    Ford Capri 280 Brooklands enhancement detail

    I Know its not a Audi but there maybe some old skool ford lovers on here

    Ford Capri 280 Brooklands enhancement detail

    I did an enhancement detail on a friend’s Ford Capri 280 Brooklands, this is really well looked after by the owner and is only used as a summer fun car but gets well used in the summer going to shows and car meets.
    Andy had already removed the front/rear bumpers, end caps, front grill and headlamp surrounds


    Products and equipment used

    Dodo Lime prime
    Dodo supernatural hybrid
    General microfibres
    Poorboys deluxe mega towel
    Uber microfiber towels
    Uber drying towel
    3m yellow pads 150mm 75 mm
    Valet pro bilberry wheel cleaner
    Valet pro tyre gel
    Valet pro citrus bling
    Valet pro PH neutral snowfoam
    Meg’s hyper wash
    Autosmart Tardis
    German applicator
    Autosol metal polish
    00 grade wire wool
    Bilt Hamber auto clay bar (soft)
    Race Glaze Colour enhance
    Various wheel brushes
    Makita rotary polisher
    Karcher pressure washer
    Noodle wash mitt
    Uber Microfiber drying towel
    Poorboys microfibre clothes
    Snow foam gun
    3m masking tape
    Finish kare 425
    Jetseal 109


    The car before I start



















    I started by giving the car blast off with the pressure washer as it only really had light covering of dust on it, the car was then snowfoamed using a mix of megs hyper wash and snowfoam .Whilst this did its stuff the inside of the petrol flap and trims were cleaned using a soft brush and I cleaned the wheels using the bilberry wheel cleaner and various wheel brushes, these alloys are in very good condition with only a slight mark on the rim of 1 wheel.
















    This was then blasted off with the pressure washer, and then the car was given another coat of the same mix snowfoam and washed using Meg’s hyper wash and the 2 bucket method and a wash mitt before being power rinsed off and dried. The lower parts of the car and inner arch lips where sprayed with Tardis which was left to do its stuff before being wiped down with a microfibre cloth







    The car was then rinsed off using a open ended hose and left wet before claying using citrus bling and water mix( 4 to 1) clay bar which didn’t really pull much from the paint work except some slight tree sap from the roof it was then rewashed using the same method and dried using a Uber microfiber drying towel.






    Car was then taped up using 3m masking tape, a couple of quick 50/50 using the lime prime and 3m yellow polishing pads before getting on with the rest car.

    So got some beading shots













    Full bonnet





    After polishing my way round the car with the rotary, I applied the Dodo supernatural hydrid wax/sealant using a german applicator pad and left to cure before buffing using poorboys microfibre clothes.
























    Exhaust was polished up using Autosol and 00 grade wire wool and general microfibers.

    Before







    After







    During the showers i dressed all the rubber trim with the race glaze Colour enhance





    And hand polished the light surrounds using limeprime and a german applicator pad

    The car was then given a final wipe down using Finishkare 425, and the glass was cleaned using neat citrus bling and the wheels were given 2 coats of Jetseal 109 and the tyres giving a coat of Valet pro tyre dressing.The car was then tucked back up into the garage whilst Andy repainted the bumpers







    Due to the weather it was nearly 2 weeks before I could get some finished shots.































    A couple of interior shots.

    I think most car lovers appreciate the older fords. I do anway. Escorts MK1 and 2, Capris and even the mk1 Fiesta's always get the thumbs up from me.

    Great car, my mate had a 280 "Brooklands" about 5 years ago.

    I'll hopefully one day get to be detailing my XR2 once it's finally back from the bodyshop!

    Absolutely love that still want one now and will always remember doing mach 3 down a particular dual carriageway with a mate having just bought his 3.0 but sadly he literally wrapped it around a lampost in the wet not long after.I can also see that like me you have the cleaning OCD.I desperately want a machine polisher though.
