Signature dish by - Beau Technique

Through a few weeks worth of many a correspondence via email, a chat on the phone and test section undertaken brings a conclusion to this beat of burden. One I am slowly finding being the "signature dish" by myself. Finally, date was set and 9am kick off for what can only be described as a long and tough couple of days with this Range Rover sport. Due to the day being absolutely baking it just was not a good idea to start aiming at all manner of pictorials. Vehicle was treated exactly the same as any other so a thorough and concise cleand a decontamination process was undertaken. Iron x treatment and clay treatment were both executed inside to ward off the hot weather and aid in the car not drying prematurely. Once all was completed it was time to measure the piant thickness, remove wing grilles and get cracking. Under the lights was and eye opener and clarified what the next 2 days would consist of...

So the trusty Makita rotary, Scoll S17+, Menzerna po85rd and relevant pads were at the ready. After 2 hits with wool, polished and levelled up the results were very pleasing bar the very little RDS that remained...

Trying to gather a split picture between panelwork and this was the best I came out with ( Poor qaulity )

Passengers door after...

Passenger wing prior...

And after...

No befores of the bonnet but the end results and this picture speak volumes I feel...

Drivers rear quarter before...

And after...

Drivers wing before...

And after...

So as you can gather. Quite a tough set to with this big beast. Geoff attacked the interior whilst I carried on with the fiddly lower sections and intricate areas with spot pads and the rotary. The roof was awkward as there was barely any more than 2-3 feet gap between the roof and the ceiling of the garage! Vehicle was rewashed once all completed ready for last step procedures. Trim / Tyres / Arches all dressed. Exhausts polished with britemax twins. Wheels sealed with Smart rimwax. Glass cleaned and sealed with Permanon glass. Chemical guys ez creme glaze then 2 coats of Chemical guys blacklight by hand application and a final wipe down with V7. Once all completed ( approximately 28-29 man hours ) It started raining heavy so no outdoor pictures at this point just a few after pics not doing any justice...

It doesnt stop there. I now have the pleasure of maintaning this on a monthly basis and as luck would have it, the weather was dry though only the odd break in the sky for sun to rear its head. These are a few light pictures outdoors after a stage 2 valet and V7 top up...

Thanks for taking the time to look at this.

Its now awaiting some genuine 19" BMW wheels which are due delivery and colour change so shouldnt be long before its booked in and detailed. Another one on the maintenance scheme to boot.:D
