    Thumbs up From beast to beauty detail (56k beware)

    Another detail session done the other weekend. This time is was a 1999 Vauxhall Vectra 1.8 16v LS with mods (was my old Vectra )
    Since selling it on it's been a little abused and was in dire need of some correction. So the process:

    Step 1 - Clean
    - BerryCherry wheel cleaner on the alloys
    - Rinse
    - Poorboys BugSquash on front of car and lower door panels to soak
    - Megs APC in door shuts
    - Snowfoam whole car (let stand for 5-10mins)
    - Rinse
    - 2 bucket wash with CG Citrus Wash & Gloss
    - Rinse and dry with waffle drying towel
    - Clayed car with Sonus clay and Dodo 'slippy' clay lube
    - Quick 2 bucket wash
    - Rinse and dry

    Step 2 - Correction & seal
    - CG Pro Polish and Compound pad (rotary) - all metalwork
    - AG SRP (hand sponge) - all painted plastics
    - 1 coat of Autobalm (filler)
    - 1 coat of CG EZ-Creme Glaze
    - 2 coats of CG Jetseal 109 sealant

    Step 3 - Finishing off
    - All plastics dressed with AG Bumper Care
    - Windows cleaned with CG window cleaner
    - Alloys waxed with SmartWax RimWax
    - Tyres dressed with CG New Look Trim Gel
    - CG Speed Wipe Detailer all over paint

    And now the pictures enjoy:

    BEFORE:












    WHEELS CLEANED




    SNOWFOAM








    CLAYING




    CORRECTION (work cut out)



    50/50




    FINISHED

    Makes putting the GTR through the car wash even more embarrassing

    Bring her over and I'll have a look if you want

    I am dead chuffed with how this one turned out, it was in real need of some TLC and it just beams at me every time I see it
