Beau Technique vs BMW 645i cabriolet detailing from a different angle.

Now heres something with a difference and one for those that like detailing from a different angle. Its not all about perfect paint and the most costly wax. Its about taking things to that next level. Revitalising and reconditioning. Taking the car to its utmost maximum potential. Ive done a couple of these such jobs in the past but never had much of an interest from potential clients. After numerous correspondence between me and my client I popped over and took a look at the vehicles in question and discussed further about his needs. Needless to say, much time past and conversation flowing the first port of call was the convertible roof. He wanted it cleaning and protecting. Sure I can do that but why not maximise what you have and recondition it. I explained further and though he had used a number of mobile valeters in the past and none met his expectations, he instilled trust within me to do things right. So the car was kept in over night and ready for me to cover it up and get to work.



As you can see plenty of polymask and masking tape to ensure the vehicle was totally untouched. Now on to the wear and tear issues...

















Plenty of dirty areas. Typical markings of the metal work underneath and some shiny areas from wear and tear. This is all enevatable as the fabric is subject to the elements. A light mist of water and on with the soft top cleaner...



This was brushed on and left for 25-30 minutes...



Then agitated with a brush and water...







As you can see. Not a lot of grime actually embedded...



Washed down thoroughly with water and an old non silicone sponge...



And left much cleaner...







This was air dried at lowest speed setting on cold to give a natural breeze to aid drying. Roof was then vaccumed readying for the colour coat...



And on with the colour coat. not for the faint hearted and if done incorrectly, can cost a handsome level of cash for a new roof...





After application the roof looked a lot better given a new lease of life. Much richness and deep colour...









This was left for a couple of hours then a final coaxing with the air dryer on cold at slow speed to aid in a quicker but natural drying...



And onto the final stage of water proofing the newly restored roof...





I was also asked if I could give the outside a quick freshen up to make the exterior of the car fit in with the newly restored roof. Washed with Optimum no rinse ( ONR ). dryed and a once over with Valetpro speed wax. Wheels sealed with Zaino ccs. Glass cleaned inside and out and tyres dressed with Valepro traditional tyre dressing. Sitting on Ascari 22" wheels, this beauty looked crazy for now. Rest assured though. This and another very unique RRS will be having a good few days of deep cleaning and correctional work. Just a few final shot teasers...







Thanks for looking.

Cheers all. Thought it would be a little more interesting than a few scattered after pics or the typical before / 50/50 / afters type affair. Something that gets overlooked quite a lot.

Lovely job on the roof Scott, how did you find the Renovo to work with? I usually brush my designated cleaner on anyway but the idea of brushing on the protectant stages as opposed to spraying on looks interesting as the Nanolex/Gtechniq that i normally use seems to go everywhere

Cracking kit. Used it before but never really thought of pushing it until now really. I just do application as per the book matey. You get chance to ensure its even and liberal if neccesary. Totally transform the car imo. Will look a whole new car once its been detailed.
