Ariel Atom - Cleanse & Protection Plus (Stripped down)

The owner of the Ariel Atom has previously book his toy in for a cleanse and Protect detail, with a few bolt on services. This was to take place after a weekend away with a group of lads and their trip around the Highlands of Scotland. Little did he know the weather on this weekend would turn foul and got caught on numerous occasions with a wall of water travelling toward him off HGV coming in the opposite direction. As you can imagine this also contributed in getting grim git in every area of the exposed Atom.
Atom on arrival on yet another wet and dreary day in Glasgow.

The atom was treated as all vehicle booked in for a detail. Wheels and tyres pre cleaned. Prior to the full car receiving 2 snow foams and rinsed. Although this has to be the first time I have snow foamed and interior. The car was the 2 buckets washed and the engine was degreased and worked over with various brushes. Once again prior to being rinsed and brought indoors to be clayed.

Once all gel coated panels where clayed they were put to one side, as these would be machine polished and protected prior to reassembly.

The wheels where removed and once again taken out side to be fully cleaned and remove all fallout present. These where later clay bared and wiped down with 7010 prior to being coated, with Max protect UNC-R.

Steam cleaning was then carried out on the engine and all suspension components as well as the brake callipers. Once I was happy with the callipers. These where as before wiped down and sealed this time with Carpro Dlux.

One area that would require some work was the exhaust. Discoloured due to the heat and water from the owners trip up North.


defineddetails.P1550474 by defined.details, on Flickr

Due to the arduous nature and sore fingers. Due to lack of access most of this would have to be hand polished with the britmax twins. The rear box was later removed so as to gain access to the rear of the silencer. I jumped between exhaust and the rear suspension components. Cleansing and sealing as I went with Plish Angel Esclate and Master sealant.

Yes I did. The owner was kind enough to take me out for a small spin on the 74 and had the pleasure of driving it back. The sound of the supercharger right behind you head is something else. But passing HGV and you not even up to the wheel nuts is a tad daunting.
