    Had this in for a couple of days to tidy up

    The befores













    As usual onto the wheels first strong mix of AS Smart wheels, and lots of elbow grease on these ones!



    Arches also got a dosing of Carbrite Clean-All APC

    Engine bay was also cleaned at this stage - no pics

    My usual wash procedure, presoak with Clean-All, foamed and washed, using one of my new natural sea sponges (jury's out on these still) and Carbrite Cherry Bomb shampoo

    Window rubbers, badges and any nooks cleaned using apc and SV detail brush





    Once washed, car was then clayed with BH clay, and de-tarred with Tardis, one final rinse before drying with plush drying towels, then rolled indoors for the inspection











    Evidence of some paintwork, readings confirmed this



    Onto the correction, FCP on 3M orange compounding pad, and refine with 106FA on megs polishing pad.

    50/50 on drivers door





    Some before and after shots, this is just with FCP no refining

    Boot - before



    Boot - after



    NSR Rear wing - before



    After



    Closer



    After all the correction was done, car was dusted down, given an IPA wipedown, then 3 x Z2 applied followed with Z8 wipedown.

    Tyres dressed with AG No.5

    Wheels sealed with Z-CS

    Interior was cleaned up, leather cleaned and treated with Z-9 & Z-10

    Engine bays dressed with Carbrite Galaxy

    And the results

























    Cheers for looking

    Hey Bryan, nice work matey I am impressed.

    You have a very big garage, no? Are you a detailer or valeter by trade?

    I liked the 50 / 50 shots mate, shudder to think what mine's is like.... Red

    Amazing results.
    Did you sand it down before you started polishing?

    What would a detail like this cost a forum member?
    Mine is in desperate need of some professional work
