Ferrari 360 Stradale Challenge with Swissvax Divine

This was one of my favorite details! First off this thing is quite a beast! The car was in great condition so it needed a polish and Swissvax Treatment. The customer was really concerned about the details. The engine had to be perfect, the wheels had to be sealed. The interior had to be immaculate.

So we stepped it up on this one big as the car was mint as you can tell from the pictures. What was in store for the exterior: a wash with Swissvax Car Bath followed by Swissvax Paint Rubber (clay) . After we polished out with Menzerna PO85RD, then finished with Swissvax Cleaner Fluid and Swissvax Divine.

Wheels were cleaned up with P21S Wheel Cleaner Gel and tires were cleaned up with P21S TAW. The wheels were then treated to clay, Swissvax Cleaner Fluid and finished with Swissvax Autobahn. The tires were dressed with Swissvax Pneu.

The interior was a vacuum and full clean up. We applied Swissvax Cleaner Fluid on all the carbon fiber bits and followed with Swissvax Divine, we did this on the door jambs as well. Glass (inside and out) was taken care of with Swissvax Crystal.

The engine was cleaned up with P21S TAW followed by Adamís In and Out Spray on all the hard to reach spots. We finished dressing all the items on top with Swissvax Pneu. The exhaust and metal pieces were taken care of with Adamsí Metal 1 and 2.
