    Race Valeting Vs White TT Roadster Dodo Juice Supernatural Detail

    Today I had booked in 9 mth old white TT 3.2 Roadster for a Dodo Juice Supernatural special winter detail
    After a chat with the onwer Andy prior to booking the detail, I advised that a winter protection detail would be the best bet for this time of year due to it being white and cleaned once a week.
    The car is being booked in apr/may time for a full correction due to poor dealership prep and leaving loads of swirls.
    On arrival the car wasn't to bad just a bit of grime nothing major as its cleaned thoroughly once a week.
    Befores:









    Firstly the wheels were cleaned using some AS Smartwheels this was left to soak for a few mins then agitated using a selection of brushes and then rinsed.
    Next up was to clean the door/boot shuts using some g101 and a swissvax style brush then rinsed using the kranzle.
    Then the car was pre-soaked using some warm citrus de-greaser on the lowers and left to dwell for 5 mins before rinsing, next up was a foaming using some bilt hamber this again was left to dwell for 5 mins before rinsing.
    Then out came the 2 buckets with my Z sponge and some Dodo Juice Born 2 be mild shampoo and then thoroughly washed and then rinsed ready for claying.
    Today the clay bar used was the sonus green and some LT as lube, the car was pretty clean and only some small contaminations removed and a slight bit of overspray from the front wings.
    Before:

    After:

    Then the car was re rinsed and then dried using my RV ulimate water guzzler and some LT as a drying aid.
    Next stage was the Pre-wax cleansing for this I used the Dodo LP via a foam applicator, 2 panels at a time then buffed off.
    This was then silky smooth ready for a coat of clearkote vanilla moose hand glaze to be applied, it this stuff dries so fast It was panel at a time today then buffed.
    This was finally topped off with a coat of Dodo Supernatural this was left to cure for 20 mins while I dressed the tyres with some espuma rd-50, cleaned the windows with my glass cloth and some megs glass cleaner.
    The interior was the fully hoovered and then all plastics and leather cleaned using some mild g101 and a mf, the leather was then conditioned using some sonus leather conditioner.




    Finally the wax was buffed off and the exhausts cleaned, and the a final inspection and a quick going over with some duragloss 951 to give it that extra bling.
    Now the afters:













    Finally I would like to thank Andy for supplying me with coffee all day and for the chat stopping me from getting board.
    Total time taken was 6 1/2 hrs.
    Thanks for looking
    Paul

    No mate, Race Valeting is just Paul, based in Portsmouth.

    Top work yet again Paul. Out of interest, did the clearkote glaze add anything to the finish?? I would havethought the wax would have bonded better going straight to wax from the LP.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Thanks for that Gaz.

    Yeah sorry folks only me I'm affraid.

    I've tried using the clearkote a few times now and have found it to add the extra wet look to the paint that I was after.

    I must agree though the SN does go great ontop of the LP, but the glaze just adds that extra bit of bling IMHO.

    Yeah, only about 5 mins from me , probably won't be able to afford such expertise though.
    Done a superb job on that TT, bet the owner was well happy.
