Dales WRX Detail

Postby Immacreflections » Mon Aug 01, 2011 12:17 pm

This is a forum members 07 WRX booked in for a basic detail and correction. The car arrived and was clear that the previous owner had shares in drive thru car washes evident by straight scratches over the bonnet and roof and horizontal scratches on the tail lights!

The idea of this detail wasn’t to perfect it but to improve it to a reasonable standard. As you will see from pictures it is no where near perfect but A LOT better than previously as the job specified.

Products used:
Bowdens Body Gel- http://www.bowdensown.com.au/premium-car-care
Iron-X Soap and Nerta in foam lance- http://waxit.com.au/proddetail.asp?prod=CP172&cat=22
Iron-x on wheels- http://waxit.com.au/proddetail.asp?prod=CP15&cat=22
Menzerna Polishes- http://waxit.com.au/proddetail.asp?prod ... OEM&cat=22
Lake Country Pads
Zaino Leather cleaner and conditioner- http://waxit.com.au/proddetail.asp?prod=Zkitl&cat=67
303 Aerospace protectant- http://waxit.com.au/proddetail.asp?prod ... OEM&cat=22
