    Seat Leon Enhancement Detail

    Seat Leon Enhancement Detail

    Car before I start
















    Wheels cleaned with Bilberry wheel cleaner and various wheel brushes, wheel woolys and wash mitts. Then given a coat of Iron X, whist this left to do its stuff the arches where cleaned using APC.









    Then the rain started to get heavier so photos stopped and car was then snowfoamed using Valet Pro snowfoam which was left to dwell whilst the gaps and trims where cleaned up using a bottle of APC with a foaming trigger head and a soft Valet Pro detailing brush. The cars was then pressured washed down before a second coat of snowfoam was applied and the car washed using the 2 bucket method and a Carpro lambswool wash mitt. The car was then rinsed and given a coat of Iron X which was left to do its stuff before being rinsed and all he lower sections given a coat of Tardis. The car was then rinsed and clayed using Bilt Hamber mild clay and Valet Pro Citrus Bling and water for lube, car was then rinsed down and brought inside for drying. Sock changed and cracked on lol

    Some photos showing condition of paint before polishing.

    Car was then taped up and I started to polish my way round the car using my Makita rotary and Carpro Fixer polish and yellow 3m pads.







































    The cars was then given a wipe down with Carpro Eraser before being given 2 coats of Carpro Reload plastics dressed with Carpro Perl. Arches dressed with Megs Hyper dressing tyres dressed with Valet Pro tyre dressing, all glass given 2 coats of Autobrite Repel glass sealent.

    Leaving me with this

    Its to protect the seals and any raised edges during polishing with the rotary
