Arrow Magic Detail • 400hp Focus RS • Minor Correction • Finished with Illusion !!

Hello all

Thanks for taking the time to look at another Magic Detail write-up. This one saw me on my travels over to Chester to sort this KMS400 Focus RS out over a 2 day period. Once again this one was in the awesome (and rare) Performance Blue.

On arrival the car was sat outside ready and waiting..









Iron-X can be seen working its magic here.



Sadly, as I was up against the clock on this one and the weather was pretty poor on day 1, I didn't take many pictures of the cleaning and decontamination phases but I more than made up for it on the polishing phases





Pre-refining...



Some others..

















Under the florescent lighting..



Do you want to see some moar??











All the compounding was carried out using a combination of the 15mm Rupes Bigfoot alongside yellow pads and Scholl S20, which was further refined with the Rotary using 3M Ultrafina on a matching blue waffle.








This left me with a very sharp finish as above after two Eraser wipedowns. Then it was time for some protection. As always I left it up to my client to tell me what he wanted from the car, whether a rich wet look, loads of gloss or not really bothered as long as it lasts well I gave him a choice of 3 Mitchell & King waxes, and in the end he chose my own unique blend which was developed between myself and M&K, which is aptly named "Illusion".

It smells of Amaretto and is retained within a billet aluminium container..





In testing this has lasted for around 8-9 months, and crucially it is very hard wearing. I took a sample of this stuff (and several variations) down to Russ @ MCC for us to have a play around with, and it was impervious to almost everything, even an alkali only took some of the edge off. Really well made, and as for the results, well I will let you draw your own conclusions...















Door shuts were sealed also, for added protection;







Thanks for looking

All comments and questions are welcome.



Matt.
