How Martyn Used Our Products

I started with the wheels. The car was jacked up and the wheels removed. Wheels were initially washed with Gtechniq G-Wash before Gyeon Iron was applied and left to dwell. Once all iron contaminants were removed I applied Gtechniq Tar and Glue to remove any tar deposits. After I applied some Panel Wipe then applied a coat of Gtechniq C5. Hubs and Calipers were painted later. The car was foamed with Gyeon foam and left to dwell for 5 min before being rinsed. The car was then washed with the two bucket method then rinsed.

Gyeon Iron was applied to the car left to dwell and then rinsed again. All tar spots were removed before I clayed all body work and glass. I set about polishing the car with Menzerna's final finish and a chemical guys green hex logic pad. I only had very light swirling and this combo removed them all swirls and finished down nicely. Panel wipe was used on all surfaces to remove polishing oils before Gtechniq C2 v3 was applied.

Trim was treated to Gtechniq C4, Glass with G1 and G2, tires with T1. Interior was cleaned and protected with a range of Gtechniq products.
