Swissvax'ed: ADV.1's White Lamborghini Gallardo

This car had never gotten any sort of "Detailing" other than just normal washes once a week by some car wash guy. The car was full of swirl marks and had some severe oxidation and exhaust residue in some parts.

We decided to tackle this job with Swissvax Cleaner Fluid Professional polish to remove the swirls and oxidation and bring the paint back to life! We then topped the paint off with Swissvax Glacier wax for White paint.

Here's the products we used:

Products:

-P21s TAW
-1Z Blitz
-1Z W99
-1Z Windscreen
-Sonax Full Effect
-#0000 Steel Wool


Swissvax:
-Car Bath
-Protecton
-Seal Feed
-Paint Rubber (Yellow)
-Quick Finish
-Cleaner Fluid Professional via FESTOOL with a white Swissvax FINE pad
-Glacier wax for white paint
-Nano Express
-Cleaner Fluid Regular
-Autobahn PTFE Wax (Wheels)
-Pneu Glossy
-Waschpudel
-Black Puck Applicator
-Black wax applicator
-Micro-Absorb (Red)
-Micro-Polish (Blue)
-Micro-Fluffy
-Pneu Brush
-Detail Brush
-Wheel Brush
-Metal Polish


Here's how she looked when we got there... sad and dirty...












Looks like a Matt finish!










Check out the grime buildup in-between the rear emblem




Car had been keyed :/






Faded plastic piece





To begin the cleansing process, i start by cleaning all the plastic mesh pieces and the body creases with P21s TAW and a Swissvax Detail Brush



Here's how it looked after agitating P21s TAW















While i cleaned the engine bay, Beni worked on the wheels







Onto claying the exterior surfaces





Beni working on the interior






After a single wipe of leather cleaner on the center console



Second wipe





A 50/50 after applying Swissvax Protecton




Here's a 50/50 of the center console. The bottom (Passenger) side had been cleaned... after 4 cleanings... and the upper (Driver) side had not yet been touched.




Polishing








In this picture the fender on the left side had been polished and the driver door to the right had not yet been touched. Check out the difference in gloss and color!




Polishing the hard-to-reach areas



Beni working on the wheels







Removing Swissvax Glacier







And the result... sorry for the not-so-great pics... it was about 2am...













And the professional photoshoot following the detail job

That's all for that one! Thanks for looking!

Not mine. It belongs to our VP Miguel. I haven't been with the company anywhere near long enough to be that baller!
