Ferrari F430 ( Extensive ) Beau Technique - The Midlands detailer




You can keep up to date with our day to day shananigans on Facebook and Twitter

This was most certainly a very challenging and well rounded detail. Extensive list of varying things needing tended to:

Front number plate removal
Machine polish front number plate
Refit number plate
Engine bay detail
Badges removed and replaced with genuine items direct from Ferrari
Interior detail
Paint correction
Stone chips touched in
All manner of wear and tear paintwork items to be tended to
chip damage to front bumper
corrosion to passenger door handle
bad repair to be made good on passenger sill

And plenty more. So much so it was not viable to document every last component.



















Plenty of pre-soaked cotton applicators with tar and glue remover applied and left to soak...



No damage left behind and numberplate glue strips are fully removed...



Now for some paintwork tidying up. First up, Rear quarter air intake grilles heavily chipped...



Area's fully masked and wiped down with panel wipe then re-sprayed with a quality satin matt black. This was undertaken over a course of several light sprays to ensure both grilles and inner ducts were uniformly painted to factory finish...





Poor repair on front bumper left a very uneven line on the mat black area under bonnet / within bonnet jam. This was panel wiped, Fine line taped then fully masked prior to painting. A very awkward task with not a perfect end result but a far better and more even line..





Some sections within then door shuts suffered from wear and tear which required tidying up...





Followed by same wear and tear of the scuttle panel...





Client requested paint protection film to be removed as it was poorly installed and looked quite ghastly. This unearthed a bad smart repair with the worst colour match imaginable but more importantly it had been painted without the ppt removed...





On with the show some more. The grey section of front bumper intakes was damaged along with an almighty chip to front bumper plus the repair required on the passenger sill and passenger door handle requiring tlc, I roped in a good friend from Smart Finish ltd to assist...















( Only image I have of sill after correction and badges replaced )


Time to get stuck right in. Badges removed ( Pinna Farina and Ferrari )



Swirls, We got swirls!...





But not any more...





Sill...



You can see the outline of the old Pina Farina badge...



But not anymore...





Passenger door...



The legend ...



And after looking yards better...



Front bumper...



After,,,



Back bumper...





After...





Bonnet...



After...



Varying details tended to and badges replaced along with new clips sourced and used to refit Ferrari badge at rear...







Paintwork protected with Polish Angel jubilee ltd edition carnauba wax...



Engine bay detailed and finished up...









Interior fully deep cleaned...











And after some exceptional man hours later, The Ferrari F430 is now looking in top notch shape and box ready for the summer months of fun and throttle...













Thanks for looking...

Any chance on the details of the smart repairer? If a detailer is using them they must be good

He sure was. Though we discussed in detail of the work being undertaken and exchanged many messages through out the 6 weeks it lived with me he hadn't anticipated the dramatic transition.

If your not in Leicestershire it would be a waste of time as he covers that area only. We've collaborated on plenty of cars but as with smart repairs, Finishing is key hence why I prep then let him do his withcraft then I finish up. Any reputable detailing company should have some decent trades they can call on to work logistics for a full make over if they don't do it in house so to speak.
