Not awful at a quick glance…
The summer is definitely creeping in! With gorgeous weather comes serious bug road kill – firstly the vehicle was given a snow foam to remove the bulk of the grime, as well as softening the larger more stubborn deposits of road kill:
Nooks and crannies agitated:
The bumper, lights, grills and half the bonnet were treated to a purpose made insect remover – this was left for a couple of minutes and was then agitated:
Next up was the wheels…
They were treated to a non-acidic wheel cleaner, which was agitated with various brushes – the alloys were later protected with a highly durable wheel wax; additionally the tyres & arches were cleaned with an all purpose cleaner, then dressed later in the detail.
Next point of interest was the exhaust…
Not overly bad as far as exhaust tips go – they were treated with a metal polish followed by a durable wax for protection.
The vehicle was then clayed to remove the remaining bonded contaminants:
Time for polishing.
Random Defect Shots Before
By no means perfect but a vast improvement on how the paint was before – once the RS kit has been fitted it’ll be time to have her back in for more intense correctional work.
Post-polishing the vehicle was protected with Valentines Concours Wax, glasswork was treated, as were the plastics and rubbers.
Thank you for looking and reading as always – and a big thank you to the owner for their hospitality…
