Stornoway Grey Range Rover - Correction

You may remember this vehicle from our previous work. The customer came to us to give him a good base to work from on his recent purchase. After having the Protection detail carried out the customer was delighted, 6 months later after learning more about the trade of detailing the vehicle was back to be corrected of its swirls and defects that had been put in place by the previous owner.

Having full motor trade insurance, we were able to offer this customer a service which is becoming increasingly popular here at AMDetails. Most of our customers have work where they leave the country on rotation. So they have limited time when they are back home and don’t want to go 3-4 days without their vehicle. Here at AMDetails we liaise with the customer to try and get the vehicle in 1 week before they return. Meaning we can collect and store the vehicle in our fully insured and secure detailing bay so when the customer arrives they simply come and collect their prepared vehicle and enjoy their full time back in the UK.

During this Correction we were also preparing out newly purchased works van and preparing for the Nairn Show 2012 So being tight for time we didn’t actually catch a lot of photography. But from what we have on the camera this is the write up.


So on to the matt.


Then in to easy cleaning mode.


We then have a little look around. Just the usual road grime and Seagull pleasantries.










Seems a few new friends have moved in to live.....


On to the usual AMDetails Wash Process.

Wheels
  • Wheels cleaned
  • Wheels tar and iron deposits removed


Paint work
  • Lower area of vehicle given citrus wash to break down road grime
  • Door shuts and boot shuts cleaned with APC
  • Whole vehicle snow foamed to loosen and break down dirt deposits
  • All the finer details paid attention to with APC and Brushes
  • Rinse
  • 2 bucket method
  • Rinse
  • Tar and iron deposits removed
  • Rinse
  • All paint work and windows clayed to remove further contaminations
  • Another application of foam
  • Full vehicle rinse paying attention to panel gaps and trims
  • Vehicle padded dry









See told you there were not a lot of images. Just the usual foam ones when I had a spare 5 minutes whilst it works its magic

Once inside it was obvious that we had our work cut out for us. After stripping off all the fillers and protection we had previously added this is the damage.



Once happy with our combination this is the level of correction achieved before we refined.









Back out for a wash to remove the polishing dust. Then taken in to be blown dry and then Protected with 2 coats of Acrylic Sealant and then 1 coat of Wax (as requested by customer)

Metals on the side step and wheels were then Glazed and protected with high temprature wax.



Some finished snaps











Thanks for reading guys!

Looks mega, i maintain a Stornoway Gray RRS and have done since new, it always amazes me the kind of gloss that can be achieved with it, it's a really nice colour!

Thanks for sharing!

Lovely Work and transformation Alan.
Silver is such a pain to capture correctly. But you have managed it well.
