How Richard Used Our Products

This detail has been planned for quite a while now, since the middle of last year and I've finally got around to doing it. I had to spread it out over 4-5 days and probably 40 odd hours as it was very bad!

I spent a whole day just cleaning the muck off it, which was mainly tree sap and moss, washing it and claying. It was looking so much better already but still had a long way to go to restore its former shine, it just didn't look right in pink! This has been my hardest detail yet and I found working on single stage paint a lot trickier than clearcoat.

I wasn't aiming for total swirl removal but just to get it back to red, although I think I did manage to remove a lot of the heavier swirling.

I also sanded the wiper arms and sprayed them hammerite smooth as the paint was flaking a lot.
