56k Icon Miglior Detailing Ltd: Aston Martin DB9 -30 Hour Turn Around!!





Hello, and welcome along to another Miglior write up!

Under the spotlight today is an Aston martin DB9 in Tungsten Silver. Now, this car is 4 years old with just short of 20k miles on the clock. The owner of this car used this car whatever the circumstances, itís been a second car but it has done its fair share of touring around Europe. After 4 years of this, itís bound to need an overhaul. After looking for a Detailer in Lancashire the owner quickly called and booked the car in.





It hasnít really been washed a great deal, which on the face of it isnít ideal, but although the paint is very dirty, it isnít too badly scratched or swirled. It has probably been washed around 15 times during its life.
Now, with that being the case, dirt has stuck the surface and sat there for a long time. This will need a lot of decontamination, but underneath there shouldnít be too much paintwork to correct. The paint finish looks dull and lifeless, but not too swirly!

Every inch of the car was either covered in moss, leaves or dirt. The alloy wheels had also taken a fair beating during its life up until now, and with them being diamond cut, they would need some work to correct this. The interior was also needing a new lease of life with the leather showing signs of ingrained dirt and oil.


Summary of the work carried out:

- Full Diamond Cut Refurb of all Alloy wheels.
- Perform enhancement detail to remove buffer trails/dull looking paint
- Full wheel & Arch Detail
- Perform deep interior detail paying close attention to the leather
- Protect the car for the winter.
- Degrease Engine bay and protect
- Touch up paint along passenger sill




Well, on with the write up!

Here are some shots before the car was touched.





The wheels







The ingrained dirt all over the car!







The paint which has unfortunately been knocked off.





Boot Shuts





Engine bay













Interior





















Now, itís time to get some work done! First up is the interior and deep leather clean.

To get a good side by side idea of the difference made, I taped up half of the leather on the driverís seat.



The leather was gently scrubbed and treated with Swissvax products.
