    Today has been booked in for sometime now, just so happens it fell the same time as the other VXR8 I did.

    It was booked in for a protection detail plus engine bay and interior using Dodo juice products.

    On first arrival the car looked in pretty good shape this morning at 9:30

    Befores:





















    Firstly the wheels were soaked in AS Smart wheels and the tyres and arches cleaned using g101, while the smart wheels was left to soak I sprayed the engine bay with some virasol via 5 ltr pump sprayer.

    Before:









    Afters:









    I then went back and cleaned the wheels using a EZ detail brush and some swissvax style brushes.

    Next up was all the door/boot shuts with again swissvax style brush and some g101 and then rinsed with the kranzle.

    The car was then pre-soaked in some citrus de-greaser









    Then left for 2 mins before rinsing.





    Next up was some ssf through new autobrite lance











    This was left for 5 mins then rinsed.

    Then washed using 2bm a Z sponge and some b2bm shampoo, then rinsed using DI Vessel and open ended hose.

    Now to see the defects as the sun was out shining nice and bright. :doublesho









    Some pretty heavy swirling and marring, this was only in for a protection no correction but still needed to reduce these buggers.

    Out with the pc and some menz FF on a megs finishing pad.

    Not bad for a quick pass



    The whole car polished using this method then followed up using LP lite via foam applicator panel at a time and buffed.

    The car was then given its first coat of Dodo Purple haze and left to cure for 30 mins while I polished the exhausts and dressed the tyres and arches.





    This was then buffed off and then I dressed all the plastics with some black wow.

    Now Coffee time and then dressing the engine bay with plastic and rubber dressing.

    I then cleaned the exterio windows using megs glass cleaner and my glass cloths :thumb:

    Now a couple of hrs had passed so I could still another coat of purple haze on and then left for 20 mins and buffed.

    Heres the exterior/engine bay finished just got the interior to do in the morning and then seal it with some Dodo red mist.

























    Now for some befores:



    After:



    Before:



    After:



    Before:



    After:



    Total time taken was 7 hrs

    All comments welcome as usual.

    Another fantastic piece of work! I thought the alloys were meant to be that anthracitey type colour until you'd cleaned them. Very impressive
