Lexus LS600h - Ceramic Pro - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

This luxury barge came over from Harlow in Essex to be treated.
The car took a knock in November - repaired at an insurance approved body shop, it wasn't finished quite to the standard it was in before.
The front wing was replaced, a repair in the door and new side skirt.
Unfortunately the colour match was a little off and there was a ripple in the door.
We booked it in with my preferred painter to be brought up to standard as well as re-paint a few other areas along the way.

The order of the detail,

Full safe wash and decontamination

Full assessment and paintwork

Back again for another safe wash and clay
Wet sand whole passenger side
Major Enhancement Detail (2 stage machine polish)
Ceramic Pro 9H
Ceramic pro Light
Ceramic Pro wheel & Caliper applied to wheel faces
Ceramic Pro Rain on all exterior glass
Full interior deep clean and protection.

Onto the car.

And assessing the paint work.

This is the new wing - there was too much red in the base coat.

Some nice buffer trails - pretty much all over.

Clouding headlight

At this point the car went off to be painted.
A few weeks later - the paint had been baked 3 times and was ready for detailing and coating.

Straight onto the polishing stages.

Due to ilness, my paint guy was down a man. To save him time, I said I'd flatten the passenger side of the Lexus... all 5 meters of it...

The rear end had been painted at some point, well most of the car had, but the number plate was left on.

The wheels were looking a little dull so these were polished to brighten them up a little.

The engine bay was cleaned and dressed.

That looks really nice - definitely responded well to the treatments and I'm really liking the colour, think it suits the car well (even more so now)

Absolutely incredible work!! That's a lovely colour too.

You've got a good painter by the look of it!

Only the roof had original paint - but it's generally fairly soft and thin.
