebrant · December 8, 2016 at 9:39 am

The Cars They are cleaning is never really dirty??? wanna see a real dirty car

Mad Wax · December 8, 2016 at 2:24 pm

Any chance you can use insta-wax in direct sunlight?

Kevin Vines · December 8, 2016 at 5:02 pm

I love that you featured a truly dirty car this time around 👍🏻. However, in the sweeping "After" shots, it's clear the paint needs some work. Did you forego the usual clay, buff, and polish because the car is a rental? What's up? Nice job in any event!

Mega-ton · December 8, 2016 at 5:51 pm

Car looked much cleaner but that paint needs some attention. It's hazy.

Eduardo Sanguino · December 8, 2016 at 6:20 pm

Fantastic video!! Question, why did you decide to go with the green towels rather than an edgeless happy ending or any other towel?

Richard Díaz · December 11, 2016 at 6:06 am

What kind of soap did you recommend to my maxima 2016 dark silver and wax too

K Mayer · December 12, 2016 at 2:18 am

Hertz never gets their rentals back that clean…

Martin Short · December 12, 2016 at 12:33 pm

👌👍👏 This video was enjoyable to watch love the editing and the music you guys added. Great job on keeping it simple and interesting at the same time.

Pete Flynn · December 19, 2016 at 1:59 pm

You guys are washing/rinsing only with soft water aren't you?

Erik Nobles · December 20, 2016 at 10:16 pm

Ned Barnett · January 11, 2017 at 10:11 pm

DJR5280 · January 13, 2017 at 6:41 pm

Creaky C. · March 31, 2017 at 11:41 pm

Hey I have a question. I have a 1800psi pressure washer, and it came with a turbo nozzle (an oscillating nozzle). Would it be safe to use it on the paint?

RS1 · April 11, 2017 at 7:28 pm

Daniel Marschall · April 24, 2017 at 7:14 pm

Whats the name of the song while using InstaWax?

Pilots 47 · May 5, 2017 at 6:00 pm

Another extremely happy customer there.. hello chemical guys.. I've seen all your videos on how to maintain interior and exterior of the car but can you please tell me how to maintain a car on off road type roads in India? Even if i wash my car, it gets dirty within 3 to 4 days…

F C · June 3, 2017 at 3:32 am

Which pressure washer do y'all use?

Yeshas Chandra · June 14, 2017 at 11:14 am

What pressure washer do they use?

The Burnt Taco 12 · June 17, 2017 at 10:51 am

Best washing that rental car will ever have in its life lmao

Chandra Sekhar · July 26, 2017 at 6:51 am

You left a lot of swirl marks while cleaning the car. Also waxing before clay?

Joao Henrique · August 31, 2017 at 5:09 am

1:54 name of the song plss

Sean H · September 9, 2017 at 9:19 pm

Man this awesome keep up the vids!👏

Sneaker Theory · October 4, 2017 at 6:33 am

Can I put this over traditional wax? Saying that as in i already waxed my Jeep a couple weeks ago, can i put this over it before i go to any shows or anything. I’ve heard that you can’t wax a car a lot because it’ll ruin the paint.

N VIGNESH NAYAKA · November 15, 2017 at 10:10 am

Why was the car not rinsed at the begining?

Parramatta Eels · January 23, 2018 at 10:41 pm

Hey did u guys rinse the car before u used the foam cannon?

ChasiubaoBelly · April 24, 2018 at 3:54 am

I feel like it needs clay bay step! Not smooth enough.

IKESTERrocks · July 25, 2018 at 5:50 am
