Honda S2000 - Full Detail
Posted by Administrator on 5/17/2009 to Our Details
I guess I didn't really know what I was in for, the car just got back from the body shop and as we all know this car had over spray, rail dust, just about everything from sitting at the body shop for awhile. The interior was pretty dusty and unkept (I believe this was the body shop not the owner)

So here was the plan.. Wash, Clay, Menzerna PO203 with an Uber Orange/Green Pad (Makita/Metabo) and to finish Menzerna PO85RD with an Uber Blue Pad.

The wax well I finally got to try out Swissvax Glacier (and I like it, I'm going to try it out on a silver car next)

The interior, well the usual, Leather Master Strong Cleaner followed by Leather Master Vital.
Dash and plastics cleaned and treated with Einszett Cockpit.

Windows were cleaned with Lusso Glass Polish and an Uber Glass Towel.

As for the engine we used Adam's All Purpose (a nice inexpensive degreaser) and a Swissvax Wheel Brush. Einszett Vinyl Rubber Care for the rubber and Black Wow for the plastics.
