Detailer's Domain: ES - Spring Clean Up

This ES needed mostly a thorough cleaning. Customer wanted to a shine back on the car. As well remove all the sap and tar that was embedded in the paint. This ES has no swirls or deep scratches enabling us to use Power Finish to achieve the results we needed. Einszett Glanz was used to get the metallic flake to pop!

What was done -

- Wheels were prepped with Sonax Wheel Cleaner and cleaned up with various brushes
- Tires were spritzed down with Adam’s All Purpose Cleaner and washed down
- Wheel wells were cleaned up
- Pre Washed with W99
- Iron Cut
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up
- Clayed
- Dried
- Tires dressed
- Masking
- Paint Measurement
- 1 Step - Menzerna Power Finish with Uber Green Pad
- Inspection with Fenix, 3m Sun Gun, Infratech, and natural sunlight
- Last Step – Einszett Glanz for that metallic flake POP!
- Rubber and Plastics Treated
- Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed
- Exhaust tips cleaned
- Windows were clayed, cleaned, and sealed
- Jambs steam cleaned

- Vac
- Clean Glass
- Leather Cleaned
- Leather Conditioned

- Cleaned
- Dressed

Iron Cut goes to work

3m adhesive remover was used to clean up various sap and tar (Derek spent about 1 hour removing all these from various places on the car)

The car appeared to be cleaned up but the clay bar picked up everything that the Iron Cut did not.

Sorry no pics of Power Finish in action.
