    The prep is :

    - Rinse at low pressure setting
    - Snowfoam and foam lance to presoak and loosen up any dirt
    - All badges, glass edges, nooks and crannies are cleaned using a detailing brush and APC
    - Wheels are cleaned using Bilberry, a megs wheel brush and another small detailing brush
    - Arches are cleaned using APC and brush
    - Pressure washed off
    - Washed using 2 BM and meguiars shampoo plus (500:1 dilution)
    - Pressure washed off again, inc all doorshuts and arches
    - Dried using a MD drying towel and last touch, with eurow plpus towels used to buff
    - LSP (Last stage protection) is applied and buffed off per panel
    - All trims, tyres, glass and engine treated

    The LSP (last stage protection) is Rubbish Boys Original edition wax (a single layer) :

    yeah, beading is caused by the wax coating that water can't stick to :)

    I'll get some of my beading photos up soon
