ABC Detailing - 610bhp+ Frozen White Ford Focus RS Show Preparation Detail



Hi guys, it seems to have been a while since I posted anything here but there will be some interesting stuff over the next few months!

Around 6 months ago we viewed a very special Ford Focus RS, with the hope for it to be ready for yesterday's Ford Fair show. The main reason for such a far out aim was because something seemed to be missing in the engine bay... This was away being rebuilt and will be getting a completely custom head, with the intention to become the fastest Focus RS in the country with nearer to 800bhp as the aim!



I will get hold of the spec when I get a chance, but onto the detail!

The aim for this one was to have the best tidy up and give it some show gloss, regardless of durability, before the car comes in for a full correction detail very soon.

A few before shots, and onto the wheels.







The car was then snow foamed with AMDetails Snow Foam to remove the majority of dirt before contact.





Washed using the usual two-bucket method, followed by decontamination with AM Iron, Auto Finesse Oblitarate and a clay mitt.

The car had been sat in a compound for around 5 months prior so had picked up a fair amount of iron filings and general fallout.









After drying off, attention was paid towards the engine bay, polishing up the chrome and under-bonnet mirrors, carbon fibre panels and cleaning hoses.

A few before's with afters at the end.





Spotted something I've never seen in an engine bay before...



Wheels and calipers received a coating of Swissvax Autobahn.



Trims were dressed with AF Revive.





Paintwork was given the new gloss-enhancing product from Auto Finesse - Ultra Glaze, along with a coat of Illusion.





And the final photos -





















Some interior shots.








A final arty one with the Clio

love the wheels, finish on the motor looks awesome.

what does the owner win for the fastest RS in the country then? personal point of view appreciate the time and effort and detail goine into the motor but for the price and what ultimately it still is a ford focus RS for me id have something different. But then the world would be boring so fair play to the owner.

There are mirrors inserted into the underside of the bonnet to add a bit more bling underneath!
