Sorry in advance as it rained for the most of last week. Also I felt bad that by the time the customer came to pick up it was raining.
What's first....we sprayed the wheels down with P21S Wheel Cleaner Gel, next the wheel wells were sprayed with P21S Total Autowash as well the tires where sprayed as well. Bug and tar were presoaked as well with P21S Total Autowash...you get the picture.
We then went on to fill the foam canon with Adam's All Purpose Cleaner knocking out any previous wax, bug and tar and anything else not taken care of by the P21S. The X was rinsed and with the water still on the X we moved on to claying the car, including windows.
After claying we moved on to access the condition of the paint. I moved on to using Menzerna Super Intensive Polish followed by Menzerna PO85RD to finish off the paint correction. The window trim was polished out using Menzerna PO85RD. As a last step I used Swissvax Blau Weiss for the first time and I have to say it made the car pop very nicely. :wow:
The interior was cleaned up using the Uber Interior Kit. The metro vac was used to vacuum the carpet and seats. The vents where dusted, and plastics were cleaned up with Einszett Cockpit and Einszett Plastic/Vinyl Cleaner. The leather was cleaned up with Leather Master Strong Cleaner , conditioned with Leather Master Vital and protected with Leather Master Protection.
The final touches:
The plastic trim was taken care of with Black Wow.
Windows were cleaned with Lusso Glass Polish.
Tires where dressed with Swissvax Pneu.
Door Jambs were cleaned up using Einszett Spray Wax (cleans nicely and adds some protection)

Almost the exact same products I used on my car. Menzerna IP, P085RD, Swissvax Cleaner Fluid and Blau Weiss. Its been about 4 weeks since I applied now and it seems like I got about 1-2 more weeks of protection before I need to reapply. Pretty good for a single coat. Next time I'll do two coats to see if that improves longevity. And if you are looking for a place to buy Swissvax, Phil is the man! Good job Phil!
