    Default JDM Time - Passo 2012

    Aoa friends.
    ...
    I have started this thread to share my new ride i.e. Toyota Passo 2012, so that people can get benefit from this thread and I can share my problems and get guidance from experienced members.
    .
    Before proceeding further I want to thanks to Allah Almighty, who has bestowed me (and all of us) with unlimited blessings? I want to thanks my parents for their incalculable hard work for us and family for the support? I am obliged to PW and its members who were always there to guide me esp. @muradi @huzaifa.haroon @karnol @us000 @asim867 @CerwinVega @villain @aliusman420 @Nabz90 etc.
    .

    • Date of reaching Karachi port: 17th July 2015
    • Date of reaching Tarnol dry port (Islamabad) / Delivery to us: 6th August 2015

    .

    As I'm a detailing fanatic I would like to advise you some things to keep the car in top notch condition even some years down the line:

    1. Always wash with a pH neutral dedicated Car Wash and Wax Shampoo like that of Meguiar's, Nanoskin, Turtle etc, but not the F1 or other sub-standard brands, they are not clear-coat safe.

    2. Wax her once a month or if you can't manage time for that, take her to a professional detailer and get her a paint correction and sealant treatment, would last you 6 months easily, but even after that just wash her with a branded shampoo, a microfibre or merino wool wash mitt and keep microfiber towels so that swirls do not appear so soon and in a massive amout.

    3. I always drive with the windows up, the 1-2 km/l that is saved by not driving with AC and with windows down, its price is a dirty and dusty interior and you would not certainly want that.

    4. Use a dedicated windshield washer fluid and keep a good glass cleaner like 3M and some microfibre towels for its application, you will always have crystal clear glass.

    5. If the car comes in contact with overspray or road tar or any other sorts of contamination, get it removed immediately with the help of a clay bar/clay mitt and tar remover, because if the contamination stays for long, it harms your paint finish resulting in oxidation, damaged clear coat etc.

    6. Whenever the car gets washed, pay special attention to the door jams and wheel arches that they do not accumulate any water and get cleaned properly, otherwise the dirt can eat the rubber parts if it stays for long.

    7. Never ever dry dust the car, it will cause massive swirls and scratches.

    8. Never wash the engine with pressurized water, there are delicate sensors which can be damaged after which you'll have a Check Engine light and finding the fault drives one crazy.

    9. Never ever use any petrol/diesel spray on engine and/or undercarriage, it is a menace and gradually eats the rubber parts and damages the pastic ones as well, not to forget the dust attraction it causes.

    10. Always keep a microfibre towel and a Quick Detailer spray in the car, and whenever you spot bird poop on the car, remove it immediately with the help of these otherwise it tends to leave its marks behind specially if the sun is up and the body is hot because of it.

    If there is anything else you need to ask feel free

    thanx alot for the wishes @aliusman420

    thanx alot for the advices...

    will try to follow them and ask u in detail when get some time....

    wind screen washer fluid...?? never heard of this before...

    Default Interior Concerns

    Though the interior was neat but there were few dirt marks on seats, 2 marks on door linings and few marks on mats...

    May be during transport, get these marks, because it was mentioned interior grade A in auction sheet...

    Few weeks back borrowed toyota fielder from a cousin to visit murree and surroundings with family... As a COURTESY some child put chewing gum on the exterior of door..

    Before handing over the car back, get the car washed and tried with water and cloth to remove that bubble gum, but all in vain, in fact it turn black...

    Luckily i was a t service station, got a 10 Rs Luster and applied on it, and it went in 1st attempt, like nothing happened there,,,

    Keeping this in mind, as the interior lining of PAsso is of plastic so the 2 marks were easily removed with the help of luster... and then polish was applied all over...

    The dash had no spot...

    Default Cleaning Seats

    I was a bit concerned about the seats...

    But during visit to service station, went to near by detailing shop and purchased a MULTIPURPOSE SURFACE FOAM CLEANER...

    It has brush on its top... I just applied the foam, rubbed with brush, and the stains were vanished...

    At few places i had to apply it twice...

    Sharing method to use and results in pictures...
