Not a big write up but thought I would share some pics anyway.
Today I had this Astra VXR in for an enhancement detail (1 stage polish) and it was in a bit of a sorry state, I could have spent a lot more time on the car but a day was all I had on this occasion. The paintwork looked as though it had been washed with brush its whole life, it was very dull and littered with some pretty deep long straight scratches.
The bonnet and the roof were the worst offended areas in terms of deoxidisation which is usually the case, as they are big flat areas that get penetrated by the suns harmful UV rays.
The main bulk of the polishing was done with Megs #83 on a Megs soft buff polishing pad, 3M waffle pads were used in some of the tighter areas. But when it came to the bonnet and roof the Megs #83 barely made any difference, and although this was just an enhancement I couldn’t let the car go without sorting these areas out. So the bonnet and roof received a couple of passes of 3M fast cut and ulrtafina mix, then refined with Menz 203s on a blue waffle polishing pad.
These were the kind of results I was getting.
Not perfect by any means but with the time I had I was pretty happy, once the stage 1 polish was complete and my pads were left looking like this.
I cleansed the paintwork with CG EZ cream and this was topped of with Vics concourse, sealed the wheels with FK1000, dressed tyres with AS highstyle, exhaust polished with Autousol, plastics dressed with Megs hyper dressing.
As always thanks for looking.
