Had this beauty in for a weekend for a full detail, everything that could possibly be detailed was.. as you will see. No corrective work was necessary this time due to the dealers being under strict instructions to not touch the car, the black trim did have a few light swirls however it was decided that these would be left due to the paint on the trim being as soft as butter therefore the corrected paint would swirl again in no time.
The products used were as follows,
Autobrite Super Snow Foam
Citrus pearl shampoo
Merinos wool wash mitt
3D All Purpose Cleaner
Tar and Glue Remover
Ultra Fine Clay
HD Touch Detailer
Low Dust Glass Polish
Autobrite Black Magic
Autobrite Very Berry
Berry Blast trim and tyre Gel
3D Deep Blue Metal Polish
Various towels and Brushes
Anyway enough talk... here are the pictures;
Firstly, this is how the car looked upon arrival
As you can see, looking pretty dirty, still covered in the stickers and glue from delivery!
No rest for the wicked as the dirt continues in the door shuts and on the wheels.
After a brief look around the car it was given a thorough prewash and rinse using citrus wash diluted at 10:1,
Making sure to get in all of the nooks and crannies,
Going around the car it was apparent how much grime and road film had been collected on the trip from the dealers!
It was at this point that stickers that wouldnt require tar and glue remover were removed,
The bugs on the front were then attacked with fly away, you feel almost sadistic watching them melt away when using this stuff!
Bugs all removed
Sprayed with T&G Remover to sort any tar spots / stickers
Given a good thick layer of snowfoam,
All of the intricate places then cleaned whilst the snowfoam dwelled,
The car was then rinsed down,
Shuts cleaned with 3D apc and rinsed,
Transport wax cleaned from the Drain holes in the door,
Next, the wheels and arches were cleaned using brite gel for the wheels and citrus wash for the arches, then rinsed,
Washed with citrus pearl,
Pulled into the unit, then bodywork and wheels dried,
The paint was then checked under a sun gun and showed no defects surprisingly!
The car was then clayed with nothing being removed,
Next the paint was cleansed with cherry glaze to remove some minor staining from an unknown source and to prep the paint for lsp.
Some of the staining,
Another patch of staining,
The paint was then waxed with Addiction,
And removed after a couple of minutes,
To reveal this!
The black trim was then waxed with Black magic,
And buffed off, again after a few minutes,
The wheels were then waxed with very berry,
Then i carried out the final touches as follows,
Glass polished and cleaned using low dust glass polish and crystal clear,
Leaving perfectly smear free glass,
Exhausts polished using 3D Deep blue and 00 wire wool,
And finally the tyres were dressed with berry blast,
The car was then rolled outside just as the sun was beginning to go down, to take some after shots,
A gorgeous finish for a beautiful car if i do say so myself, Thank you to everyone who has read this far!
Comments and questions welcome as always!
The interior will be written up soon guys
