328i Detailed: Ford Explorer Expedition Excursion

2006 Explorer-

Very well kept car, only 16k miles on it, just needed a bit of cleaning up as it was covered in pollen and bird droppings. No before pics again as I was limited on time with this one. Defects would have been difficult to see with this color as well, I had to look at the paint under different lighting and angles to even see them and they were minor.

Interior:
Steam cleaning
Meg's Leather Conditioner
303 Aerospace Protectant
Meg's APC

Exterior:
CWG
Foam Cannon
CRC spotless System
PC using m105 and an orange pad via PC in some spots
Menz 106ff and a white pad via rotary
Stoners Invisible Glass
Megs ASD
Hyper Dressing
Opti-seal

Expedition
This car was trashed, paint was in terrible shape with lots of swirls, interior was filthy and smelled terrible, it was one of two I did for a local dealer.

Before:







After:
2 step machine correction really helped bring this paint back, I believe 3-4 steps would have been needed to make it perfect though, and the dealer wasn't looking to spend that much on this car. It was however one of the easiest black paints that I've worked with. I noticed clear coat "checking" on the hood, so I wouldn't have wanted to get too aggressive with the paint as that is a sign of cc failure.

Excursion

This truck is monster sized, it barely fit lengthwise in my garage, but I loved the fact that it was a diesel. The exterior involved an ONR wash, clay, wax and one step with Megs 151 and the interior involved vacuuming, steam cleaning, leather treatment and treatment of the plastics/vinyl. Sorry, no but once again I have no before pics, but it was fairly clean.
