    So first job as always, the wheels, using a new wheel gel cleaner (liking it already :thumb:) and the wheel woolies
    from polished bliss:

    Then a pre spray with TFR foam mix through the inline foam injector:

    Cleaned the gaps, grills and badges with a detail brush & also scrubbed the arches with the Vikan:

    Rinsed and washed TBM with lambs wool mits and Shampoo plus:

    Then we moved on to decontaminating the paint work, using Sonus green and born slippy as lube, this car had some
    serious tar contamination, but all over and all tiny bits, (a bit random as iv not seen this on a new car before now) we
    went around the car with tardis before hand and re rinsed to soften it all up but still removed alot:

    Contamination from bonnet:

    From wing:

    From the rear Qt:

    Once that was all sorted out, we got the car dried off and back in the unit to inspect the paintwork, took PTG reading
    these where as expected on a new Aston, bit of variation but good, and as you also expect from an Aston, it had plenty
    of paint defects:

    A closer look and you can see the DA pig tails:

    After some test sections the pad and polish combo that worked best in this instant was scholl concepts S14 and a
    Lake country red pad:

    Then the guys from Mint condition turned up to fit some protection film to the front of the car (customers request):

    So whist that was being done it give me a chance to do the interior, a good vac and dust, followed with a thorough
    wipe down with APC before conditioning the leather with Gliptone:

    WOW! You/your organisation must have some network (and I dont mean orange) to have had the pleasure of prepping the cars in the last few pics!
    Well done top work.
