Let's start with the interior clean up first.

We pulled out all the wrapper and a few of the decals on the glass. Did a vac and wipe down with a cockpit cleaner, followed by a nice leather cleaning and conditioning to prevent denim transfer. Glass was done as well as door jambs were sealed.

Removing the tags and wrapper left in the car






















Leather cleaning and conditioning - even though the car is new I decided to clean with Leather Master Strong Cleaner followed with Leather Master Barrier to do some preventive maintenance to protect the leather from denim transfer.








Door Jambs cleaned and protected - Sonax Polymer Net Shield was used on the jambs


Door seals cleaned and protected with 1Z einszett Gummi - great way to keep them fresh and new as well as during the winter months its keeps your doors from freezing shut.

Wheel cleaning - Sonax Wheel Cleaner Plus and various brushes


Uber Boar's Hair Brush for the lugs


Wheel Woolies for behind the spokes and the first 1/2 of the inner wheel barrels


EZ Detail Brush for the back half of the wheels and in between the calipers and wheels - super tight especially with the stock 19's.


Smaller Wheel Woolies for between the spokes


Adam's Boulder Brush for the face of the wheels - super gentle.


Rinse them off.





Decon with Sonax Fallout Remover (it pulled up quite a bit of iron particles and fallout with only a few hundred miles on it)








After all the decon wash pressure washed off we foam the car





Rinse and blow dry



With the darker/matte wheels I have found we always need to go back and hit them up with a detail spray to ensure they are perfectly clean.


Washed and Dried - next up clay bar



Making sure the car is perfect prior to the Xpel Ultimate Clear Film installation. A good polish with Sonax Perfect Finish and the Rupes LHR21 with Rupes Yellow Pad.


After the complete prep we made sure all the areas that were getting protected with Xpel were cleaned a few times with an IPA wipe down.

Areas being covered - front bumper, full front fenders, full hood, mirrors, headlights, a pillars, front of the roof, door cups, full side skirts, luggage area on the back bumper and behind the rear wheels on the rear bumper.





















Some final touches -
Glass cleaned after the Xpel Ultimate was installed -





Getting the tires cleaned and dressed - using Stoner's Tarminator, Auto Finesse Obilitarate, Adam's Super VRT









No after shots with the stock set up we went to Ben and Mark at Rogue Engineering for some goodies.

Rogue Engineering installed H&R Springs, Rogue Engineering Spacers 12 mm, and Rogue Engineering Stainless Steel Brake Lines

H&R



RE 12MM Spacers Front and Rear



RE SS Lines

RE SS lines installed


Back at DD it was cleaned it up and took some final shots.

Looks great.
I like that you use the fallout remover before the wash instead of after washing before the clay process.
