Jaguar XKR Black Edition
 
This was done a while back now and still having to catch up on write ups i thought i would get back in the swing of it with this one....the client...who's Bentley Arnage I did...seen here.... http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...bentley+arnage was keen to get this looking pristine for his trip to France....heres what it looked like....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1150490.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1150491.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1150492.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1150493.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1150494.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1150496.jpg

Was then moved to an area where i could get on with the cleaning stages....and to find the rest of the issues....Ragdoll Cats....3 of them all using this and the owners XK8 as a sun lounger....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160034.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160035.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160036.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160038.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160039.jpg

As you will see from some of these pictures there is nothing coming back from the paint at all....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160040.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160037.jpg

The car was washed and cleansed in the usual manner...wheels first etc etc etc....the roof was treated to a good brush and wash then an extraction....it was then left overnight to fully dry out ready for some protection....

The odd spec of dust...fibres that were flying around were tended to with this....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160046.jpg

Leaving it all ready for some protection that was in the form of Fabsil....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160047.jpg

First coat was brushed on with a 2 inch brush and left to dry....the second coat was applied via trigger spray and left these results....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160048.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160049.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160050.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160051.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160053.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160054.jpg

With the roof out of the way it was defect spotting time under lights....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160057.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160061.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160062.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160063.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160058.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160059.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160060.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160065.jpg

After a successful session on the bonnet it looked like this....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160078.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160079.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160080.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160081.jpg

And after a wipedown with IPA x3 this is what was left....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160082.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160083.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160085.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160086.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160087.jpg

By the way the polish in question....with a finishing pad....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160091.jpg

But you just know that aint gonna be good enough for me...and it wasnt....anyway on with the rest of the job in hand....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160089.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160090.jpg

And the same combo gave these results on the front wing....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160092.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160093.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160094.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160095.jpg

Moving on to the door....which is in a bit of a state....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160096.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160097.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160098.jpg

Or should i say was in a bit of a state....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160099.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160100.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160102.jpg

Rear quarter was fairing no better....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160103.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160104.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160106.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160107.jpg

Bumper was treat to the same treatment....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160109.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160110.jpg

Moving over the boot lid it he was looking a little left out....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160111.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160112.jpg

So i gave him a little spruce to ease his tension....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160114.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160115.jpg

And this is pretty much all the pad and polish combo couldnt shift....again...do i hide my work...not according to this picture....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160118.jpg

So spot pad out and wella....(not the hair care product)....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160119.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160120.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160160.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160161.jpg

With the boot lid looking comfy it was onto the other side starting with the rear quarter this time....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160123.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160124.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160125.jpg

Slight scratch....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160126.jpg

And gone....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160127.jpg

Carrying on....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160130.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160133.jpg

Lower of the NS door looked like this....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160134.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160135.jpg

And a small scratch to the side of the door handle....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160140.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160141.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160142.jpg

At this point I would post some pictures of the near side front wing....but alas they have disappeared....so I will jump straight to a few light source images for your pleasure....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160175.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160179.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160180.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160191.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160195.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160198.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160200.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160203.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160204.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160210.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160212.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160213.jpg

And a couple of ghostly shadow light shots...

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160221.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160222.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160223.jpg

As i said earlier this was never going to be enough for me and as always going above and beyond the call of duty I hit the whole thing with Nanotech Super Gloss...Stripped of all masking and readied it for Zaino....of which Z2 was activated with ZFX and 3 coats with Z6 were applied...it then had a coat of ZCS with a wipedown of Z6 10-15 minutes later leaving a stunning cat ready to purr through France....

Enjoy....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160266.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160272.jpg

Anyway enough of all the beating about the bush pictures...lets get it outside....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160301.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160302.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160362.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160367.jpg

It was then moved back to its original beauty spot for some pictures from whence it came....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160373.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160376.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160399.jpg

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160401.jpg

And to combat the Ragdoll cats....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160402.jpg

Will leave you with a simple but stunning picture...says it all really....

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...n/P1160352.jpg

Hope you enjoyed the write up and thanks again for dropping in on another Reflectology paint recondition....

Fantastic work :)
Good turnaround.
Shame about the parking location.

Problem is, so many times I see lovely cars like this being abused by their owners because they tend to have too much money to care. :( I won't be letting any small furry animals near my Jaguar, that's for sure!
Thanks for sharing. :)

steve from wath 17-09-2012 12:32 PM

very nice as usual

ive done a few black cars of late and have used zaino on them

it does suit a black car , and shows off the shapes very well

the big cat looks very slick,well done again

Russ,have a look at the wolfgang range for a good deep gloss for darks:thumb:
zaino i tend to use on cars ,whose owners want something quick and easy to maintain and wolfgang for those that like appling wax

cossienuts 17-09-2012 01:12 PM

Dont think its a case of having too much money....its about the non educated and once the 2 weeks i had spent up there had passed he had spent a lot of money on products to keep them looking as good as they possibly can....he also spent a few hundred quid on a water filter system....

Most of the damage came from the dealership in all honesty as he had only had it a matter of weeks....the cats though could have been controlled better....
