Baker21 & dooka 'Double D' vs Mercedes C250 Coupe AMG Sport....

Hello all and I hope your keeping well...........

So, for those of you that aren't aware the Skoda is up for sale and hopefully moving on and for anyone that is interested the details can be found here:

http://www.briskoda.net/forums/topic.../#entry3262482

In the mean time my 'replacement' has arrived and I needed to get it all protected 'dooka' style

How better to complete a 'New Car Detail' than to pop back to my second home and team up with Rob to sort out the new motor, so after a trip up north I arrived at dooka HQ with the car looking as follows:























The car has only just clocked over 1k in terms of miles and has only been washed a few times but we weren't expecting anything too troublesome with the detail, so with the sun beating down we got cracking.........

The Detail Process:

As always I was keen to get the wheels off and get them sealed up, so no messing here, it was time to get the car in the air:





Arches weren't showing much sign of dirt:





Each wheel was laid out on a Planet Polish RiMat:







While I tackled the wheels Rob got cracking with some Megs APC and a Detailer Brush on all the shuts:







Meanwhile, after some Megs APC, dooka Woolie Wheel Mitt, Iron-X and AS Tardis the wheels looked as follows:





I then decided to seal up the wheels with some G-Techniq C5:



Rob meanwhile was rinsing the car down:





Each wheel was then put back on and 'bagged':



Time to get the front in the air:'





Next two onto the RiMats:



Rob then foamed the car:



Iron-X was doing it's thing on the wheels in the meantime:



Rinsed and dried:







G-Techniq C5 applied:





Wheels put back on, torqued up and bagged:



We then washed the car using the 2BM and ofcourse the dooka Woolie Pad Pose:



The car was then rinsed and with things hotting up we went around the car claying both the paintwork and windows:



Rob was happy with this new stickers:



The car was then rinsed and moved inside where it was dried with some CG Wooly Mammouth Drying Towels:



Now while this may be a C250, I am not a fan of all the badges on the rear end so I decided to remove them - Before:



During:









This was the best we could manage between us:



Then after some AS Tardis and some machining with Megs 205 on a 3M Yellow Polishing Pad - After:



Looking much better IMO and the 'Quality Inspector' also agreed:



Rob and I then went around the whole car with the rotaries using Megs 205 and a 3M Yellow Polishing Pad removing some wash marks when the car had been picked up from new and adding some gloss to the paintwork:





Some spot pad action:



Followed by some big pad action:



















The prep of the car was in good shape and apart from the collection wash, which had induced some marring there was little to show in terms of correction, very little visible.

Following on from the machining the engine bay was given a wipe-down with some 'test products':




G-Techniq T1 was applied to the tyres:



G-Techniq M1 on the exhaust - Before:



After:





G-Techniq G3 on the windows:



A quick sticker removal on the driver's door - Before:



After:



Followed by a dooka sticker on the windscreen:



The car was then dusted down with a dooka Duster:



Due to time restraints and my personal preference we decided to apply G-Techniq C2 v3:



Finally after a quick once over on the interior with George....
