Update time. A couple of weeks ago I decided to return the front end of the car back to it's original look.

The previous owner had sprayed the upper grill surround gloss black and the lower bumper lip wrapped in gloss black to match.

The wrap was starting to peel and the grill surround stone chipped.

So I ordered a used surround off eBay and sprayed it to match the paint work.

Annoyingly the wrap on the bumper had been tucked behind the lower grill which meant having to remove the front bumper just to get the wrap off!

Pics of before:



After:



Also due to working at the weekends and not having much spare time to my self, I decided to treat the car to a light enhancement detail at a local detailers.

Sorry I don't have any before or after shots only this short walk around video.

Standard silver grill surround looks so much better

Earlier on in this thread I mentioned that I was thinking of getting an St220. Well, it happened at the weekend, and here it is



Such a smooth car and they drive so well. Wanted a black one really, but ended up buying this. I hate the colour of the wheels, they look dirty even when they're clean lol Thought they didn't look too bad when I first see it. I want to get them refurbed as soon as I can

Time for an update. Apologies in advance for the complete lack of photos in the first half of this thread. I had no phone/camera last week but managed to pick up a galaxy S7 this Monday so there's pics later on.

So after having the mondeo detailed i was very happy with how it was looking. However after a few weeks i noticed the performance of the sealant had reduced. The paint work still felt slick and was repelling dirt but both the beading and sheeting seemed to have decreased.
So last weekend Saturday began with the usual wash. Then unusually the weather held off for the rest of the afternoon so i decided to apply some DJ supernatural micro prime by hand with an AF foam applicator. By the time I'd got round the whole car it was getting dark so i packed up for the evening and crossed my fingers for good weather on Sunday.
Sunday arrived and the weather held off long enough for me to apply an lsp. I'd taken advantage of the recent AF Halloween offer and purchased a pot of the new Fusion hybrid wax and had been looking forward to trying it out.
I gave the car a quick wipe down with some QD and moved onto applying the wax. I found fusion a little tricky to apply but im sure it was down to the ambient temp of 6 Celsius. By the time I'd finished waxing it was getting dark and a little damp so i retreated inside and had to wait until the next day to see the results.
Monday was a busy day but I managed to get into town and buy my new phone. The car looked great but i didn't have time for pics.
This brings us up to this weekend and after a weeks worth of driving to and from work thr ST needed a clean...and this time i had a camera

Before


Cleaning method and equipment.
The wheels were first, starting with a pre soak of BH auto foam applied via pump sprayer at 5% then rinsed. followed by a wash with AF revolution using valet pro detailing brushes and a DJ SN wheel mitt then rinsed. Moving onto the body.
BH autofoam was applied to lower half of the car at 5% with a pump sprayer and left to dwell. The whole car was then rinsed followed by BH auto foam being applied to the whole car but this time through a cyc foam cannon.
Whilst the foam dwelled all nooks and crannies were cleaned with VP detailing brushes.
The car was then rinsed again followed buy a two bucket wash with sonax red summer shampoo and a microfiber madness incredimitt. I then sheet rinsed with an open hose and dried with a gyeon silk dryer snd sonus carnuba spritz.
The wheels were dried the same way and the tyres finished with DJ SN tyre dressing.

After


Thanks for reading.
