    Some photos of the car before I start












    The car was then given its first coat of snow foam whilst this was dwelling I went round the car using APC in a foaming head bottle cleaning the fuel filler area and various gaps and grills. The snowfoam was then blasted off with the pressure washer, and then the car was given another coat of the same mix snowfoam and the car was washed using the 2 bucket method with grit guards in both buckets and a Carpro lambswool wash mitt.
    The car was then rinsed off using an open ended hose and I then went round the car with Tardis which was left to go to work before being wiped down with microfibre clothes. The car was then given a coat of Ironx again left to do its stuff before the car was washed doing using the pressure washer.
    The car was clayed using citrus bling and water mix (10 to 1) and a Bilt hamber soft clay bar which helped to pull more contaminates from the paint work it was then rewashed using the same method and dried using the woolly mammoth.
    The arches where next and they where sprayed with APC and cleaned using various brushes and a noodle wash mitt. They where then sprayed with Tardis which was left do its stuff whilst I moved onto the next arch before going back and being wiped down with a microfibre cloth. The engine bay was sprayed with APC and left do dwell before being given a tickle with a soft detailing brush before being rinsed with the pressure washer and dressed with Megs Hyper dressing.

    A few shots using my site lights I then taped the car up and went round with various yellow 3m pads and Scholl s17+ polish some panels required the use of S3 Gold on green 3m pads after polishing each panel was given a wipe down with carpro eraser after polishing to check finish and remove any polishing oils.
    I then went round the car and applied a coat of Prima Amigo using the DA and the lake county pad which was left before being buffed using Uber buffing towels.

    The car was given 2 coats of the Swissvax Best Of Show wax leaving wax to bond for 30min and approx 60min between each coat again buffed using Uber buffing towels.

    The plastic trim was dressed using Carpro Dlux which is a cracking product which a little goes a long way and gives a stunning finish.
    After this I cleaned the glass and gave them all 2 coats of Autobrite repel and also gave the arches coat of hyper dressing and dressed the tyres using the Valet pro tyre dressing. Alloys sealed using 2 coats of Chemical guys Jetseal 109












































    Seats cleaned and fed with Furniture Clinic Kit






    Exhaust`s where cleaned up using Auto Finesse metal polish and 00 grade wire wool





    Some for the beading fans

    This car was done over a couple of days as they are a big old beast to work your way round, ironx is left for a few minutes to work its magic then rinsed and reapply if needed
