Default Corsa Combo Detail

Busy day today - two cars to detail starting 8am this morning.

Second one being this very faded and very very swirly Vauxhall Corsa Combo Van..

The paint was extremely poor, very marred and extremely flat...

The alloys were chrome, and only 9 months old but very dirty!

Usual steps taken and menzerna 200 compound working up to 800 polish..

Actually went through 5 brand new pads due to the paint being cut clogging the pads...













Wheels tackled first:







Finally sealed and waxed...



Then it was wash time:









Then it was clay bar, and the two stage compound polish and refine:











Nice half and half of the roof showing how bad the paint was:





And some usual reflection shots after a good few thin layers of wax for protection:













7hrs hard graft on this one, but owner was amazed with the outcome

Great work. Sometimes the worse it is the more satisfying it is at the end.
