Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner was used on the wheels.
While the Sonax was setting up we hit the tires and wheel wells with APC
APC pulling off all the dirt and grime off the tires
All that dirt, grime, brake dust being getting pulled off the wheels, tires, wheel wells
Wheel woolies and ez detail brush were used on the wheels
We had to go back at the wheels to try to get more out of them, there was a lot of baked on brake dust, we actually tried Sonax FE and a clay bar did a decent job.
Then rinsed and hit them again.
Engine before - it's probably safe to say it has never been cleaned.
Used the Metro Air Force Blaster to blow out the leaves and debris from the engine bay
APC on the engine by was used to cut out the years of dirt and grime
After we let the APC do most of the work we agitated the dirt and grime with a boar's hair detailing brush
The Kranzle Pressure Washer was used to rinse down the engine bay

Auto Finesse Iron Out was used in the first part of the paint prep
Rinsed the Iron Out off the Q
After the Iron Out we foamed the car
