Immense Focus RS MK1, Ford Fair Prep - Griffiths Detailing

I spent 4 days last week preparing this amazing MK1 Ford Focus RS for Ford Fair this weekend, the car wasnt in bad condition but it has been a show car, so driven to shows and wiped down with a cloth so the paint was looking dull and the owner wanted the car to really stand out.


First I tackled the wheels, I pre sprayed with Maxolen pre wash and then rinsed after a short dwell time, I then sprayed arches and tyres with a mild G101 mix and wheels with Smart Wheels, I used wheel woolies to clean wheels and valet pro brush on fronts.

















After rinsing the wheels I snow foamed the full vehicle using Magi Foam and the rinsed and washed using 2 bucket method and Auto Finesse Lather





The vehicle was dryed off and brought inside, I checked the paint depth





When checking the paint there was lots of small scrathces which was making the paint look dull.








I used s17+ to leave this











I then refined the paint using megs 205, rupes diamond gloss and the glazed using EZ Glaze





I used Swissvax Autobahn on wheels, Maxolen tyre treatmeant on tyresm Auto Finesse Crystal on windows








Engine bay was cleaned





Interior was cleaned also





3 layers of Auto Finesse Desire was applied





To leave this finish

























Thanks for looking

Chris
