    White Arcticish Corsa detail :)

    Hahahahahahahaha....

    Ok me and Macca went up to see LeeLee to pick up some bits and have a play with the Corsa... Wasnt too sure about white Vauxhall paintwork because i havent spent much time on it before *cough cough* so just did in one day what i did on mine in 3 weeks..

    What a fantastic car and looks superb so much that someone i know wanted to sell his veccy for one

    Today i am using a test wax ive been given and had a small while and i wanted to see how it works on white as durability so far from it isnt bad at all..

    Car dirty




    Transport wax love it in the sills running out continually





    Car citrus-degreased





    Wheels cleaned with zymol wheel cleaner a pepperminty smell but in my opinion not very strong but good enough for these wheels today





    car then sprayed off , no snow foam today as not really needed





    Car washed off with zymol sponge and 2 bucket method using chem guys maxi suds shampoo





    then sprayed off and clayed using maxi suds as lube and sonus green claybar





    Car then dried





    and taken into LeeLee workshop for masking up





    Paint readings taken approx 130 to 140 across the board





    Paintwork inspected








    and found this which i didnt like





    out came LeeLee daisy disc and the man removed it for me





    LeeLee uses Dove moisturiser and Fairy Liquid and wanted me to point this out





    Once removed





    area and panel machined with 3m fine compund





    then extra fine compound





    then ultrafina allover





    and the result imperfection free





    Rest of car then machined and paintwork corrected














    and gloss black roof came up superb





    car then waxed all over and left on for approximately 15 minutes





    Rest of car finished off





    and finally brushed crevices etc





    FINAL RESULTS















































    Heavenly Paintwork is simply Heaven Itself.

    Top drawer again Marc. Any gen on the wax?? PM if you want to keep it under wraps, or if you'd rather not say atm, that's cool.

    I was shocked when I saw the CDTi badge on the back, the car is very well done, I like the colour of the grille.

    No the wax is absolutely under wraps and ive been testing it for 3 months now... Very nice though..

    The car is LeeLee,s who owns a body shop who does most of our vxr repairs and obviously he has a full vxr kit and wheels on the car , it looks awesome..

    Class job there. The corsa looks really good with the roof and wheels.
    What is the LeeLee daisy disc? what was the defect it was removing?
