Smile Auto Detox: Range Rover Evoque

Hello

Welcome to another detailing thread by www.autodetox.co.uk

This lovely 2 door 61 plate Range Rover Evoque was booked in for a exterior protection detail for a very nice client of mine, I will be returning at the end of the month to do his Porsche Boxster too

Firstly I took a look around the car before taking a small selection of prior to detailing shots













No drama just the usual build up of road grime, onto the job in hand.

Wheel arches:

A thorough jet wash, liberally sprayed with Surfex HD worked with 2 vikan brushes & given a good rinse







Tyres cleaned too:



Alloy wheels:

A thorough jet wash, acid free wheel cleaner applied worked with various metal free wheel brushes



A tad small this one



Let's try this one instead



Perfect









On to the body work:

A thorough jet wash down, pm3 applied via pump sprayer & rinsed off





Apc & a Swissvax detail brush was used to clean fuel filler area, seals, badges etc all round the vehicle this was rinsed off as I went along











Car washed 2 buckets gritt guards & plush wash mitt







There was little to no tar any small spots were treated to tar remover & rinsed off

Clay stage brought a little something off the paintwork but nothing major still an essential stage though







Finally dried with plush drying towels & work cloths for the shuts around the car



Pre was cleanser Auto finesse rejuvenate does exactly what it says in the bottle & preps the paint perfectly for wax, this was applied via the da & soft pad



Wax: Swissvax Scuderia love this wax so soft & leaves a super glossy finish



Applied to matt plastic trim Swissvax protecton



Nice eh !





Rim wax to the alloys:





Brilliant chrome to exhaust surround, this was applied with a microfiber pad there was no need to be scrubbing at new tail pipes with wire wool





Glass cleaned with 3M foam & Swissvax quick finish on the paintwork to finish

Here we have it exterior protection detail to a Range Rover Evoque 2 door beauty

Finished shots:

Alloys has a lovely sparkly finish






























Before:



After:




Regards
Barry

Lovely finish. Although the car is certainly not my taste. RR need to sort themselves out and make something BRUTE!

I would agree with this, never seen so many ledges for water to sit on ! I think I need a blower.
