Cool Offset Detailing Essex: Maserati Gransport 'Design Guigiaro' Wet Sand & Correction





Hello, my name is Daryl and I run Offset Detailing, a car detailing service based just outside of Rayleigh, Essex. I have won many awards throughout the years with my own cars in the VW show scene and thoroughly enjoy all aspects of the automotive world as well as motorsport and classic vehicles.

At Offset Detailing, our services range from full paint correction, paint enhancement, new car details, show car/concourse preparation to a simple full wash and sealant.

Wheel refurbishment is also available on site.

We are also mobile within the Essex, London, Kent and Surrey areas.

Offset Detailing offer highly professional service with car detailing options for all budgets.




Booked in for a paint correction detail was this Maserati Gransport ‘Design Guigiaro’ which was pretty much trashed by the paint shop. Sand marks, heavy scratching and swirl marks were evident all over the car. The roof was horrific!!!

The two front wings were repainted and what remained was alot of orange peel which the owner requested to be wet sanded.

After a full wash process decontamination and clay the front wings were hit with 2000 followed by 3000 and then polished with Rupes compounds and pads as was the entire Maserati using Rupes Zephir and Scholl S3 Gold making a change to the Rupes norm. IPA wipe downs after every hit with the machine.

Refinement was with a Rupes yellow pad and Scholl S40 – I haven’t used Scholl in a long while and made a refeshing change. It certainly finished up beautiful!

Protection was Auto Finesse Spirit wax applied by my bare hands – no applicator. A spot of ‘hand waxing’. Finish Kare Poly Slick was used as an after spritz.
Wheels, calipers and exhausts treated with Sonax wheel sealant, glass sealed with Gtechniq.

Interior was vacummed throughout, Auto Finesse Crystal applied to the inside glass and Chemical Guys for the interior.

ALOT of pictures below – enjoy!!!










Cleaned ready for paint inspection.



Paint shop woes...


Huge amount of hazing.


Ouch.

Glad to see this shine back!!

Agreed! I didn't get the name of them I'm afraid.
