I was invited back by the owner of the Aston Martin DB9 to spend a few hours pampering his daily runner, an E-320 Avantgarde. I planned to whiz around the outside, cleanse, and put down some protection then treat the leather to a good feed. An early start and the forecast doesnt look too good. Hmm.

Wheels werent too bad some bad pitting on the inside though and wheel-weight glue remains.. The front end was covered in kamikaze bugs, just the usual for the mile-munchers! Sills/shuts were quite grubby, G101 saw to this. The black window-trim was quite badly stained.. Werkstat PRIME Strong was able to sort this later on in the day.. Wheels G101 for the rim and arches Meguiars Super-Degreaser for the tyres Tyres scrubbed, arches cleaned with a long reach Vikan brush and my make-shift EZ Wheel Brush worked the inner-rim. Wheel mitt & small brush used to clean the front facing. The wheel facing was quite badly corroded. A lot of the build-up on the inner rim wouldnt shift either would benefit coming off the car here for a proper seeing too. Sills and shuts G101 used again here.. The odd splash of Degreaser on the hinge surrounds to remove thick sludge build-up. Before: After: Before: After: Wash process First up, G101 was left to soak up the bug splats on the front end, lower bonnet, screen and mirrors. First foaming session and some of the smaller, intricate areas were cleaned with a detail brush. All surrounds/crevices were quite built-up. I had a feeling claying would be very beneficial today! Car was re-foamed with ValetPRO SnowFoam and given the Two-Bucket wash with DoDo Juices Born To Be Mild shampoo.. Severe lack of protection on this motor: The Merc had probably the biggest tar build-up Ive ever seen! Take 10 minutes, some Tardis and a clean Microfibre cloth. Et voila!
