Talking Dont F**K with your Fiancée MAJOR key damage repaired! Wet sanding porn

There is an old saying that I was told many years ago and it goes like this. “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!” A while back at Orchard we took a long look at the detailing industry over here and made the conscious decision to focus our efforts on proper detailing It seems that every garage in every street here there are people “detailing” on the side not only undercutting prices to levels of that below some valeting businesses, we decided that there was plenty of work for them to allow us to concentrate on taking time doing proper indepth paint rectification and restoration which is where I personally got into detailing in the first place. This car is a case in point to highlight what we are up to at the moment. It’s not focusing only on high end cars but detailing that not only pushes our skill but allows us to obtain the highest level of finish.
So without further ado I introduce to you a 2002 Ford Mondeo Diesel!! Not a McLaren or Ferrari but a 12 year old Mondeo that was on the wicked end of a scorned fiancée this should be fun that’s for sure. Across the rear deck in capital letters down to the metal was the adoring word “A55HOLE” and some nice wave symbols along the passenger side from the head light to the tail light.

Initially the whole car was cleaned and the panels were degreased and the scores were first fully cleaned out with panel prep. Then the scores were filled with Cellulose full gloss paint that allows the scratch to be filled in a single stage without the need of 2 stages first with colour then with clear which will always leave the edge of the damage visible. As most of the score was down to the bare metal, the paint was filled in layers so to avoid sinkage of the paint leaving a dent in the shape of the score after some time.
Once filled and allowed to dry for a few days the car was brought in and fully wet sanded first using 2000 grit wet and dry then refined back with 3000 grit Farécla foam backed pads to remove the sanding marks. The entire rear deck and passenger side was sanded and we decided to have some fun then and see how good we could get a 12 year old black Mondeo and I have to say it came out not too bad.


























To finish the car off, OrchardAutocare’s Speed Seal and Perfection were used and Glitz on the tyres bringing the finish bang up there with the best of them!! Hopefully you have enjoyed a breath of fresh air with something different and more in keeping with what we personally love doing!!

As always All C&C more than welcome!
