Brand New Car “First Look” | How To Wash Black TESLA Model 3 Electric Car – Chemical Guys –


What’s up guys, today we’re taking our first
look at a brand new TESLA Model 3. As you guys can see right off the bat, it
is black which is a hard color to keep clean and swirl-free. We are going to show you how to properly wash
your vehicle to avoid the installation of new imperfections. Going down the line, this car has new package
of being fully tinted to make it super sleek. Tons of new options that most of us haven’t
seen before like a full set of cameras bordering the vehicle for autopilot. It has a huge tablet in the center console
to keep the driver informed of what the car is doing. What’s unique about this car is it was one
of the very first that were built. So lets get started. Like always we are going to be using the two
bucket method. This is to insure that we don’t introduce
new scratches and swirls to the vehicle. One bucket with a Dirt Trap for washing and
the other with a Dirt Trap for rinsing. Theses steps prevent the dirt from being reintroduced
to the vehicle. Something new today, we have our limited edition
Watermelon Snow Foam. This gives you the same thick suds as Honeydew
Snow Foam but now with a new watermelon scent. So lets get started by setting up the buckets
by inserting the Dirt Traps in each and then a little bit of soap in the wash bucket. We will also set up the Big Mouth which is
the foam cannon we have chosen for today to create tons of thick suds to prevent harming
the paint. If you didn’t already know, suds lubricate
the wash mitt which safely traps the abrasive particles of dirt so that it gently glides
off. Usually we start with the wheels but we cleaned
the wheels off camera since it is a messy job and we have tons of videos showing you
how to clean wheels on our channel. Today, we are going to focus on the body detail
starting from the top and working our way down . So we can get started right now! I’ve just inserted a Dirt Trap in each bucket
and if you are unfamiliar with what a Dirt Trap is, well it is a filtration system that
keeps dirt at the bottom of the bucket. It is designed like a fish trap where it is
like a one way, all the dirt gets trapped underneath the platform so that it stays away
from the car. Adding a little bit of soap to our wash bucket,
just a couple ounces. We are also loading up the canister of the
Big Mouth with a couple ounces. Nice vibrant red with a lovely smell due to
the watermelon scent. Reattach the top and mix it all together for
the perfect solution of foam. Try to avoid shaking it, that creates foam
inside of the canister but gently rocking the bottle lets it foam as it aerates. Now that this is all ready to go we can start
rinsing with the pressure washer from top to bottom. We don’t want to blast heavier, abrasive dirt
onto areas we have already cleaned so we have the best results. Now that’s always a lot of fun. Grabbing our wash mitt and moving to the wash
bucket. This is the Chenille Microfiber Wash Mitt
which has these dreads that trap foam to prevent the microfiber from scratching. Like I mentioned, we are starting at the top. Working in straight lines and linear motions
because as I’ve said when you work in circles that is a sure way of introducing swirls to
your paint. Working in straight lines it is preventing
the installation of bad paint imperfections. Lets work our way around the vehicle and periodically
we will go to our rinsing bucket to get rid of the filth and spent soap to keep as much
dirt off of the vehicle. Pressing it all the way to the bottom of the
bucket against the Dirt Trap and scrub to release the embedded dirt. Take it outside of the bucket and wring it
out on the ground to further prevent the grime from coming back to the vehicle. So now I’ll grab so new soap and we can keep
on washing. Now that we are done rinsing the car it is
now time to dry it and what better towel to use on this heavenly car than the Cloud 9
Microfiber Towel. Before we start, with any new microfiber towel
we are going to remove the tag so that scratches and swirls aren’t created. We’ll fold it into four, even though this
is a massive towel, we are still going to fold it up into four so we can have as many
dry sides as possible. Just like we did when we were rinsing it,
foaming it and as we were washing it we are starting at the highest point. Working in straight lines we are picking up
the water to prevent stains and etching. This towel picks up water nicely without needing
multiple passes or multiple towels. I’ll finish drying this TESLA and then we
are going to bring it inside for a paint inspection to see if it needs a clay bar treatment or
even a polish. Even new cars, straight from the dealership
can use a polish. You guys stay tuned! Now that we have brought the 3 inside we can
see how cool and sleek the finish is. It doesn’t really need a clay bar service. Most of the time before we do any polishing
or waxing we remove the embedded contamination using a clay bar. After inspecting the paint we can see it is
in pretty good shape, there are a few troublesome areas like here on the door. It looks like there may have been some kind
of over spray or paint on the road it has splattered the door and the rear bumper. I’ll take a Light Clay Bar which I’ve torn
off a small piece and kneaded. Using some Clay Luber and generously spray
the surface and the clay bar because this is new paint which means it can be soft so
we don’t want to add any marring. So by lubricating it with plenty of Clay Luber
and working back and forth. Slowly it is going to start to get smoother
as we pull the embedded contamination out for a factory finish. So as I mentioned earlier, by using plenty
of lubrication this will prevent the bar from creating holograms or marring but it is going
to safely glide across the surface. I can already feel that I have removed the
paint contamination. Using a clean microfiber towel I’ll wipe off
the excess so we can check our work. It is a nice, smooth surface and it is ready
for polishing or waxing. If you guys like this video be sure to give
it a thumbs up. We’re going to continue the detailing process
on this 3. We’ll catch up with you guys next time right
here in the Detail Garage.
