Aston Martin V8 Vantage - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

This gorgeous V8 Vantage was booked in for a light freshen up which soon turned into a bit more.
The previous owner didn't care much for the car in terms of safe wash techniques so there were a fair few swirls and scratches to get through.

The order of the detail,

Full Auto Finesse safe wash process.
Decontamination - tar removal, fallout removal, clay bar and IPA wipe down.
Major Enhancement Detail - multi stage machine polish.
System X Pro ceramic coating applied to the paintwork and wheel faces.
Exterior glass coated with System X Glass.
Interior lightly cleaned.


Onto the car. It didn't seem too bad on arrival.

Wheels, tyres and arches cleaned first.

Sonw foamed with Avalanche.

After the wash and chemical decontamination processes, the car was taken inside to be clayed.

Straight onto the machine polishing before and after shots.
All photos are after cutting - pre refinement.

Holy big pictures Batman!

They just fit on my 2560x1440 monitors. I imagine anyone on a 1080 will have horizonal scroll (my browser is usual in a window the size of a 1920x1080 monitor).

Anyway.... Good work on the motor.

Looks good. What is the purpose of the pads under the tyres?
