These are a great drive.

Interiors surprisingly tough and once you get the white Scottie dog hairs out it'll come up great with wet vac and some detail brushes

So initially I've decided to tackle the paint with Rupes UHS Easy gloss to reduce the swirl marks/ scratches for the time being before I carry out a full correction..

To behing with the car was soaked with Autosmart Tardis to soften up the heavy contamination.





To remove the embedded contaminants I used Gyeon and Bilt Hamber clays teamed with Megs Last Touch detail spray as a lubricant





With the car decontaminated I could properly inspect the defects..



Pretty common defects for the age of the car, a few deeper RIDs located throughout the paintwork







The UHS Easy Gloss Pad and Polish combo along with the RUPES LHR15 were my weapons of choice





Getting some good level of enhancement, especially for a single stage process, with the UHS combo. Really started to bring the Blue flake in the Astro Black Metallic Paint







Moving onto the rear drivers side, quite a few more RIDs, but nothing out of the ordinary..



A huge improvement again for a single stage process





Really starting to see the deep glossy finish



A pretty cool 50/50



The swirls + scratches in the drivers door seemed to take a bit more work to shift, luckily the UHS polish has a flexible working time





A couple passes later, starting to really enjoy the colour now..









More updates to come

It's got some spec on it.

It's a charming little car that even I've enjoyed.

They are charming your right! Looks good with the black on black

Looking good, My Clubman has a rear door handle water ingress issue (Quite common), so when washing the door sort of gets a mind of it's own!

They have plenty of flaws, but even I'm surprised how much I like it.

I have noticed recently that the demand is getting higher. The Clubman was ignored before, but people are now noticing it's more practical than the hatch.

Great job on the clubman. Used to have one in red. Was great fun to drive. Definitely a car I would buy again given the chance. Nice work!

When we bought the wife's it was bad inside but it cleaned up well, got some new mats with floor studs to stop them moving about. Worst thing I ever did was show her the sport button, economy's gone through the floor. Lovely cars though

The interior plastics are pretty tough in these so hoping it'll clean up well.. Yes I've noticed they seem to slip around, I'll have to grab some new floor studs for it! Don't worry, my economy has too but the sport button is very good fun
