Cool Race Valeting Vs Arden Blue Corsa VXR janspeed demo car

Today saw me head upto Wiltshire (Salisbury) to the Janspeed Head Quarters to carry out a correction detail on there Demo car a Corsa Vxr.

On arrival at 8am, had a quick tour of the workshops and some right beasts in there too, mk2 escort running a 200sx engine, ford gtd (gt40 based) mg racecar and a few others toys too.

It was funny as there was a valeting company based in the grounds of the industrial and the bloke came straight over and said 'so whats so f*****g good about this £250 valet' OMG what have we here.....

Don't even get me started lol.

Even tried selling a detail to the MD of Janspeed for his BMW 5 series, wasn't having any of it, I asked him where he takes it to be cleaned, you've guessed it the Polish


Popped over to the unit where the car was stored and covered in dust, not too dirty so rolled outside to start the wash process.

Wheels first with some AS Smartwheels, and a selection of brushes, the tyres and arches with g101.

Next up a pre soak citrus cleaner to the lowers and rinsed, then a foam of apc to strip old protection, this was left to dwell for 5 mins then rinsed.
Next a 2bm wash using a z sponge and zaino wash, then rinsed.

Next up clayed with zaino clay and lt as lube nt that much came off just the odd bit of tar, then rinsed and dried.

Now rolled into the unit to tape up and start the polishing, started of with the same combo I used on the black 1 @ the weekend as I knew this worked for the same car.

The was a few areas the owner told about the rear quarter where it had been badly repaired, I also spotted a couple of bits where the bodyshop/dealers had make burned the petrol cap lip, so had to be carefull and tape that up.

Luckily I was working a treat again along, testing on the bonnet and corrected first hit, so carried and machined the whole car and then buffed of the residue.

This was followed by an IPA wipedown to clean the paint from the menz oils, followed by a coat of Swissvax Best Of Show, this was applied to the whole car and left to cure while I pottered and did the rest, dressing tyres, polishing exhuast, cleaning windows and dressing engine and plastics with 303 aerospace protectant.

Then a final buff of and rolled ouside to catch a bit of what sun we had.

I did take some before pics, but due to the lighting they didn't cme ut very well.





the rest are rubbish.

Anyway heres the finished article some 9 1/2 hrs later.





















some brinkmann shots as we had a lack of sun.















































Thanks for looking
All comments welcome as usual.

Thanks Mike

Had my work cut out today time wise for a correction detail and engine, never thought I was going to get it finished on time.

Day of rest tomorrow watching my mate paint the unit, hopefully anyway....

nice work, looking great. Hope the Valeter saw it finished (see how much he's got to learn to even come close to competing)
