Pretty much everything in the interior is leather. So I leather cleaned and conditioned everything... the seats, dash, doors, and roof
Gliptone was what I used
Scrubbing away with my leather brush
Leather conditioned by hand and massaged it in to the leather
I let it soak in for a bit then wiped off the remainder for a nice natural finish.
Did I mention it was cold!!!
Brought the tool bag, owners manual, and jack inside for a cleaning.
Tool bag was dirty and disorganized
Cleaned up the bag with some APC and the tools as well
Clean and organized
Leather cleaned and conditioned the owners manual bag
Cleaned the bag that held that jack etc and wiped down the jack and tools
And here they are ready to go back in the car
I took these pics at the final end of the detail but felt it was appropriate to put them here. These are the finished pics of the interior.
Now getting started on the exterior I start off with the wheels.
P21s Wheel Gel was used to clean the rims which is non acidic
Let the rims soak while I attended to the engine bay
I didn't get to aggressive on the engine bay but still did the best I could. Here is a before and after pic
After (still a little wet from the dressing)
Moving on to the rims
Getting in the inner barrel with my handleless EZ brush
Behind the rim
Cleaned the rim face with a micro fibre mitt
And used a foam stick to get in the lug nut area
Rinsed down the car
And sprayed on Prep Wash to strip off any silicones
Then washed the car using the 2 bucket method and a natural sea sponge
Rinsed my sponge off in the water only bucket after every panel or a half a panel
Dryed the car off and brought it in to clay bar it.
Riccardo Clay was used
Measured the paint to see what I was dealing with. The owner had told me that the whole car had been repainted
Masked off the rubber trimmings
And here is what I was up against under 500w halogen lighting
Did a quick test spot to find a combination that worked and here are the results
Now for a few before and afters of the body panels
