Race Valeting Vs A year old Badly swirled ZAFIRA PART 1

Hi Folks,

Sorry for no write ups lately been really busy with little jobs and not had time to do any write ups.

This was booked in for a full correction and some FK1000P so its nice and easy to maintain, the owner has only just bought the car and was shocked at the state of it.

On arrival the car pretty clean just badly swirled as it had been washed prior to dropping off.



First was was the wheels were cleaned using some bilberry, and a selection of brushes, the tar was then cleaned off the inners using Tardis.

The arches and shuts cleaned using g101 and pressure rinsed off.

The car was then washed using fairy to strip off the dealership protection, next up the car was clayed using dodo grey.

Before:



After:



The car was then rinsed off again using DI water and dried using a miracle towel and LT.

Now time to inspect the paintwork
Heavy swirling,marring.





























Measurements were then taken which were the healthy readings of 130+

Started off with the bonnet and some menz ip 3.02 on a elite car care orange cutting pad.

This was working magic with just 1 hit and finishing down nicely too, the whole car apart from the bumpers was corrected and then refined using red elite car care pad and a mix of megs 80 speed glaze and some megs 7 show car glaze which was then applied and buffed leaving a super slick finish.

50/50's





Corrected but need to be refined









Heres a few shots upto now, still have the bumpers to correct/refine and then to apply the fk1000p tomorrow.

Total time today was 8 hrs and pretty please too with the progress so far...

Tyres were quickly dressed using megs endurance for some pics.













Wheels will be having 2 coats of fk1000p tomorrow too.


More pics and fully finished shots coming tomorrow.

NOW THE FINISHED PICS AFTER 1 COAT OF FK1000P AND TOPPED OFF WITH SOME ZAINO Z8: ENJOY































And finally some before and afters:











Thanks for reading and all comments welcome as usual.

Paul
