Sat here chilling out after taking the dogs out for a walk in the snow and I remembered I still had a few cars in my photo bucket that I'd not yet posted up, anyway this car came in to us a while back now for an enhancement detail, here's how it went:


On arrival:

Starting things off in the usual manner/routine by cleaning the wheel, Imperial and a selection of brushes used:

Re-rinsed and then on to further decontamination via clay:

So dried off and in to the nice warm unit to get down to business, the paint on first inspection:

Wow fantastic work there, some effort but all worth it to see that amazing car in it's glory. The swirl marks would make you weep! Great to see the after shots though.
