Wife's new toy - lapiz blue estate

Recommended Posts

Picked up our 30k miles Lapiz blue estate last week.

Dealership hadn't prepared the car but I asked them to leave it like that so I could see how it had been treated and also so they didn't do any more damage to the paint than was already on it.

Found a few scrapes on it but should be able to correct them out.

So car will be getting a fair bit of detailing done to it in the coming weeks as and when I'm off and the wife isn't using it.

Made a start on it yesterday. 

Bilt Hamber Snow foam 

2 bucket wash

Rubbers badges, door shuts etc cleaned with detailing brush and Bilt Hamber surfex HD.

EZ clay cloth used next.

Another wash.

Jayswax ceramic quick detailer applied.

Autobright class cleaner.

Wheels also got a quick clean  they need to come off to be done properly. 

Left it there, but it looks loads better already.

Couldn't agree more.

Looking forward to running the Flex rotary over it with some 3m. 

Will be looking at a great deep shine on it then.

As you can see, it's a bit of a swirl monster atm.

Made a start on the correction yesterday.

Hoping to finish it off today, but it's way hot.

1st stage done and a couple of panels have had 2nd stage.

Took it easy with the weather being what it is.

Think it will be much the same story today.

Meant to be even hotter today so progress may be even slower.

It’s a great bit of kit when you have no usable garage. 

Looking good @Booth11 - love the black hatches with those smoky rear lights!
