    The car before I start




















    I cleaned the wheels using the bilberry wheel cleaner and various wheel brushes and a noodle wash mitt, the bilberry got the worst of the muck off just leaving some iron build up to be removed by the Ironx.










    I started by giving the lower parts of the car a coat of the valet pro orange pre wash, which was left to dwell before being pressure washed off. The car was then given its first coat of snow foam made up of the valet pro PH neutral snowfoam and a shot of Meg’s hyper wash The snowfoam was then blasted off with the pressure washer, and then the car was given another coat of the same mix snowfoam and whilst this was still on the car I washed it using Meg’s hyper wash and the 2 bucket method and a lambswool wash mitt.















    The car was then rinsed off using a open ended hose and before claying 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 clayed using citrus bling and water mix( 10 to 1) and a Bilt hamber soft clay bar which didn’t really pull much from the paint work it was then rewashed using the same method and dried using a Uber microfiber drying towel.

    The car was given 2 coats of Jetseal 109 leaving about 30 min between each coat these where applied using a german applicator pad and left to cure before buffing using poorboys microfibre clothes. The car was then given 2 coats of the 476 wax which were also given 30mins between coats and buffed using Uber buffing towels

    Whilst waiting between coats all the exterior plastics and under arches were given a coat of Talos protectant and chrome badges polished using Werkstat Prime Acrylic. All the glass was cleaned using Rainx and alloys sealed using 2 coats of Jetseal 109, tyres dressed with valet pro tyre dressing.

    Exhausts where cleaned up using Autosol metal polish and 00 grade wire wool

    Great results Shaun and a nice choice of products

    Have to say I'm warming to these ST's after the performance blue one I did a few weeks ago, although the orange goes nicely with the name

    Did you not think about using a glaze to get a bit more depth?

    Cheers Jen, it wasn`t the option the owner wanted to take he just wanted a straight forward protection detail.
