    The title inspired by my daughter, "Daddy it looks like Batmans car".
    Having received some attention in the bodyshop and leaving it in what can only be described as buffer trail hell, it was booked in with myself over 4 days.
    (Pic Heavy.)

    Upon arrival.





    Firstly started with the alloys, arches and trim, all cleaned using various brushes and Megs APC,







    Engine bay also cleaned using APC and dressed at a later date,





    Foamed using Megs APC through the lance,



    After 5 mins or so,



    Rinsed, washed & clayed using the normal methods,
    Defects examined and paint thickness readings taken,



    Some before and afters,

















    Tried various combinations and settled upon Fastcut+ on a Megs Cutting pad, most panels needing several passes,















    With the cutting stage complete, the vehicle was brought outside and dusted down,



    Refinement was done using Menzerna 203s on a Sonus SFX polishing pad,





    With the polishing complete, the vehicle was re-foamed and rinsed down,







    Paintwork treated to Zym@l HD-cleanse and followed by 1st layer of Zym@l Vintage, this was left to cure whilst other areas were treated,





    Alloys sealed using Poorboys and Opti-seal to the inner rims,



    Outer rim polished using Britemax metal duo,



    Tyres dressed with Zaino Z-16,



    Plastic & rubber trim treated with Blackfire gel,







    Shuts polished with Prime,



    Wax removed and vehicle pulled outside for attention to the interior, Vacuumed, leather cleaned & fed, plastics wiped down with APC, carpets shampooed and LCD screen cleaned with special lense cleaner,







    Leather aroma pad popped under the seat,



    A second layer of Vintage applied and removed,
    Glass cleaned and sealed,



    At this stage I still wasn't completely happy with the finish to the bonnet, so area were covered and a final polish using a finishing pad & 3m Ultrafina, pre-cleaned and re-waxed,



    Exhausts polished using Britemax easy cut and final shine, inner pipes polished with the help of Dremel like polisher,





    A final wipedown with Zaino Z-8 and finished.



    Results.















































    Thanks for looking.

    Cheers Neal, engine bay dressed with good old fashioned Autoglym rubber and vinyl, literally spray over the plastics, wipe of any overspray and leave to dry, if a less shiny surface is required then wipe over with a microfibre.
