2005 Range Rover TDV6 - Major Correction Detail

But now the the major correction on this Range Rover over the passed 2 full days, around 15hrs of polishing was carried as the car was suffering some major bush scratches and swirls, the car arrived first thing thursday morning from a trade client who needed it looking it's best :thumb:

Anyway on with the detail, car on arrival was pretty clean but still had to be foamed/washed/de-tarred/clayed etc ready for the paintwork inspection :wall::wall:

So as you can see in need of some TLC.

On with the polishing, broke out with the LC wool and s3 gold, most places were taking 2-3 hits and finishing down very well with the wool only needing a light refine with megs 80 afterwards.

Here are some 50/50 shots of the correction:

after the full machining process, including the correction and refining the car was the then given a really good IPA wipedown to remove any oils and fillers from the glaze.

The car was then applied with CCC gold rush by hand and the buffed, this was then followed with the CCC carnauba wax, trim treated, tryes/arches dressed, glass cleaned etc etc.

And 2 full days were have this.

I'd run out of s17 so straight opt for the s3, it's a trade car and he has got the original wheels to go on it for sale ;-)

Great transformation mate. Your heart must sink a little to think that at some point a festering sponge will be dragged over it.
