    VXR TLC for my RO (Michelob)!!

    James (Michelob) has had his VXR for nearly one year now and the poor car has never been treated with any product (wax, sealant etc etc).

    So I kindly offered my services!!

    The main aim for today was to get the paintwork alot deeper and also to increase the reflection. The results were amazing!!!!!

    Process:

    - Washed (2 bucket method)
    - Clayed
    - Washed (2 bucket method)
    - Rotary polish using Lake Country Light cutting pad & Sonus SFX-2 enhance polish (2 passes)
    - Pre Wax Lime Primer
    - Dodo Juice Rainforest rub

    Before:



    After:



    As you can see the paintwork is alot deeper and so much more clearer than before!!! James was over the moon!!!

    Whilst James was busy apply the Pre Wax, I had a go at cleaning the engine bay.







    Spotless now!!!!

    Mine very clean after my hard work on Monday:





    James hard at work:





    And pics once the car was finished:





















    It now looks fantastic and the best thing is that James is over the moon with the results (invoice is in the post)

    Few of the 2 VXR's together:













    Make sure you keep it clean for PVS!!!!

    If anyone in the Beds, North Bucks & Herts Region ever needs to get their motor detaling please feel free to PM me

    Looks great, looks like its been detailed week in week out not just this week. Would be getting in touch with you myself if i didn't have so many fine scratches in mine

    I'm also in the position where i've never really properly detailed a car before but am picking it up as i go along (hopefully.)

    Easy to remove the scratches, James had a bad mark on his door which I removed with no problem
