Scarab Green Renault Clio 172 Heavy Enhancement
 
Loved doing this little beaut. I don't know a great deal about clios but I know this is a little bit rare and that I LOVED the colour

After the usual wash and decon routine the car was dried and pulled into the surgery

It was then taped and sheeted to allow efficient machining and protect sensitive areas

And trims removed

Machining starts

Much better

Bonnet next

And whilst it was up, I did a quick restore on the headlights as they were starting to go and we all know what happens next

Then onto the rear. Behind the rear plate was worst

Before I put the rear lights back in I refined the bumper area

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4628/...497726e9_b.jpgDSC_0772 by Matt Rowe, on Flickr



And did a quick set on the lights before I refit them

Rear plates also

The car was then waxed, and the rear rebuilt

Trims next, whilst off I cleaned

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4668/...b3695db7_b.jpgDSC_0777 by Matt Rowe, on Flickr


And started coating them, as well as wiper arms etc

ALL machining was done with the last cut compound and the car waxed with ODK revere

Great job buddy. Nice to see you doing some quality for a change. Not at all biased.

Great finish Matt. Is that the Last cut compound from that detailer who created it in the states?
