Renault Sport Megane 250 Cup - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

This Sport Yellow RS Megane 250 came in as it was looking a bit dull.
The car had seen it's fair share of automated car washes in the past.

The order of the detail,

Full ODK Safe wash process.
Decontamination - tar removal, iron fallout removal clay bar and an IPA wipe down.
Multi Stage machine polish - most areas received 2 cutting stages, followed by polishing and final refinement.
System X Crystal applied to the paintwork.
System X Crystal applied to wheel faces.
Exterior glass coated with System X Glass.
Interior cleaned and protected with System X.

The car on arrival.
The current owner is a lot more enthusiastic about caring for their cars so it wasn't too dirty to begin with.

The paintwork was then refined further for more clarity and gloss.

The wheel faces were coated with System X Diamond.

Certainly a big improvement. Yellow can hide swirls very well like white.

What pads and compound did you use

It was a mixed process on this one, the bulk of it was,

Koch Chemmie H8 on a KC wool pad.
H8 on a Meguiars microfiber cutting disc.
M2 on a Rupes yellow pad.
Car Pro Essence on a Royal Pads Red pad.
