Big Detail (Pic Heavy)

I spent nearly 8 hours on Saturday giving the R a big detail to clean away all the muck from the winter and sealing it for the summer.

Process:

- Alloys cleaned, CG Diablo wheel cleaner
- 2 bucket wash, Zaino car wash
- Dried, Dodo Juice towel
- Entire car clayed (paintwork, glass, alloys)
- 2 bucket wash, Zaino car wash
- Dried, Dodo Juice towel

- Tyres dressed, AG Tyre Foam
- Alloys sealed, RIMwax

- Paintwork hand polished, Gtechniq P1
- Glazed, Poorboys Black Hole
- 2 coats of Wax, FK1000P
- Door & boot sills cleaned and dressed, Megs APC & Poorboys Black Hole

- Glass cleaned, Megs Glass Cleaner
- Plastics and arches dressed, AG Bumper Care
- Exhaust trims polished

- Engine bay cleaned, Megs APC
- Engine bay plastics dressed, AG Bumper Care

- Interior hoovered
- Plastics dressed
- Speedo screen polished to remove scratches


Enough words, onto the pictures:
