DetailMyCar - Range Rover Sport, Wetsand correction detail & enhance.

Welcome to another write-up from DetailMyCar - This time, a Range Rover Sport HSE, with some serious attention needed, particularly on a resprayed rear 1/4.

The car was dropped off with me at 08:30 on Saturday so I got a few pics showing some of the defects.















After this I set about snow foaming with Chemical guys no touch foam





While dwelling I went over the car with some G101 and a Meg's brush to get into all the crevices, gaps and badges.



The car was then rinsed off, and wheels attended to.

Firstly cleaned with AS Smart Wheels, multiple brushes then cleaned with IronX









Arches were then cleaned with G101 and Tardis with a large wheel woolie.





I then hand washed with my own shampoo, two buckets and a lambswool mitt before rinsing once more. Tardis, Ironx and Clay bar treatment were next to get the surface as clean as possible before polishing.



It was then taken inside to be dried off and taped up.

After taping up I started with the bonnet, after 4-5 combinations from S17+, PO85RD3.02, Extra fine, various pads I ended up polishing with Scholl S3 Gold and a Blue compounding pad and refining with Megs 205 and a yellow 3M pad.

This was used for the majority of the car.

A few 50/50's and before vs after shots











Before


After


More 50/50s down the offside


Moving on to the nearside rear 1/2 of the car I knew I had a lot of work on, it had been resprayed but was very dull, flat and showing a lot of orange peel.

I ended up wet sanding this with 1000, 2000, 3000 and finally 4000 by DA sander to get it nice and flat with the worst of the orange peel completely gone.

These are pics taken at various stages through the wet sanding.













Polishing was Megs 101, Scholl S17+ and Megs 205 to restore the finish and leave it completely refined.

Starting to polish


Remember how much orange peel you could see on this panel earlier


Far clearer reflections










All done


The rear door was also sanded but only 2000, 3000 and 4000 as it wasn't quite so bad, this was also polished up using the same methods.

Rear door before




After





After finishing polishing the whole car, I went over it with Eraser and a Eurow cloth to remove any polish, the Tornador was also used to blow out the dust where needed.











Tyres were then dressed with Pinnacle, simply the best tyre dressing in my opinion....


Before


After


Wax was Collinite 476S super double coat to make sure the car was left with some solid, long lasting protection. I also waxed the wheels with it.







Trims were restored with Wolfs Black out


Before


Before


50/50


Glass cleaned with Meg's glass concentrate and a proper cloth.

Here are the after pics, it really was a lot of work and I didn't even get time to polish the roof but hopefully will get it back to finish that but I am really pleased with everything else, especially the nearside rear 1/2 of the car as it really looks 100x better now!

Thanks again for reading, enjoy the pics










































Thanks again!
