Our client had only recently acquired this iconic piece of engineering excellence and wanted the paintwork to really sparkle.
We started by washing the wheels with a proprietary alloy cleaner to remove all traces of general road dirt and brake dust and then pressure washed them together with the wheel arches. After inspection we then went round with some G&T to remove the tar specks and then rewashed again, another inspection – “Clean”.
We then moved onto the bodywork – starting with a pressure wash to remove most of the general dirt and then continuing on with the 2 bucket system and a selection of brushes before washing off again.
After inspection of the paintwork to ensure all general grime had been removed we started the claying process to remove any and all contaminants from the paint surface and windows. When we were happy with the results the car was re-washed and dried using soft towels and a water dispersant.
Whilst the exterior was drying we attended to the interior by firstly vaccuuming carpets, then the dashboard, vents, dials steering wheel etc. The leather was in good condition, so after a clean down it was all treated with a good quality leather feed. Finally after cleaning and checking the whole interior we moved onto the paintwork.
We applied cleaner to the paintwork prior to applying a coat of Raceglaze 55 by hand. The metal flake really stood out in the sunlight.
Turning to the wheels we applied some Rim Wax – again to bring out the sparkle and also to seal the surface.
We cleaned and dusted around the engine compartment and also polished the exhausts.
We cleaned and polished the windows, inside and out.
Another coat of Raceglaze 55 was applied by hand and prior to the final inspection we applied a finishing glaze, before calling the client – job done.
