The work was done by OCDclean Detailing in Connah's Quay, North Wales. It was an Enhancement Detail with ceramic treatment using Carpro CQuartz (additional cost and time) for protection and ease of maintenance over the next two years.
Leigh from OCD worked on it from 8am to 7pm, so a fair bit of work went into it, and all the work was on the outside.
The Enhancement detail means:
First up the wheels are cleaned inside and out (where accessible) using a safe non acidic wheel cleaner, various brushes and wheel woollies
Wheel arches and tyres are scrubbed with an all purpose cleaner/degreaser
The vehicle is treated to a thick layer of snow foam including the wheels and wheel arches
All door shuts, hinges, petrol cap, badges, gaps and rubbers are agitated with a soft detailing brush and an all purpose cleaner
The vehicle is then safe washed with a soft mitt using a PH neutral shampoo and the two bucket method
The lower half of the car is sprayed with a specialist cleaner to aid in removing of tar spots safely and effectively
A fall out remover is applied to the vehicle
The whole vehicle is then treated to a specialist clay bar to remove bonded contaminates leaving a perfectly clean surface ready for polishing
After a full inspection and the right pad and polish combination has been chosen to maximise cut and gloss in the time restraints of the package all painted surfaces then receive a single stage machine polish using either a flex rotary or rupes dual action machine which will remove very light scratches, light swirling, holograms and wash marring this massively improves the gloss and clarity to the paintwork giving your vehicle that well cared for new lease of life
All painted surfaces are then given a thorough wipe down with an IPA solution to remove any left over polishing oils and then the finish is inspected. This stage will also ensure the surface is perfectly clean to aid in the correct bonding of the wax or sealant maximising the durability of the product
A high grade carnauba wax or synthetic sealant is then applied for long last protection in the forth coming months
A specific wheel sealant is then applied to all four faces of the wheels which will prevent the build up of brake dust and make future maintenance a breeze
All exterior brightwork is hand polished and sealed including the exhaust tips
All exterior plastic trim, tyres, arches and bumpers are dressed and brought back to life
Finally the car has a complete wipe down using a luxury quick detailer and inspected, once I am happy with the results of the detail the car will then be ready for collection
Here are some before and after shots:
The paintwork was ****** up by the previous owner and the dealership "washing and polishing" the car.
