Today I had booked in a DW FIRST a Opel Manta GTE which had been through alot of restoration work.
I was working in a bodyshop today so very limited on pics im affraid and NO befores due to a few other lads in the bay with me and didn't want to push my luck.
Firstly the wheels were soaked in smart wheels and left to dwell for 5 mins, the tyres were cleaned using some g101 and the arches.
Next up the car was pre-washed using a hot pw, then foamed and then 2bm and then clayed using some sonus green then re-washed and dried using my Race Valeting Ultimate Water Guzzler Drying towel and some last touch as a drying aid.
The car was then brough into the polishing bay were I gave the polish with some SV Cleaner fluid on a finishing pad via the makita to enhance the gloss and remove any slight marks.
Next the was given a layer of SV Saphir and left for 30 to cure while I hoovered out the interior.
I then buffed off the wax using my Race Valeting super buffing towels.
Next I cleaned the interior with a detailing brush and some g101 to all the dash and vents etc then all was dressed using some poorboys natural look dressing.
The seats were given a quick wipe over with some bio brisk and the leather cleaned/conditioned.
Next I applyed the 2nd layer of saphir and while it was curing I cleaned the windows using my Race Valeting Streak Free Glass Cloth and some megs glass cleaner.
The wheels were then sealed using some jetseal 109 and then topped off with a coat of collinite 476's, the tyres dressed with Espuma rd50, the exhaust polished with megs nxt metal polish, and finally then wax was then buffed off and given a quick spritz with some duragloss 952.
Heres the final pics guys.
Thanks for looking and all comments welcome as normal.
