Zafira spruce up

So on Saturday stared this at 13:50


So went something like this:
TFR
Rinse
Wheels cleaned
Rinse
Fallout removed with auto glym magma
De tared
Wash
Rinse
Noticed I missed the wheels
Detar the wheels

How it looked before polishing

But looking closer:

Done a few touch ups and had a bit of a coffee and started correction.

So after plenty of polishing using a orange pad on a das6 with turtle wax t20


Then the car got a good coating of fusso and a final wipe down with car plan number 1 super gloss

Finally got finished around half 9 with this:






No perfect but a big improvement from where it started.

So now for the interior next week
Sills will need paint before the end of the year but as it’s a relatives car not sure what they want to do there.

I'm glad i'm not the only one thinking at first glance why would you leave an expensive fluffy wash mitt or pad on the ground

Thanks folks, I'll try to get some better pics when I am doing the interior, the camera did the car lots of favours before the correction process.

Never thought of it at the time but one can wonder.....

Why is it you do a load of work yet one spot on the front bumper I missed has been bugging me

Cheers Ash, paint on this one was so nice to work with even though I was just looking to improve what was there rather than correction.
