    Arrow N8 KOW v 08 C180 Silver

    Hi Peeps,

    This detail took place yesterday and I was having a constant battle with the weather but it looked as if things were on my side! It belongs to a good friend of mine and is a Mercedes C180 Kompressor with the AMG styling pack and a few nice options.

    On to the car, car was fairly grubby before hand, not to bad, mainly the wheels needed some TLC.











    First I gave the wheels I rinsed off with the Karcher, loosen the grittle & grime.



    Tyres were then scrubbed with Megs Tyre Brush & Megs APC



    Then Bilberry sprayed on the fronts & backs and worked in with the good old Envy brush



    EZ Detail brush was to follow on the backs



    Then a microfibre cloth was used on the inner part of the spokes



    Which were black to say the least!!



    Following Tardis, the backs had come out a treat!



    Megs APC again and Vikan Brus were used on the Arches



    Here were all 4 rims worth of dirt



    A 50/50, back rim untouched, front one cleaned



    Both Done



    Following the Rims, then engine was given a seeing too (Was hardly any dirt at all)



    303 Used



    Resulting in



    Car was then rinsed off



    All the shuts were done via Megs APC & Envy Brush (becoming a favourite of my kit!)









    Car was then foamed & left to dwell





    Car was then rinsed off



    2BM method with Megs Shampoo & MF Wash Mitt



    Car cleaned rigoursly & throughly



    Car was then clayed via Megs Mild Clay & Last Touch

    There is something about this shape Merc that has me going, it just has such a nice design/curves, but its when I see internals of mercs it makes me think twice.

    Car was then re-washed, here are the 2 buckets afterwards



    Spectators had been gathering, LOL, Good old Carson



    Car then dried via leaf blower & Sonus Drying Towel





    Which left me with the following



    I nipped in to have some lunch and came back to the pooring rain! My last gazebo had broke, and haven't bought another as yet, but I will do





    Luckily the rain had stopped, so out with the leaf blower & drying towel again



    Clouds were opening up!



    Jeffs was used today, starting with the prime



    Exhausts were attacked first, via my new 3 amigos (Autosol/Megs Polish/Blackfire Metal Sealant)







    Which took us from this



    To this



    Wheels sealed with Poorboys Wheel Sealant



    Tyres dressed with Blackfire



    Which had taken us from this



    To this



    Interior was hoovered via the George, all panels wiped down with APC including Leathers, glass done via Megs Glass Cleaner

    Even pedals were done



    Which left me with the following
