    Talking Polished Bliss vs Manky White TT

    A nice relaxing end to a busy week with another maintenance plan car in for a protection top up - or at least it should have been! This one is also on a quarterly plan and the owner hadn't the time to wash it at all since the last treatment - so this is approx 4,000 miles worth of crap stuck to the paint!



















    I won't bore you with another lengthy description so I'll just give you the process:

    Wash:

    - Foamed with Hyper Wash @ 60 degrees (twice)
    - Rinsed at high pressure (for approx 15 minutes)
    - Poorboys Bug Squash
    - Rinsed again
    - Wheels done with Megs WB (4:1) and Tardis
    - Tyres/arches/shuts/fuel cap with Megs SD (10:1)
    - Washed with 2BM & Shampoo Plus
    - Tardis
    - Clayed with Megs Mild Clay
    - Engine done with Megs APC (4:1)

    Clean/Protect:

    - Werkstat Acrylic Prime
    - Werkstat Acrylic Jett (4 coats)
    - Werkstat Acrylic Glos wipe down
    - Engine done with 303

    Interior:

    - Hoover
    - APC wipe down
    - Leather feed with Raceglaze leather balm
    - Glass with Megs GCC
    - Shuts with Werkstat Prime Strong


    Wheels/Tyres/Misc:

    - PB wheel Sealant
    - Blackfire Tyre Gel
    - Tailpipes with NXT and then sealed with Blackfire Metal Sealant.

    Afters:































    I wouldnt have usually bothered posting a simple detail like this, but I promised the owner I'd shame him with the before pics!

    That must taking liberties with your service, if a person drove a car without servicing it properly and then returned it to the manufacture with a complaint about the engine theyd by shown the door, youre far too good to your customers, wish I lived closer, then I could take the pi$$ also

    As always a great job and a great read

    You've got to take the rough with the smooth; in all honesty, a thick build up of grime is of no real concern, because the underlying paint still looks in great condition once clean. It's customers that ruin our paint correction work in the space of few months after coming in that do my head in!

    An inspiration to all the white car owners.. i seriously need to take a day off and get on some de-swirling, i remember when my paint used to look as glossy as that!

    Think i'll have to give you guys a ring soon, order some new products.

    *hangs head in shame*

    My work-bus has been washed twice in 10,000 miles

    My excuse is the wheels look much better gun-metal than they do brilliant silver!
