Today brought back a previous customer with his Saxo VTS. The vehicle had previously had a 1-step machine enhancement 9 months ago.

Since the the car has been in and out of the bodyshop to perfect the full Euro look – full respray in its original colour plus a gloss black roof and a lovely set of Mini Lite 13″ deep dish alloys.

The plan was to correct and refine any remaining marks left by the bodyshop with a 1-step machine polish with Dodo Juice Lime Prime to enhance the finish.

The package performed on this vehicle was Gold.

Firstly the alloys were cleaned with an all purpose cleaner as they were new and only needed manufacturer residues removed – as well as on the tyres when they were stretched onto the alloy.

The usual paintwork cleanse was undertaken starting with snow foam.

The clay bar removed limited amounts of contaminants as the vehicle was so well maintained plus its recent bodywork.

This is about as bad as they clay bar got per panel.

The vehicle was then masked up and ready for machine polishing.

Capturing defects of the vehicle was hard to capture but generally the paintwork was mainly effected by hologramming and light swirls – here are a few befores and afters of the paintwork.
