    I've done this detail in 2 parts as apart from the usual correction detail, it has had some repair work carried out on the leather, and Olly the dent wizard is coming to work his magic in the morning.

    So on with the detail.

    This car was uber clean when it turned up Thursday morning, even after its trip around the M25, a real credit to its owner.





    Foamed with AS Actimousse Hi Foam



    Then for some reason I don't appear to have any of the other wash stages on camera ::

    After the usual wheels, wash and clay stages car was brought inside dried ready for inspecting. Rob aka Gleam Machine turned up as he was interested in seeing how the leather repair system works, and kindly gave me a hand with the initial correction work - cheers mate :thumb:

    Being silver made it a bit more difficult to capture the defects on camera, but with a bit of messing about with angles managed to pick them out.

    Few examples of the level of defects









    Some strange etching on the boot



    And a small cluster of scratches, from what looks like someone scraping something of the paintwork :



    There were a few areas that required some wet sanding, these were done using 2500 grit unigrit





    Bonnet was then corrected using Megs cutting pad and 3M FCP leaving this





    Some before and afters of various areas, these are all after the FCP stage










    Another bit of wet sanding on the front wing

    Before - not sure if they show up very well in this pic small cluster of deep RDS in the middle





    After







    Tail lights





    Boot





    Bumper






    To tackle the light scratching under the door handles and some staining below the rubber seals I used GT P1 on a german applicator







    Once all the correction was completed, I then went round the car refining the finish using 85RD on a 3M UF pad













    Once all the refining was completed all panel were given an IPA wipedown



    Ready for an application of G Techniq C1



    This was applied, using a cotton makeup applicator, as per the instructions



    Once the C1 was complete the glass was treated to G2



    And left to cure, before being removed using the residue remover



    And the results



























    And a little video clip of the sheeting from C1



    As always

    Cheers for looking and Merry Xmas

    Bryan :thumb:

    G|Techniq coating is pro application only, mainly because if you **** up you have to wet sand it off!
