    Today was time for my client to have his protection detail on his X5 I hadn't seen the car for a good few months and it was in a bit of a state.

    Arrived at 9am to get the washing done before the sun was beeming down.

    Pics taken from both my camera and IPHONE so sorry for some different quality pics

    Anyway heres some before pics both exterior and interior:



























    Wheels:

    Firstly I cleaned wheels using some AS Smartwheels with a selection of brushes, the arches and tyres were cleaned with a brush and some APC.

    Before:



    After:



    Once all the wheels and arches were cleaned I then moved on to the pre-wash stage

    Pre-wash

    I went round and sprayed some citrus de-greaser to the lower half of the car,





    This was then rinsed and then onto the snow foam stage.

    Snow Foam

    Today I used the sample of Tims new snow foam, worked pretty well and foamed up rather nice too. This was left to dwell for 5 mins before being rinsed off.







    Once it was all rinsed off I then washed the car using a wool mitt and some gold class shampoo and of course the 2bm with grit guards. Then rinsed and then dried using miracle towels and last touch as a drying aid.

    Paintwork Cleansing

    I then got out the pc with some Dodo juice Lime prime and cleansed the paintwork ready for some Dodo Supernatural.
    I applied the SN and left to cure for 10 mins then buffed off, Whilst it was curring I dressed the tyres and arches and exterior plastics using CG New look trim gel.

    Then I tackled the interior which was given a good hoover and clean using some APC, the leather was then treated using some Zaino Leather in a bottle.

    Finally the glassed was cleaned and the exhausts were polished using some megs NXT.

    Finished Pics























    Total time taken was 5hrs
    Merc s500 Dodo supernatural Write coming later on too.

    Thanks for reading
    Paul
