Nissan GTR Enhancement Detail - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

This gorgeous Daytona Blue Nissan GTR was brought in to bring the paintwork back up to scratch.
The care was littered with swirls, buffer trails and random deeper scratches.

The car on arrival.

Wheels, tyres and arches cleaned first.

Avalanche snow foam during the pre-wash stage.

All of the rubber trims, grills and tighter areas were cleaned out with Work Stuff detailing brushes while the foam was dwelling.

2 bucket method contact wash with Auto Finesse Lather.

After tar and iron fallout removal, the car was taken inside for clay bar.

Everything was dried off with plush drying towels and all of the panel gaps and bits blown out.


The delicate areas were taped up, ready for machine polishing.

Some before and after during the polishing stage.

The headlights received a light polish to clear them up.

The interior leather was cleaned with ODK Refresh.

ODK Attire applied to the tyres.

I was sent Boyd Coddington's Signature Carnauba Paste Wax... so it would be rude not to put it on the GTR's refreshed paintwork.

And the final result.

Would be good to know what correction it required to achieve that polishes pads ect

Great work though

Thanks I love the colour. I've been lucky enough to detail 6 in this colour now.

The wax is lovely.
Smells like crayons.
Spreads so far when you're applying it and comes away super easy when you want it to. I tried removal a panel at a time. The whole car, then applying - having a coffee and removing an hour later and it was just as easy every time!
The finish feels so slick.
