    Default Taffyopel v Yadziyad's Vectra Detail = 10hr Paint Correction

    Ziyad dropped his car off to me at just after 1700 on Saturday. Did a few hours prepping it then spent all day Sunday and some of Monday morning just correcting the paintwork! This is the worse detail I have done so far, something that Ziyad was quite proud of but needless to say, he is now one happy chap!

    Process:
    Snowfoam & Rinse.
    2 bucket wash using Megs Ultimate Wash & Wax Shampoo and wash mitts.
    Rinse & dry.
    Clay using green mild clay bar.
    Re-wash, rinse and dry.
    Approx 10hr paintwork correction using DA and Menzerna PO85 correcting compound.
    IPA wipedown.
    Polish with Auto Glym SRP.
    Wax of choice was Ioncoat Naviwax Dark. (Not Ziyads Vectra but shows how good it is).
    Exhaust tips polished with Mothers Aluminum Polish.
    Plastics dressed with Valet Pro Protectant.
    Tyres dressed with Megs Endurance Gel.
    Interior detailed and hoovered.
    Plastics cleaned with APC then dressed.
    Windows cleaned inside and out with 3D Glass cleaner.

    I'll let the pictures do the talking. Enjoy!


























    NICE BRAND NEW CLAY BAR!


    THIS IS AFTER JUST ONE HALF OF THE ROOF!!!!








    SOME SHOTS OF THE BONNET!














    WHAT A BEAUTY THIS SHOT IS!!!




    SOME 50/50 SHOTS!


















































    THE RESULTS!








































    All comments welcome.
