Arrow Ford Fiesta ST II- Gleammachine. (Poor dealer prep)

I was contacted after the customer saw some pictures on Facebook, of this Molten Orange ST that I recently prepared.

After viewing the car it was evident that the car had received poor cleaning and preparation, prior to handover. Some areas had been poorly machine polished and deep scratches inflicted.

Lack of clarity.

So over the course of 3 days to complete, the vehicle was washed, de-contaminated and prepared ready for rectifcation.
The majority of defects were removed using medium grade polishes and foam pads, some areas requiring a little more cut. (after pictures below prior to refinement)



Paintwork then refined, pre-cleansed using PolishAngel Esclate via DA, and sealed using 2 layers of PolishAngel Master Sealant.

*Alloys sealed with FK1000 Hi Temp.
*Glass sealed using Carlack glass repellant.
*Plastic trim treated with Wolf's Trim protectant.
*Tyres dressed using Gyeon Tire. (heated with hairdryer for added durability)
*Final wipedown with AD Elegance.

Final Results.

Thanks for looking, comments welcomed and appreciated.

Stunning car, i suppose dealerships get away with such sorry excuses for a prep, because most people dont see the swirls, or accept them as normal.

Whatever the case, you made the car appear as it should have done in the first place, perfect! Nice work bud
