Well this one was a bit of a mess to start with. I had detailed it about January, #16 held up very well, I was very impressed. It was still beading after I washed it.
The process was
Armour All Bug and Tar shampoo (smells like lime)
Intensive Tar remover (really needed it badly)
Clay whole car with Gold class lube
DACP on meguiars red pad @ 5.5/6 on PC where needed
I did try a combination of waxes on each panel to see which looked best and AG EGP was very wet, and good depth, P21s looked wet but not much depth ?? Nattys well that looked very wet and deep! #16 similar to nattys but not as wet. Glanz kinda looked lifeless to say the least ??
Carpet and interior was pretty messy! Including the perspex window was very cloudy this thing took some polishing with Plastix and it look good as new, very suprised!
Just scrubbed the soft top/rag top with some Gold class and it came up well as it had been treated with autoglym twins (cleaner and protector) I guess a month or so back.
The wheels on this thing were horrible but they came up very well with little scrubbing needed, I used the professional wheel cleaner meg's do.
We have a saying in Glasgow that if something is rough or in rough condition then it is "As rough as a badgers ***" and this completely applied to this paintwork it was so very rough and tar galore, difficult to see in this pic cos of the build up of dirt.
Overall view of what I was dealing with now onto the good pics :xyxthumbs
Armour all semi matt was used in the interior to dress the dash etc, leather was Gold class and was cleaned with Extractor and a mixture of some hardware store own brand stuff and meguiars carpet and interior cleaner.
Looks so much better?
Rag top/soft top autoglym protectant drying in and check that clear rear window now. :woot:
All in all this thing was not too difficult to bring back, although there was some deeper scratches that were not repaired completely in order to keep the CC safe!
Everyone was happy and so that means I am !
Just thought i'd post this so you could see some of the meguiars stuff in action.
