Finally finished - my panamera

Bought a panamera from an independent whose paintwork was rather dull and lifeless, the previous owner clearly had a penchant for local car washes as was heavily swirled and spiderwebbed.

However, was a good price, well kitted out and still under warranty so took the plunge even though had never detailed a car to this extent before.

First thing I did was to get the diamond cut grey alloys powder coated Matt black which I thought would be a better combination with the white and am very pleased with them - makes the calipers stand out a whole lot more too!

Process was:

Jetwash
Carpro reset shampoo
AG tar remover
Clayed
BH korrosol decon
Scholl concept heavy cut pad with S20 black
Scholl concept medium cut pad with S20
Scholl Finishing pad with menzerna 3800

I'd originally intended to apply gyeon syncro but my indoor space didn't work out so had to change to a coating which was able to be applied outside so I temporarily protected the paintwork with BSD until weather was ok 3 weeks later:

Jetwash
Carpro reset shampoo
AG tar remover
BH korrosol decon
BH cleanser polish DA applied
BH cleanser fluid
Carpro CQuartz 3 UK 2 coats
Carpro Bliss

GTechniq C5 applied to wheels after full decon
GTechniq C2V3 topper

All in all it probably took around 6 days, 3 cuts on the DA polishing took 3 days on its own plus having to prep it again a few weeks later for the ceramic coating.... but sooooo worth it!!

Took a couple of photos with phone camera which don't do it justice....and it had just started to spit with rain, but anyway, the difference to what it was is incredible, paintwork is popping!!
