How Bruno Used Our Products
Bought in 2010, the Coupe featured a poor paint condition with heavy swirl marks and some nasty holograms (especially on the bonnet).
The paint-correction process began with a good car-wash using Autoglym's Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner. After that I began decontaminating the paint using Zaino's Z-8 along with Bilt-Hamber's Original Clay-Bar, after that I washed the car again.
Using the Rupes Bigfoot 15 with a Hex-Logic Yellow Pad and Menzerna's Fast Gloss I began correcting the paint. I've spilt the car in 50x50cm areas to be easier.
In total those areas received 3 passes with the Hex-Logic Yellow Pad and Fast-gloss, 1-2 passes with the Green Pad and Power Finish, finally 1 pass with the Hex-Logic Black Pad and Super-Finish.
Between passes the polish residues were cleaned using Autoglym Microfibre Cloths.
To finish the work, 2 coats of Dodo Juice Blue Velvet were applied with Z-8 Grand Finale Spray Seal on top.
Windows were cleaned using Autoglym's Fast-Glass. The tyres and wheels were cleaned Bilberry's Angelwax, and conditioned using Auto Finesse Satin Tyre Gel.
