I want to say that when I met up with this customer he didn't think that I could do much to the car. The car was bought new with under 8k logged on it since its purchase in 2001. What was done - Exterior - Wheels were prepped with Sonax Wheel Cleaner and cleaned up with various brushes - Tires were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down - Wheel wells were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash - Wash down and rinsed - Door jambs were cleaned up - Clayed - Dried - Paint inspected and measured - Wheel Wells were cleaned and dressed with Adam's Undercarriage Spray - Tires dressed with Swissvax Pneu - Rear cab window was cleaned up - Masking - 3 Step Paint correction (Meguiars M105 with an Uber Yellow, Menzerna Super Intensive Polish with an Uber Green and Menzerna PO85RD with an Uber Blue) - Inspection with Fenix, 3m Sun Gun, Infratech, and natural sunlight - Last Step - Menzerna Power Lock / Topped with Lusso Oro - Rubber and Plastics Treated - Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed - Exhaust tips cleaned Products used: (feel free to click the link below for more info) Exterior: Valugard Detail Wash P21S Total Auto Wash Uber Yellow Wash Sponge Uber Clay Bar kit with Optimum No Rinse Einszett Spray Wax Meguiars M105 Menzerna Super Intensive Polish Menzerna PO85RD Menzerna Power Lock Lusso Oro Wheels/Tires Sonax Wheel Cleaner Swissvax Pneu Interior Sonax Dashboard Cleaner einszett Leathercare einszett Plastic Deep Cleaner Convertible Top Raggtop Kit (Fabric) Glass Adam's Glass Cleaner Adam's Glass Sealant Tools: Infratech 5300 Fenix TK11 Brinkmann Fenix TK40 Flex 3403 Makita Metabo The Uber Foam Pads (5.5inch) Tons of "Uber" Microfiber Towels Uber Drying Towels Brushes Cam Spray Pressure Wash and Foam Canon Attachment Before Interior Boot After Waxing the door jambs with Lusso Oro Final interior shot Before shots Wheels before Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner in action Wheel after Sonax Pre-Soak with P21S Total Auto Wash Wash Top being cleaned Claying Shots of the car after wash and clay (pretty bad) Adam's Undercarriage Spray Okay so this was the tricky part, figuring out what would work on the back window of the cab.
