How Ian Used Our Products
Bought this car earlier this year second hand. Car was in a very poor state. Paintwork had never been cleaned. You could sand wood on the bodywork it was that rough.
1.Hood clean: Cleaned inside with Milton sterilising solution, rinsed outside then washed 3 times with scrubbing brush using Johnson’s Blue baby bath. Dried and sealed with fabsil. Hood like new.
2.Car - This actually took several weeks.
a. Rinsed and mild wash with fairy. Clayed 9 times all over. Clayed windscreen 3 times and clayed headlight lenses 2 times.
b. Out with the Makita. Various pads starting with cutting and using the Megs 3 step process.
c. Washed with Megs and dried with water magnet.
d. Wet sanded front bumper and headlight lenses. Polished headlight lenses and front bumper to mirror finish.
e. Removed all wheels and clayed 6 years of ingrained brake dust, hand polished and sealed.
f. De-rusted hubs and callipers and backing plates. Wire wooled then painted with Hammerite using my badger spray gun.
g. Removed rear exhaust and polished whole lot to a mirror finish.
h. Went for a drive and enjoyed it :-)
Thank you for looking.
