Some Detailing Needed

I have had a very busy time over the past couple of weeks and I haven’t had a chance to move my beemer in a while, so I decided to go for a little drive and get the blue devil cleaned up. Being busy with work and spending the weekends by the water I haven’t had much time to move the car, and you should always take a day out of a week or two to drive your car, its not healthy to keep it parked. So after a short drive I decided that my boy needed to cleaned and prepped, so I drove over to Al Falah Car Wash.

It had some dirt spots and some dust since I kept it under a cover for a while. When I first started the engine it sound like music to my ears, and now I remember why I always get a ticket when driving this machine. I always have the urge to drive faster, it pulls you, you push harder, your blood is pumping and it feels damn good. So I thought it would be best to get off the street soon. They started washing the car, soap as usual, then really getting the grime out of the wheels and getting rid of that annoying brake dust.

I enjoy when they dry of the car using high pressure air to get the water out of those annoying spots that spray water as soon as you drive leaving dry water trails. They got the tire and wheel shine after drying the wheels and tires, one guy working the interior with a brush for the A/C and cleaning it out thoroughly. I never get tired of that brand new car look, I love taking care of my car. Al Falah is my favorite one and only spot to bring out that blue shine.

GulfRun 5 – The Car Wash

At last the videos are coming up! I knew some videos were coming but I wasn’t sure what video was going to be released but I really like this cool video. It looks better then how wet and messy it got, they did a really good job of detailing those cars. I really liked how my M6 came out, too bad we can’t keep our cars like this all year long the police wouldn’t let us drive at all with those on. They were really shuffling through the cars, jumping from one to the other with all the different stickers and positions, some of those cars looked really good.

Detailing In Kuwait

Detailing is a real artform and very few have perfected it in Kuwait, and these few places that I have listed below have done a good job of coming close.

I am one person that likes to drive and ride all forms of machines, I also take care of those machines. One aspect that people forget about is taking car of the vehicle’s exterior & interior, not just the mechanical parts.

We have bad washing practices in Kuwait, not including bad weather, dust and all possible forms of damage to a cars exterior. You lose the color, the vibrance of teh car, your interior might even change shades of color and you might not notice.

Detailing Steps:

  • Air Pressure
  • Clay
  • Full Wax
  • Leather Treament
  • Engine Detailing

All these steps will bring back the color and shine of your car, getting rid of those annoying scratches on the car, getting rid of the circles from washing your car with crappy quality cloth. Getting the color of your leather back to its original look and feel. I recommend a full detailing at least once every 6 months, you will love the way your car looks and your car will thank you. I’m doing this to my Landcruiser after taking it for a major beating in the deserts of Saudi for five days.

Recommend Companies:

  • Al Falah Car Wash (Al Soor Street, Kuwait City)
  • Zeibart (Al Rai on the way to Avenues from Safat Alghanim)

First Stop Al Falah

Got my car back at last, on a flat bad at the end of the work day on Thursday, it was dirty so the first thought that came to mind even before food was to head to Al Falah Car Wash. The car really needs to be detailed, there were smudges inside all over, dirt all over the car so there was no way I could leave it this way on its first day back in my control. I took off to Al Falah Car Wash, and I knew the timing was perfect and it wouldn’t be too busy at the end of the work day on a Thursday. As soon as I got it, the guys even remembered that they needed to cover my intakes when I forgot, they got to plastic bags to cover the intake while they wash the car, and they did give it a thorough cleaning.

I knew that I wanted to detail the car but I missed it too much to leave it their for a day, I wanted to drive it, anywhere and everywhere. The best part is these guys knew what they were doing, I love when they use an airhose to get the water out of all those annoying places. It drives me nuts that I see water coming out of these small places leaving dry trails across the car. The leather was cleaned, it looked really good and there were no longer those blotches in the interior, but they said they need time to really clean it up and bring back the normal look. The tires were given the right shine, they worked on it for about 35 minutes before it was really done, and as soon as I got back into the car it felt brand new, that is one very satisfying wash.

Detailing @ Al Falah Car Wash

Its been sometime now since I wanted to take my car detailing at Al Falah Car Wash. They do wonders with cars when they take them in for detailing, they bring back the color of the interior and give a new shine to the body.

I know some people that take their cars detailing once every couple of months, but I haven’t had a chance due to luck. Sometimes they were booked up and other times when I decided to go a weather anomaly takes place such as dust storm, hurricane, or rain, so I stay home instead of taking the car in.

This time I called and they had an opening so after my last meeting I went straight there to drop off the car. It was perfect timing, by the time I got there I just parked my car outside for a little while. Half an hour later the owner of F355 convertible took has care from detailing so I was able to park my car indoors at that point. They have an enclosed garage for detailing and it takes about half a day to a day for full detailing, and the garage takes 2 cars. For only 55 KD you get fantastic results which bring your car back to life, that is what I have seen with every car they detailed, and now it was my turn. A friend of mine picked me up and dropped me off, and on the way back I dozed of in the passenger seat after a long day.
