ABC Detailing - Spirit Blue Ford Fiesta ST-2 CQuartz Finest Detail



Hi all, another from ABC Detailing!

A few months ago I was contacted about applying some protection to a brand new Ford Fiesta ST-2, so a date was set to apply the superb CQuartz Finest a few days after delivery of the car.

The car was in great condition with very little iron / tar contamination and minimal dealer-inflicted marks or swirls, but the car was cleaned thoroughly as usual to ensure the best bonding with the sealant.

Moving onto the detail, starting with wheels







Car foamed with AMDetails Foam to remove any loose dirt



Then washed with AMDetails Bubbles Shampoo and the new Microfibre Madness Sponge





Onto decontamination; Almost zero Tar and Iron contamination showing on the paintwork, brake dust on wheels being the main issue, soon dissolved with 3 hits of IronX.









The car was very carefully clayed with the most mild of CarPro clays, again picking up very little, but leaving the car in perfect condition to move inside for refinement.





The car was showing very little in the way of swirls or imperfections, so the main aim was to remove those before laying down the protection.

The car was then wiped down with Eraser ready for CQuartz Finest application.





The interior was given a quick hoover and dust down







A few little details taken care of



The front grill took a good 30 minutes to clean with a microfibre!



Two coats of Finest were then applied to the whole car







Glass cleaned with AF Crystal and 3 coats of Gtechniq G1 applied all round



Wheels and plastics coated in Gtechniq C2v3







Arches sealed with Aerospace sealant



And here are the finished photos!

Looks nice & wet.

Any reason for using C2V3 on plastics instead of C4?

Thanks both!

Not particularly Guru, both work great with huge durability, but the ease of use is on another level with C2v3 that's hard to ignore!
