    Fiesta RS Turbo enhancement detail

    I did an enhancement detail on a friends Fiesta RS Turbo, this is really well looked after by the owner but isn’t a garage queen as it gets used and enjoyed by the on a regular basis.

    Products and equipment used

    Dodo Lime prime
    Dodo supernatural hybrid
    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
    I4detailing orange clay bar
    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 dirt on it, the car was then snowfoamed using a mix of megs hyper wash and snowfoam .Whilst this did its stuff I cleaned the wheels using the bilberry wheel cleaner and various wheel brushes, these alloys are in good condition but have just been damaged by a tyre fitter whilst get new tyres fitted once the owner has sorted this with the garage he is going to have them powder coated at a new company that has just opened up in the town.

    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) I4 detailing clay bar which didn’t really pull much from the paint work except some slight over spray 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 and the bonnet vents removed to be polished separately , a couple of quick 50/50 using the lime prime and 3m yellow polishing pads before getting on with the rest car.











    Then started to work my way round the rest of the car













    50/50 0n the bonnet



    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. Giving a cracking glossy finish to the paint that even the owner was taken a back by as he could believe the finish left by the lime prime could be bettered.

    Exhaust was polished up using Autosol and 00 grade wire wool

    Before



    After







    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 by the owner and the tyres giving a coat of Valet pro tyre dressing.

    Leaving me with this.
