    Polished Bliss: Lipstick Red Corvette C6

    This was done over two weeks ago, but as usual, things have been too busy in the meantime to get the write up done! More write up's to some soon too, including one on 33 hrs of show preparation on an Evo VI. Anyway, I digress, back to the Corvette...

    The story for this one: the owner and her husband have just moved over from the US, and the car was shipped over on a roll on roll off boat. Some damage occurred en route, including a cracked windscreen and a graze to the tip of the front bumper. Furthermore, salt spray has severely etched most of the bodywork. However, with winter fast approaching, correction isn't necessarily needed until next spring, so the owner settled on a Zyml winter preparation detail...

    Before











    Process

    Foamed with Meguiars Safe Degreaser and rinsed
    Washed with Meguiars Shampoo Plus and rinsed again
    Detarred with Autosmart Tardis and rinsed again
    Clayed with Meguiars Detailing Clay Mild and rinsed again
    Wheels cleaned with Menzerna Gel 7.5 and rinsed
    Dried with 1600W Black & Decker leaf blower

    Paint and glass cleansed/glazed with Zyml HD-Cleanse
    Paint and glass (exc. windscreen) protected with Zyml Vintage
    Alloys protected with Poorboy's Wheel Sealant
    Tyres dressed with Blackfire Long Lasting Tyre Gel
    Arch liners and trims dressed with Meguiars All Season Dressing
    Exhaust tips polished with Meguiars NXT All Metal Polysh

    Interior vaccumed and dressed with Zyml Vinyl
    Interior glass cleansed/glazed with Zyml HD-Cleanse
    Leather warmed and fed with Zyml Treat

    Time taken: 8 hours (it's a big car!)

    Afters

    Another car to add to the variety of your portfolio. And a cracking finish on it. Looks the part now. And yet again the sun shines for you up in NE land!
