Prep -

Wheels were cleaned with Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner, once the wheel cleaner indicated red we were ready to brush them down with the Auto Finesse Hog Hair Brushes as well as the Wheel Woolies.






APC was sprayed on the tires and then brushed. Tires were cleaned for dressing in the final stage of the detail






The car was then foamed with Adam's Car Wash and washed down.

Various detail brushes were used to clean grills and various tight areas.

Final rinse.


Nanoskin Wash Mitt wash used in conjunction with the clay bar.



Metro Vac Sidekick used to dry off the crevices and blow out the wheels.



Uber Super Drying Towel used to dry out the bigger body panels.


Paint Correction
