    Arrow N8 KOW v Matt's Ibis S3

    This detail was done last week before edition 38, Matt wanted me to spruce up the paintwork as it wasn't very white! He's had the car a couple of months and the car was yet to have a proper clean! The last owner must of had it parked under a tree judging by the amount of green around the door hinges etc...

    Onto the detail:





















    Matt wanted the rings taken off, as he was putting black ones on:









    Then onto the wheels:





    Rinsed off:



    Bilberry sprayed onto the wheels:





    Then rinsed:



    Backs of the spokes cleaned:



    APC sprayed onto the tyres:





    Rinsed:



    The 2 buckets after the wheels:



    Car then rinsed & foamed:

    Arrow N8 KOW v Matt's Ibis S3



    Then rinsed:



    Engine was seen to, with Matt's very nice engine cover:





    Sills also:











    Car washed via 2BM & Megs Shampoo Plus, spraying AG Insect remover to the few colonys on his front bumper - lol:





    Car was then clayed with Sonus Green & Last Touch:



    Most of car was like this:



    Rinsed then foamed again:







    Then rinsed and 2BM washed again & then dried:





    Looking miles better after a PROPER wash:





    Paint was then corrected with G220 Menz 3.02 on LC cut pads:





    Then sealed with Jeffs Prime:



    Following that Jeffs sealant:



    I asked my mate George to gimme a hand with interior:







    APC used to wipe down interior:





    Seats wiped over with APC:



    Leathers were cleaned/conditioned/protected with Buffalo. A source told me these seats aren't made by Recaro, Jesus actually makes them

    I believe Matt has Lamin-x his front lights? Hope to see more of these threads popping up soon.
    The photo above is my favourite it compliments the rear facelift lights, BBS CK..Well the whole car really. Paint work looks spotless and very shiny.
    Well done again

    Well what can I say, the finished pics don't even do the car justice, its a shame it was pi$$ing it down on the day of collection as the pics in daylight would have been awesome.

    As nath has said I've had the car a couple of months and TBE its not had my full attention as I've been working away a lot. The last owner must of had it parked under tree as there was green grime everywhere.

    I'm very happy with Nathans work and recommend him to anyone, his attention to detail is unbelievable.

    The owner is happy, that is more than enough feedback for me.

    Awesome car, great detail - just how I'd have mine (don't think it needs to be lowered either).

    That is a thoroughly good job, as are all the other cars on here that you've done. I'm new to the world of detailing and never realized how much is involved. I suppose you could say that I was one of these people who thought and wash and chamois was enough.

    What wheels are those on the car? I think they really set it off nicely.

    That is one seriosly thourough job, and a great finish - good work!

    Forgive my ignorance but what does APC stand for? Also, what is G220 Menz? You mention it here:

    Paint was then corrected with G220 Menz 3.02 on LC cut pads
