    Ferrari 355gts Enhancement Detail

    Ferrari 355gts Enhancement Detail

    Car before I start














    Wheels cleaned with Bilt Hamber Auto Wheel cleaner and various wheel brushes, wheel woolys and wash mitts, 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.












    Some photos showing condition of paint before polishing.

    Beautiful car, and a job well done. I'd love to ditch the air con work and learn how to detail properly. It must be a real sense of satisfaction to end your day looking over something like that.

    The design of your car exposure your status.
    Concept cars are not put into production directly since they are frequently designed to boast what a car manufacturer can do.The aerodynamic and innovative design of the car helps it stand out among other concept cars.It’s a car lovers paradise.
